Things are getting all kinds of INCREDIBLE around here! The whole Parr family is back in action this summer when Bob, Helen, Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack hit theaters on June 15 in The Incredibles 2 movie. And I’m getting a sneak peek when I join 24 fellow bloggers in LA as guests of Disney/Pixar. Follow along as we head west (with a stop at Disneyland for Pixar Fest, natch!) to learn more about The Incredibles sequel. Here?s what?s about to go down at the Incredibles 2 Event- and I’ve added some Incredibles 2 coloring pages and activity sheets for your family at the bottom!
The Incredibles 2 Event | I’m going to Los Angeles!
You might have noticed that I’m a little excited?about all things Incredibles around here. Between Helen and Edna Mode, I’m not sure which woman I’m most excited to “meet” again this summer when they hit the big screen in Incredibles 2. I’ve been quoting both ladies non-stop and my kids are like, we get it, Mom, we get it. Can you not?
Oh, kiddos… it’s just getting started!
In case you missed it,?Edna Mode is at Disney World (and she’s coming to Disneyland, too!) as part of the Incredible Summer and Pixar Fest events this summer. You can run “with” Dash and earn these Incredible medals as part of the runDisney virtual race series. And I was SUPER lucky to attend a special press event last April where I got to tour Pixar Studios?and learn all about the making of this movie.
2018 is INCREDIBLE, indeed!
Up next in the Incredible adventures of Patty: a trip to Disneyland & LA to learn more about Pixar Fest, watch the new Disney Channel animated comedy series “Big City Greens,” screen the Incredibles 2 movie (EEEP!), and interview talent from the movie.
Here are the details so you can follow along (and I’ll update this post with more as they come my way!).
Pixar Fest at Disneyland for the Incredibles 2 Event
Guys, since the moment they announced?Pixar Fest at Disneyland, I knew I needed to be there.
I love Pixar. I love Disneyland. I love special churros and macarons.?Basically, this Fest is the Fest to end all Fests for a Disneyland fan like me. And thanks to special pixie dust from Disney and Pixar: it. is. happening! Follow along with #PixarFest on Twitter and Instagram for this one!
And even better? This is the first stop we’re making. I’ll be channeling my inner Miley when I land and head right to Anaheim for everything Pixar at Disneyland I can find!
“I hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream (of carrot cake churros) and my cardigan…”??Pixar Fest, here I come!
Goals for this portion of the trip: watch the?Together Forever ? A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular (Pixar fireworks? SWOON!) and settle in for the Pixar Play Parade. I can’t wait to see the new floats in person.
Disney Channel’s Big City Greens at the Incredibles 2 Event
As a mom of 4, I think the Disney Channel has been on my TV non-stop since 2003 or so. We are definitely a Disney Channel family.
“Big City Greens” is a new show we are eagerly anticipating. This show?follows the offbeat adventures of 10-year-old Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his wildly out of place family ? older sister Tilly, dad Bill and Gramma Alice. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm leads his family on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors. Follow along with?#BigCityGreensEvent?on Twitter and Instagram for this one!
It premieres on June 18 on The Disney Channel. After a screening of the show, we will be interviewing the series creators, brothers Chris and Shane Houghton (“Harvey Beaks”), who also serve as executive producers alongside Emmy Award-winning Rob Renzetti (“Gravity Falls”).
I tend to get major cool mom points when I get to interview talent like this- and with primarily?teens and tweens in this household, I need all the cool mom points I can get. Ahem.
Incredibles 2 Movie Screening and Interviews at Incredibles 2 Event
Finally: The Incredibles 2 movie is almost here and I’m thrilled that this family is back to work. We’re still waiting on the details for this part of the trip, but we do know a few things. We’ll screen the movie and interview talent at the press junket event. We’re not sure who is on our interview list, but here’s my dream line up:
Yup- all of them. I’m just going to put that out there into the universe and see what happens.
Incredibles 2 Event Interview List Update 5/30
SO. THIS. IS. AWESOME.
I said I’d put it out there, and I’m so excited to say it mostly worked! We just received the interview list for the Incredibles 2 Event and I am so excited to announce that we will get a chance to sit down with EVERYONE in that picture (minus Director Brad Bird).
SUPER interviews all around from this INCREDIBLE cast.
- Craig T. Nelson?(voice of ?Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible?) &?Holly Hunter?(?Helen Parr / Elastigirl?)
- Samuel L. Jackson?(voice of ?Lucius Best / Frozone?)
- Sarah Vowell?(voice of ?Violet Parr?) &?Huck Milner?(voice of ?Dash Parr??)
- Sophia Bush?(voice of ?Voyd?)
- Bob Odenkirk?(voice of ?Winston Deavor?) &?Catherine Keener?(?Evelyn Deavor?)
- ?Bao??Director Domee Shi?&?Producer Becky Neiman
We saw a little bit of the movie during the Incredibles 2 event at Pixar in April, and y’all, it is going to be one exciting ride with the Parr family!
Frozone, Honey (!) and Edna Mode are back as well, along with one crazy raccoon, new villains, and a few new Supers too. This is the Incredibles sequel we’ve been waiting for and I’m already packing my super suit as we speak.
I laugh out loud every single time I watch this trailer. Parenthood is not easy- even for superheroes like Bob and Helen. The Incredibles are the most relatable parents on screen today and I am so here for it.
Or, I’ll be in LA for it at any rate. Because… guys… I’m going to LA for the Incredibles 2 Event! Follow along with #Incredibles2Event for all the adventures next week.
