The Parr Family
Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr/ Mr. Incredible - Mr. Incredible was once the ultimate superhero who possesses super strength and is impervious to most types of attack. Although Bob made a comeback onto the superhero scene in The Incredibles, it was a fleeting return as superheroes are now outlawed. Lying low, Bob is now a stay-at-home dad, looking after the youngest member of the Parr family, baby Jack-Jack, who also has superpowers including laser vision.
Holly Hunter as Helen Parr/ Elastigirl - Mother to Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack, and wife to Bob, Helen now has her chance to shine in the spotlight as Elastigirl when she's called upon to lead a campaign that will bring superheroes back. She has the ability to stretch and bend her body into different shapes and forms, and she's definitely still top of her game. Helen will need to be; a new villain is emerging and Elastigirl's going to need to lead the fight against him.
Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr - The Parr's teenage daughter who has the ability to become invisible - perfect for someone as shy as Violet - and can also project force fields, which has proven useful for her family's protection in the past. Like most teenagers, Violet professes a dislike for everything, particularly her brothers, but she's actually fiercely loyal to the Parr family.
Huck Milner as Dash Parr - The middle Parr child, Dash's name is a reflection of his superpower - super-human speed. Dash uses his powers to cause mayhem and exasperate and confuse his teachers. However, he's learning from his parents how to keep his powers hidden; he just wishes he didn't have to.
Jack-Jack Parr- The baby of the family, Jack-Jack makes everyone smile with his cute, toothless grin. But he's also a Super, and he could well turn out to be the most powerful one of all. It's just that no one is really aware of all he can do.
The Incredibles' Allies
Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/ Frozone - Bob's best friend and lover of the supersuit, Frozone has the power to make ice from humidity, which has caused the bad guys to slip up on many an occasion. He's more than ready and willing to come out of hiding and is most likely just waiting for the word.
Brad Bird as Edna Mode - With her impeccable taste in fashion, and her outstanding ability to design the world's best supersuits, Edna Mode is fierce, intelligent, and downright scary at times. She's a force to be reckoned with even though she's short. She's close to the Parr family, and will do all she can to help them.... except for putting capes on their suits. No capes, dahling.
Jonathan Banks as Rick Dicker - Rick heads up the Supers Relocation Program, helping the Parr family and other Supers to stay well hidden, and integrated in normal society. However, when his division is shut down, the Parrs are on their own. Banks replaces the late Bud Luckey in the role.
The (Returning) Bad Guy
John Ratzenberger as The Underminer - A supervillain, The Underminer appeared at the very end of The Incredibles. He wants to bring war and destruction on the world, but there's no way the Parrs will let that happen, whether they're supposed to stay hidden or not. Of course, he's not the big villain of the movie...
The New Characters In The Incredibles 2
Bob Odenkirk as Winston Deavour - Winston runs a Telecommunications company with his sister, Evelyn. He is rich, suave, and obsessed with superheroes. He's one of the driving forces calling for a Supers return, determined that the heroes can change the public's perception of them if given half a chance. Odenkirk won't say if Winston is a villain or not.
Catherine Keener as Evelyn Deavour - Evelyn might not have superpowers, but her brain power is second to none. She's a tech wizard, and the brains behind the telecommunications company she runs with her brother. She's great at problem-solving, and amazing with any tech issues. Ultimately, she could prove very useful to the Parr family when it comes to fighting crime.
Sophia Bush as Voyd - Voyd is a massive Elastigirl fan, and aspires to be a superhero just like her. She already has powers, including the ability to create voids that allow objects to shift in space, disappear, and reappear.
Paul Eiding as Reflux - A senior Super whose power, unfortunately, involves heaving hot lava. While problematic, the skill does come in handy in very specific situations.
