A new TV spot for The Incredibles 2 does a good job of showing just how difficult being a superhero parent really is. From juggling normal everyday chores - while keeping the world safe from super villains - to controlling an infant with superpowers, superhero parenting is tough!
Incredibles 2 picks up right where the first movie left off: with The Underminer (John Ratzenberger) attacking the city and the family of superheroes, the Parrs, doing what they do best: stopping him. After that incident, Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) winds up taking on the role of Mr. Mom while Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) officially goes back to work as a superhero. At the same time, Violet (Sarah Vowell) starts becoming even more of a moody and uncontrollable teen, and Jack-Jack starts exhibiting even more new and dangerous powers. One such monstrous transformation by Jack-Jack is shown scaring the bejesus out of Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) in the Incredibles 2 footage released so far. It seems that the youngest member of the Parr family is just full of surprises.
Disney-Pixar posted the new TV spot for The Incredibles 2 to their Twitter account (see the video embedded below), reminding audiences that the movie comes out this summer on June 15 (as if anyone could forget). Joining the existing voice cast is Bob Odenkirk as a potential new villain, as has been teased in the previously-released Incredibles 2 trailers and TV spots. Writer/director Brad Bird also reprises his voice role as the superhero fashion superstar designer Edna "No Capes" Mode for the Incredibles sequel.

The latest Incredibles 2 TV spot also reveals yet another one of Jack-Jack's powers, in addition to those that were revealed in the original Incredibles 2 teaser trailer and subsequent marketing material. It remains to be seen just how many powers Jack-Jack has in total in the film, as well as how that plot thread connects to the central storyline in the sequel - namely, Elastigirl being tapped to bring superheroes back into the spotlight.
The Incredibles 2 teaser trailer is now the most viewed animated movie trailer of all time, meaning fans seem ready to embrace chapter two of the Parr superhero family adventures. The Incredibles 2 is one sequel that Disney-Pixar fans have impatiently been waiting for since the arrival of the first movie way back in 2004. The newest TV spot should further get fans hyped for what should wind up being one of the biggest movie events of the summer, animated or live-action.
