Jump to: Spoilers (46)
  • Writer and Director Brad Bird had stated over the years that he would only do a sequel to The Incredibles (2004) if he could come up with a story that was just as good as, or better than, its predecessor. The idea of Bob (Mr. Incredible) becoming a stay-at-home dad, while Helen (Elastigirl) becomes the breadwinner was there from the beginning, but it took several years for Bird to come up with the perfect story around which to write this idea.
  • Disney's CEO, Bob Iger, and Brad Bird announced in April 2014 that a sequel to The Incredibles (2004) was officially set and that Bird had come up with a story idea for a sequel. He also added that he was working on the script.
  • Writer and Director Brad Bird said he had old ideas from The Incredibles (2004) that he did not get to use, and that would like to use in the sequel, along with some new ideas as well.
  • Samuel L. Jackson is confirmed to be reprising his role of Lucius Best, a.k.a. Frozone.
  • In The Incredibles (2004), the movie mentions "fifteen years later", after the banishment of superheroes. The sequel will be released fourteen years after its predecessor.
  • This was Pixar's fourth follow-up film released many years after the previous to not take place several years later. The others had been Toy Story 3 (12 years after Toy Story 2), Monsters, University (12 years after Monster's, Inc.), and Finding Dory (13 years after Finding Nemo).
  • Instead of this movie being released on June 21, 2019, Pixar swapped release dates with Toy Story 4 (2019), as the film was being completed ahead of schedule, while the other was lagging in production, of which was initially going to be released on June 15, 2018.
  • This was Pixar's twentieth feature film.
  • For this movie, Huck Milner took over voicing Dash, as the character's original voice actor Spencer Fox's voice had deepened since The Incredibles (2004).
  • This was Pixar's fourth film to have a female protagonist, after Brave (2012), Inside Out (2015), and Finding Dory (2016).
  • This was Pixar's fourth follow-up film where the protagonist and side character switch roles, in which Mrs. Incredible/Elastigirl takes on the role of the protagonist from Mr. Incredible. The other times this happened was in Cars 2 (2011), where Mater took over from Lightning McQueen, in Monsters University (2013), where Mike took over from Sully, and in Finding Dory (2016), where Dory took over from Nemo.
  • Production on this film started not long after the release of Tomorrowland (2015), which was also directed by Brad Bird.
  • This was Pixar's first sequel to one of their movies rated PG in the U.S., and the second in the U.K. (Toy Story (1995) received a PG for its uncut U.K. release).
  • The Incredibles (2004) is the fourth Pixar movie to become a franchise, following Toy Story (1995), Cars (2006), and Finding Nemo (2003).
  • Incredibles 2 (2018) is the first Pixar sequel directed by Brad Bird, his second overall and will be the third official Pixar movie to focus solely on a human cast following both the first film and Brave (2012).
  • This was the seventh Pixar movie scored by Michael Giacchino, following The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007), Up (2009), Cars 2 (2011), Inside Out (2015), and Coco (2017).
  • It will also be the first Pixar sequel to a film he has previously scored.
  • The fourteen-year gap between the first film and this sequel was the longest waiting time between a Disney/Pixar movie and its sequel. (Finding Dory (2016)'s thirteen-year gap was the second longest, Monsters University (2013) was the third longest with a twelve-year gap, and Toy Story 3 (2010) was the fourth longest with an eleven-year gap.)
  • Brad Bird was the second Pixar director to have all of his films composed by the same composer, who was Michael Giacchino. The first was Andrew Stanton, who had all three of his films composed by Thomas Newman. Coincidentally, both won Best Animated Feature Oscars for their first two movies, and made sequels to their first movies.
  • This was the first sequel to a Pixar movie that takes place through a human's perspective.
  • During an interview in May 2013, Writer and Director Brad Bird reiterated his interest in making a sequel.
  • As of 2017, this movie holds the record for the most viewed animated teaser trailer of all time, with one hundred thirteen million views in the opening week. Coincidentally, the number 113 (preceded by the letter A) is a common in-joke in Pixar and other contemporary animated movies.
  • While Jack-Jack did have a voice in the trailer, it is currently unknown who actually voiced him.
  • Even though Cars 3 (2017) had not been confirmed to be the franchise's last Film, the currently entire Cars franchise was released in between the release of its predecessor and the sequel.

  • Jenny Slate's 5th Animated Film, after The Lorax (2012), Zootopia (2016), The Secret Life of Pets (2016), and Despicable Me 3 (2017).
  • The Incredibles (2004) was released the same year as Clifford's Really Big Movie (2004), which was the final theatrically released, traditionally animated movie of Warner Brothers until Teen Titans Go! To the Movies (2018), which released the same year as this movie.
  • This was Bob Odenkirk's second animated movie, after Hell and Back (2015).
  • This was Catherine Keener's second animated movie, after The Croods (2013).
  • Bonnie Hunt's eighth Pixar film after A Bug's Life (1998), Monsters, Inc. (2001), Cars (2006), Toy Story 3 (2010), Cars 2 (2011), Monsters University (2013), and Cars 3 (2017).
  • In the teaser trailer, Jack-Jack runs in a similar fashion of both Annie Nonymous from Roxy Hunter and the Myth of the Mermaid (2008) and Mr. Fit from Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (2008).
  • This was Samuel L. Jackson's fourth animated film, after The Incredibles (2004), Astro Boy (2009) and Turbo (2013). He also voiced Mace Windu in the 2008 movie, Star Wars: The Clone Wars - which served as a pilot to the animated TV series.
  • Pixar's Bud Luckey did not get to record any lines for Rick Dicker before passing away four months prior to the film's release, and he had been replaced by Jonathan Banks (he was announced to be taking over the role a month before Luckey's death). This made Rick Dicker the second Pixar character to be voiced by both an actor and a studio member at Pixar. The first had been Chick Hicks, who was voiced by actor Michael Keaton in Cars (2006) and Pixar's Bob Peterson in Cars 3 (2017).
  • Pixar's fifth sequel that re-cast some of the characters, which applies to Dash and Rick Dicker. The other four movies to do this are Toy Story 3 (2010) with Slinky and Andy (younger at the start of the film), Cars 2 (2011) with Filmore, Finding Dory (2016) with Nemo, Squirt and Jacques, and Cars 3 (2017) with Chick Hicks.
  • There was controversy when the title for this movie was first released. While the first film was titled "The Incredibles", this movie is simply titled "Incredibles 2". Many extreme fans expressed outrage about the removal of the word "The" from the title of the beloved movie's sequel's title.
  • When asked about returning characters for the film, except for Jason Lee who voices the main antagonist Syndrome (who gets killed when his cape got caught in a jet turbine in the end of the first film), Wallace Shawn who voices Bob's former boss Gilbert Huph (who was hospitalized by Bob for being rude and fires him in the first film) and Elizabeth Peña who voices Syndrome's agent Mirage (unfortunately, Elizabeth Peña died on October 14, 2014).
  • This movie reunited Breaking Bad (2008) and Better Call Saul (2015) actors Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks.
  • This was Isabella Rossellini's second time voice acting in a movie, after Closet Monster (2015).
  • This was the sixth Pixar movie where the voice work of the main director was not simply listed in the "additional voices" section or go uncredited, which in this movie, like The Incredibles (2004), applied to Brad Bird as Edna Marie "E" Mode. The previous four times this applied was with Andrew Stanton in Finding Nemo (2003) and Finding Dory (2016) as Crush the Sea Turtle, Up (2009) with Pete Docter as Kevin and Campmaster Strauch, and The Good Dinosaur (2015) with Peter Sohn as Forrest Woodbrush/Pet Collector.
  • This movie and The Incredibles (2004) came out one year before the closing point of a Star Wars trilogy. The Incredibles (2004) came out one year before Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005), and this movie came out one year before Star Wars: Episode IX (2019), the former movie also featured Samuel L. Jackson.
  • Jack-Jack's voice is archival recordings.
  • This is Bob Odenkirk's first family-friendly film since Dr. Dolittle 2 (2001).
  • This is Pixar's 2nd sequel/prequel film to be Rated PG by the MPAA, much like the first film was.
  • Evelyn Deavor has a very similar look to Roxanne Ritchie from the DreamWorks Animation movie Megamind (2010), another CGI superhero movie. That movie featured David Cross, who collaborated with Jason Lee (voice of Syndrome in The Incredibles (2004)) in the live-action Alvin and the Chipmunks movies.
  • This was Pixar's eighth movie to have a PG rating by the MPAA. The previous seven films to have that rating had been: The Incredibles (2004), Up (2009), Brave (2012), Inside Out (2015), The Good Dinosaur (2015), Finding Dory (2016), and Coco (2017).
  • This movie and The Incredibles (2004) were released in the same year of the death of a voice actor of one of the iconic characters in Beauty and the Beast (1991). The Incredibles (2004) was released in the same year of the death of Jerry Orbach, and this movie was released in the same year of the death of David Ogden Stiers.
  • This was the first Pixar movie directed by Brad Bird to not have any characters voiced by Lou Romano.
  • At one hour and fifty-eight minutes, this is not only the longest Pixar movie to date, but also the longest computer-animated movie to date, beating Cars's record as longest Pixar film, which was one hour and fifty-seven minutes.
  • This was the first of four consecutive sequels from Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is to be followed by Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018), Toy Story 4 (2019), and Frozen 2 (2019).
  • The Pixar short film Smash and Grab was originally going to precede this movie in theaters, but it was replaced with Bao (2018). Smash and Grab will now play with Toy Story 4 (2019).
  • Samuel L. Jackson's wife LaTanya Richardson Jackson will portray Honey Best, Frozone's wife, in this sequel.
  • Incredibles 2 (2018) is the first Pixar film to contain profanity.
  • The Ambassador's name is given as Henrietta Selick, a hat tip to animation director Henry Selick, who worked for the Walt Disney Studios' animation department from the mid 1970s to the early 1980s. After he left, he became a freelance animator and director on movie projects that include The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), James and the Giant Peach (1996), and Coraline (2009).
  • The appearance of The Outer Limits (1963) and Jonny Quest (1964) on television confirms the movie's time frame as the fall of 1964. Perhaps coincidentally, both shows aired on ABC, which is now owned by The Walt Disney Company. Disney, however, does not own those series, so both clips had to be licensed from their respective owners (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Brothers).
  • The Safari Court, where the Parr family live during the beginning of the movie, is modelled on the Safari Inn, a venerable motel (and frequent filming location) that is only a few blocks from the official headquarters of the Walt Disney Company in Burbank, California.
  • A neon sign can be briefly glimpsed which resembles the logo for the television show Jonny Quest (1964) which director Brad Bird has named as a profound influence on the world of The Incredibles (2004). Clips from the show also appear on television in the movie.
  • This was the first Pixar movie to have a merchandise deal with McDonald's for the McDonald's Happy Meal since Cars (2006), a twelve-year gap.
  • Reinforcing the 1960's motif from The Incredibles (2004), 60's era television shows like The Outer Limits (1963) and Jonny Quest (1964) can be seen on the Parr family's television (in their original animation).
  • Barry Bostwick voiced the Mayor of New Urbam (unmistakably a takeoff on New York City). He played the Mayor of New York City on Spin City (1996).
  • HIDDEN MICKEY: The spirals on Screenslaver's (Bill Wise's) hypnosis machine form a slightly lopsided, but still recognizable Mickey Mouse.
  • Released 4971 days (~13.5 years) after The Incredibles (2004).
  • As in The Incredibles (2004), Frozone's wife Honey does not appear on-screen. She is only heard yelling her husband from off camera as he runs off to don his super suit and help the Parr Family, again just like last time. According to Writer and Director Brad Bird, Honey was initially going to appear on-screen, and she even got her own character design, but ultimately they decided it would be funnier if she remained off-screen. The character design for Honey would still be used for a background character.
  • The way Elastigirl attempts to stop a train from colliding into disaster is done in a similar fashion to a scene from Spider-Man 2 (2004), where the titular character attempts to do a similar thing.
  • First time in a Pixar Animation movie that a protagonist is seen using a gun (Elastigirl uses one to shoot the lock on a door).
  • A typo on the movie theater marquee where Tony (Michael Bird) is dropped off towards the end of the movie reads "A113", one of the most famous recurring Easter Eggs. Several Pixar producers and animators studied at California Institute of the Arts in classroom A113 and this number appears in every Pixar film.
  • Second Pixar movie to feature a live-action clip within the movie. The first being WALL?E (2008).
  • At the end when the Parr family is dropping off Violet and Tony at the movies, the name of the movie is "Dementia 113." However, it is spelled with specific lettering to emphasize the "A 113," which is a famous Easter egg hidden in every Pixar film.
  • Initial box-office estimates had the domestic opening weekend at one hundred ten million dollars. Then, when it became the top pre-selling animated movie of all time, estimates rose to one hundred twenty to one hundred forty million dollars, with it possibly taking the animated opening weekend record from Finding Dory (2016). Finally, after scoring a Thursday night record of eighteen and a half million dollars, estimates rose to one hundred fifty million dollars, and even as much as one hundred eighty million dollars.
  • After Violet's outburst about the memory wipe on her boyfriend, Dash remarks "Is she having adolescence?" The original actor for Dash had to be replaced due to a voice change from puberty.
  • During the scene when Helen (Holly Hunter) is in her hotel room and on the phone with Bob (Craig T. Nelson), there is an abstract painting hanging on the wall behind Helen. It features five swatches of red on a light background. Each swatch forms a shape with a likeness of the five Parr family members. The four representing Bob, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack are positioned on the left side of the painting, and the final swatch, representing Helen, alone on the right. This subtly emphasizes her separation from her family.
  • The fourth Pixar movie to feature the full Walt Disney Pictures opening logo as a closing logo, after Finding Dory (2016), Cars 3 (2017), and Coco (2017).
  • The second Pixar movie to feature a variant version of the Walt Disney Pictures logo, after Coco (2017).
  • As the Parrs enter their new home, Winston comments he had obtained it from "an eccentric billionaire who wanted to enter and leave his home unnoticed." This could be a reference to Bruce Wayne, aka Batman.
  • Sarah Vowell, who voiced the daughter Violet, is now older than Holly Hunter was in The Incredibles (2004). Vowell was thirty-four at the time The Incredibles (2004) was released, while Hunter was forty-six. At the time this movie was released, Vowell was forty-eight and Hunter was sixty.
  • When DEVTech is first revealed on-screen, the sky looks similar to how the Gotham sky is portrayed and shown in most modern Batman movies, and if you look to the left of the tall tower, you can see a faint Bat Signal formed in the clouds.
  • The superhero Helectrix resembles Dean from The Iron Giant (1999), another movie directed by Brad Bird.
  • Scored a domestic opening weekend of one hundred eighty million dollars, besting Finding Dory (2016)'s one hundred thirty-five million dollars to have the highest grossing domestic opening weekend for an animated movie. It also opened worldwide to two hundred thirty-one million dollars, besting Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)'s two hundred eighteen million dollars to have the highest grossing worldwide opening weekend for an animated film.
  • The first full-length Disney animated feature film to feature very mild bad language ("Hell", "damn") since The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996). It is also the first Pixar Animation Studios film since Cars (2006) to feature such language (in that film, Lightning McQueen used the term "hillbilly hell".)
  • The credits show scenes from the movie as stylized art, but one scene is not in the movie: a helicopter using the hydrofoil's helipad.
  • The model number listed on the hover car train is A113, a common Pixar easter egg.
  • The number shown when Winston is talking via speakerphone has a 510 area code. Pixar Studios are in Emeryville, California, which has the 510 area code.
  • In addition to an episode of Jonny Quest (1964) being seen later in the film, the word "Quest" in the same style as the Jonny Quest logo can be seen on one of the buildings behind Elastigirl when she is on the rooftop searching for Screenslaver.
  • This movie broke records instantly upon its release, stealing the place of biggest opening weekend for an animated movie from former place-holder Finding Dory (2016), besting its one hundred thirty-five million dollars with the new record of one hundred eighty million dollars. This movie also had the eighth biggest domestic opening weekend of all time, and the biggest opening for a PG-rated film.
  • Incredibles 2 (2018) opens the same way as Jack-Jack Attack (2005), with Rick Dicker interviewing an acquaintance of the Parr family, and the opening scene ends in a similar way to the short, with Tony getting his memories wiped.
  • Made more money domestically in one weekend (one hundred eighty million dollars) than Pixar's previous summer release Cars 3 (2017) earned in its entire release of twenty weeks (one hundred fifty-three million dollars).
  • When Mr. Incredible is drinking coffee while learning Dash's math homework, he is drinking from an Insuricare coffee mug (same company for which he worked in The Incredibles (2004)).
  • Dash is seen eating Sugar Bombs, the chocolate frosted version of which is the favorite cereal of another hyperactive blonde, Calvin of "Calvin and Hobbes" fame.
  • A possible new character in Toy Story 4 (2019) appears in one of the scenes as a likely teaser to Pixar's next movie.
  • The first Pixar sequel to have a human protagonist.
  • Bob Parr is 6 foot 7 inches, which is three and a half inches taller than his voice actor Craig T. Nelson (who's 6 foot 3-1/2 inches) and three hundred fifty pounds.
  • The first time Bob goes to tuck in Jack-Jack, the crib is painted with an image of a seal balancing Pixar's famous Easter Egg ball from Luxo, Jr. (1986).
  • The second Pixar movie to show death in a flashback after Coco (2017).
  • The third Pixar film to feature a variant version of Pixar Animation Studios logo, after WALL?E (2008) and Coco (2017).
  • Several scenes involving the Screenslaver include rapidly flashing lights, which raised concerns for potential seizures. As a result, many theaters began showing warnings for viewers who were susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy. The U.K. version on general release removed the warnings, although preview screenings in June (including for Cineworld Unlimited subscribers) used the original version. It was only re-edited overseas after public outcry from American viewers, who saw it a month earlier on June 15, instead of July 13.
  • The house loaned to the Parrs, was said to have been owned by an eccentric billionaire who didn't like to be seen coming and going, and has many secret entrances and exists. This is a nod to Batman, and maybe a hint to a Batman-type hero in the Incredibles universe.
  • In one scene, while Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) is trying to help Dash with his homework, he can be seen wrangling with "New Math", describing it as making no sense at all, and exclaiming "This is Math! Why would they change Math?" New Math was a brief, dramatic change in the way mathematics was taught in American grade schools during the 1960s (the approximate time frame of the Incredibles universe) which was highly criticized and quickly fell out of favor. The relevance of this joke evolves from the frustration modern parents (and students) occasionally experience with "Common Core" mathematics.
  • The eleventh Pixar movie to be produced in 2.35:1, after A Bug's Life (1998), The Incredibles (2004), Cars (2006), Ratatouille (2007), WALL?E (2008), Cars 2 (2011), Brave (2012), The Good Dinosaur (2015), Cars 3 (2017), and Coco (2017).
  • Being directed by Brad Bird just like the first movie, The Incredibles is so far the only franchise where both movies are directed by the same director.
  • The third Pixar movie to have cuss words. "Cars" 2006 used the word "Hillbilly Hell". "Ratatouille" 2007 used the word "Hell". Although this is the first time it used the words "Damn" and "Crap"
  • When having a supper, Dash Parr expresses his will to fight the bad guys and uses a phrase overheard on TV - "It defines who I am". The phrase is a slightly modified version of Batman's quote from Batman Begins (2005) - "[It's not who I am underneath... but] what I do... that defines me."
  • As of September 2, 2018, its eightieth day of release, it is the seventeenth highest grossing movie, and Pixar's highest grossing movie, with just over 1.2 billion dollars worldwide. This also makes it the second-highest grossing animated movie of all time, right under Frozen (2013).
  • One possible reason as to why this film was so successful at the box office is because prior to this films release, animated films released in 2018 weren't doing particularly well at the box office. Only three animated films were released in 2018 before this movie: Early Man (2018), Sherlock Gnomes (2018), and Isle of Dogs (2018), and none of them became major hits by any means. The closest any of them got to $100 million worldwide was Sherlock Gnomes at $88 million. By the time Incredibles 2 (2018) opened, Early Man and Sherlock Gnomes were long gone from theatres while Isle of Dogs was making little money in the theaters it was still showing in. Incredibles 2 then effortlessly outperformed all of them when it opened to over $180 million domestically, the 8th best domestic opening ever, and nearly $236 million worldwide, more than all three previous animated releases combined, and has only made more money since.
  • The mobile over Jack-Jack's crib features the abstract character shapes from Inside Out (2015).
  • At the end of Poltergeist (1982), Steven Freeling (Craig T. Nelson) and his family are forced to stay at a motel after their house is destroyed. At the start of this movie, Bob Parr (Craig T. Nelson) and his family are seen living in a motel after their house is destroyed.
  • First time a non-fictional person is mentioned by name in a Pixar movie (Edna Mode mentions Mozart).
  • When Elastigirl is jumping from building to building to find where Screenslaver is broadcasting from is a nod to the video game Batman: Arkham City (2011) in which Batman does the same thing especially during the Victor Zzasz side missions where he has to answer payphones to prevent him from killing his victims.
  • Voyd is somewhat similar to the character Blink from The Uncanny X-Men.
  • Voyd's name is a clear reference to the word "void", referencing her powers.
  • Unlike most women in the film, Voyds face is very angular and masculine.
  • Although Reflux heaves hot lava, his name was originally "G.E.R.D." because the technical term for acid reflux is GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease, abbreviated G.E.R.D. His name was later changed to Reflux since G.E.R.D. was a little too "on the nose".
  • According to concept designs, Krushauer's name was originally spelled with a "C".
  • Screenslaver is a play on the words "screensaver" and "slave".
  • Evelyns role is hinted, when Winston states their father would still be alive had supers been legal, and Evelyn briefly argues their father could've gotten to the safe room. It's implied they've argued on this repeatedly.
  • Evelyn's character model was not created until another super named Shellac was cut from the film, which is presumed that she would have used some kind of resin coating to encase criminals.
  • The raccoon's name, Rocky, was revealed from the song that plays during his fight with Jack-Jack, titled "Rocky vs. Jack-Jack", on this movie's soundtrack. In the movie, his name goes unmentioned.
  • Henrietta Selicks name is a play on Henry Selick, director of The Nightmare Before Christmas, and James and the Giant Peach.
  • It was planned for Jack-Jack to melt as part of his shape-shifting powers in The Incredibles (2004), but this idea wasn't used. It can be assumed that this was due to technical limitations at the time, or the fact that it would have seemed too disturbing for younger viewers at the time. This limitation appears to have been corrected for this movie, as seen during his fight against the raccoon.
  • On July 22, 2018, this movie entered the Top 50 Highest Grossing Films in the number forty-five spot with nine hundred forty million dollars worldwide. When it entered, it edged out Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005). Something similar happened three years prior on October 11, 2015, where Inside Out (2015) edged out Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004) while entering the Top 50 Highest Grossing Films in the number forty-eight spot with eight hundred eighteen million dollars worldwide.
  • Tony received an updated appearance in this movie, appearing younger, slimmer, and darker-haired.
  • In many of the scenes in which they appear, Evelyn is shown in the background, often slightly out of focus, foreshadowing her later reveal as the chessmaster working behind the scenes.
  • The Outer Limits (1963) opening ("do not adjust your set") Bob watches on television foreshadows the Screenslaver's M.O.
  • Numerous hints that Evelyn is the main antagonist, when Winston and Evelyn's past is revealed there are indications that she harbors negative feelings towards superheroes. Evelyn tells Helen, "I'm the genius behind the genius." Evelyn is often seen with unkempt hair and exhausted eye bags, suggesting that she's been busy with other things when she's not working with Helen and her brother. Screenslaver gives a monologue condemning people's addiction to letting entertainment do things for them rather than taking the effort to experience them themselves, relying on simulations. Evelyn, the real Screenslaver, states that people want ease above all else, even quality (which echoes Screenslaver's point on a broader level) right before she attacks and hypnotizes Elastigirl. Also, the Screenslaver who made the speech is himself a simulated villain, and the real Screenslaver mostly acts by manipulating people through TV screens. After Screenslaver is unmasked and arrested, the guy asks "What did you do to me?" The police assume he's just trying to justify that society did this to him. But rather, it hints that this kid is just a pawn in the real mastermind's plans.
  • Rick Dicker's interview with Tony Rydinger echoes the interview with Kari in Jack-Jack Attack (2005) right down to both Kari and Tony expressing a desire to forget the whole thing.
  • When Lucius extends Winston's invitation to meet him to Bob and Helen, he comments, "Wear the old suits. I've got a feeling he's nostalgic."
  • Helen accepts her mission by calling Winston and stating, "This is Elastigirl. I'm in." similar to Bob's "This is Mr. Incredible. I'm in." to Mirage in The Incredibles (2004).
  • While not as foreboding compared to the first film, the scene where Helen goes to work for the first time echoes Bob's second trip to Nomanisan Island, but with their roles switched. Helen is a little dismissive in response to Bob's prodding, too focused on work ahead. Bob tries to sound optimistic in an effort to convince himself that everything is still okay. The scene even ends on the same note: as Helen drives off, Bob places his hand on his chin and tilts his head a little wistfully, likely wondering if everything really is okay, as he watches her leave.
  • Violet going for ice cream invisible in normal clothes calls back to the scene from the first movie where she goes invisible in normal clothes to hide from Tony Rydinger.
  • The sequence from The Incredibles (2004), in which Edna Marie "E" Mode unlocks her workroom is reenacted, but this time with Jack-Jack using the biometric scanners.
  • Edna Marie "E" Mode showing Mr. Incredible how Jack-Jack's suit works calls back to the scene in The Incredibles (2004), where she was showing Helen the outfit she'd designed for Jack-Jack.
  • Edna Marie "E" Mode's remark that Jack-Jack seems to like Mozart is a callback to Kari explaining in the first movie that she was going to play Mozart for Jack-Jack to make him smarter, and to her actually playing it in Jack-Jack Attack (2005).
  • The sequence where Dash wants to pull Mr. Incredible up, but Violet keeps telling him to wait, echoes the similar sequence in The Incredibles (2004) when Bob was wanting to fire the claw, but Helen wanted to wait for a closer shot.
  • Violet reintroducing herself to Tony Rydinger at the end of the movie echoes the moment from the end of the first movie in which she introduced herself to him for the first time.
  • At the end of the movie, the family wagon transforms into the new-and-improved family-sized Incredibile just as Bob's sedan did in The Incredibles (2004).
  • In The Incredibles (2004), Mr. Incredible asks why Frozone can't put out the fire with his ice powers, and the badly-dehydrated Frozone snarks at Bob "What's your excuse? Run out of muscle?" In this movie, when Mr. Incredible asks Krushhauer why he can't use his telekinesis to clear away wreckage blocking a hallway, Krushhauer replies that to uncrush something is like asking Mr. Incredible to "unpunch" something.
  • Fironic, one of the heroes who knew the Deavors' father, was the completely unseen superhero bystanders mistook Syndrome for in The Incredibles (2004). Gazerbeam, the other hero, was the lawyer who defended Mr. Incredible, and the body found in the cave on Nomanisan, in that movie.
  • While Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl are being interrogated by the police, pictures from their interviews in The Incredibles (2004) appear. A television broadcast about Elastigirl features the interview clip of her from the beginning of The Incredibles (2004).
  • In a scene where Bob is rummaging through cartons of stuff saved from the old house, some of the items from his study in the first movie are visible, such as the jar of bullets that had bounced off of him.
  • Helen mentions that all of Robert's suits were destroyed when the jet destroyed their house, referencing Syndrome's explosive end.
  • When Violet attempts to destroy her suit to underscore her renouncement of superheroism, she can't even damage it a little. Edna Marie "E" Mode did say they were virtually indestructible when she showed them to Helen.
  • The ending credits begin the same way visually as they did in The Incredibles (2004), with shots of the family members doing various things, before changing to reflect the events of the second movie instead of the first. The end credits include the "original" versions of the hero themes that the heroes sing along with Winston Deavor when they meet him.
  • After seeing Helen's new costume, Bob teasingly notes Helen will have to explain to Edna why she's using a costume by another designer. Bob ends up taking the brunt of Edna's anger since Helen doesn't meet with her in this film.
  • Elastigirl is among the hypnotized supers who gives a televised speech to the world about how supers have become bitter whilst in hiding. It contrasts sharply with the Helen we've come to know from the first movie, the one who didn't become embittered, but instead made the most of her normal life (by raising a family).
  • Tony Rydinger's memory being erased is shown to the audience in the first scene, but neither Bob nor Violet are informed of this. Initially, Violet thinks that Tony has either stood her up or forgotten their date, then thinks he is pretending to not know her because he thinks she's a freak, then Bob suggests that he's only pretending to not know her because he's afraid that Rick will erase his memory if he doesn't, leading to Violet realising the truth.
  • The Japanese supers during the climax are a nod to Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.
  • While trying to help Dash with his homework, Bob's brief tirade about New Math sounds like it could just as well be about the Common Core Math Standards adopted by U.S. public schools in the early 21st century.
  • When Screenslaver gives a chilling monologue to the people about how they are so content to only watch things from the comfort of their TVs. What makes it scary is, it can also apply to the people of our times addicted to their phones and tablets, and the people sitting in the comfort of their theater watching Elastigirl find the Screenslaver. Goes even further when the Screenslaver lambasts how superheroes are conveniently packaged and portrayed to allow this, drawing to mind the many superhero films produced by Hollywood, including Disney's own Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • On the surface, Winston Deavor seems very similar to Bob Odenkirk's famous character Saul Goodman. Both are smooth-talking, PR-oriented white collar men who have a sleazy vibe. The difference is Saul is an amoral attorney furthering his criminal activities, while Winston turns out to be a genuinely nice guy who wants to help people.
  • The episode of Jonny Quest (1964) that Dash is watching at the Parrs' new house is the climax of The Robot Spy (1964).
  • Bob taking care of Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack while Helen is away is similar to Mr. Mom (1983).
  • Helen as Elastigirl preventing the train from crashing is similar to Spider-Man 2 (2004).
  • A government device with a red beam of light is used to erase memories (Tony's memories of seeing or remembering Violet as a Super) is similar to Men in Black (1997).
  • Jack-Jack has two powers associated with the X-Men: intangibility (Kitty Pryde/Shadow cat) and self-duplication (James Madrox/Multiple Man).
  • At one point Bob is shown watching the opening sequence of The Outer Limits (1963) with Jack-Jack on television.
  • As the Disney Castle logo is redesigned in the style of the movie, the steam train in the normal logo was replaced with the original monorail train that operated at Disneyland.
  • Voyd's appearance and mannerisms so resemble those of Kristen Stewart, it is rumored that the character is based on her.
  • Jack-Jack, who essentially only appeared in the domestic scenes as the baby in the first movie, is now much more prominent and integral to the plot. While he's still a secondary character by virtue of being a baby, one of the plot threads of the movie is about his family dealing with his Combo Platter Powers. Tony Rydinger is now a prominent character in Violet's story arc. In the first film, he had around two scenes total. To a much lesser extent, the Underminer gets his chance to shine after a brief, last minute introduction at the end of the first film. He's still a bit character, but at least we get to see him in action (he even manages to successfully rob the bank and make a clean escape).
  • Voyd's super power called for some technical intervention to make it easier to achieve in layout animation. Pixar wrote software to duplicate characters and connect multiple cameras, so that when one looked through one side of the void hole, one would see what a camera at another location sees. If a character stuck her arm through the hole on one side, they needed to place a duplicate of the character's arm on the other side.
  • Making Reflux appealing was a huge challenge until artists turned to frogs for inspiration. According to Art Director Matt Notle, the idea of a frog made the character appealing and funny, even though his super power seems repulsive at first.
  • Came out the Friday before Father's Day, which is fitting, since a big part of the movie is Bob's trying to be a more effective father.
  • In the Brazilian dub, siblings Winston and Evelyn Deavor are voiced by Otaviano Costa and Fl?via Alessandra, who are married in real-life.
  • Galbaki, name-dropped as a rival designer by Edna Marie "E" Mode, was originally going to appear as a character, specifically a foil to Edna. Galbaki would essentially be an anti-Mode: His costumes would showcase his designs rather than being designed for the needs of the hero wearing them. In early concept art, his costume for Elastigirl would even have violated Edna's "No Capes" rule.
  • Winston was going to have a scene confronting criminals, which made it far enough for Bob Odenkirk to have recorded the lines, before being dropped.
  • By the time this film came out in theaters, there were warning labels throughout every movie theater in various states because of the scenes with the flashing lights and many people were worried that younger viewers who are watching the movie would be too sensitive with the light. The flashing lights are shown when Elastigirl confronts Screenslaver.
  • At the end of the movie, you can see the bank called Megalopolis Credit Union (abbreviated "MCU"). MCU also stands for "Marvel Cinematic Universe", which Disney owns.
  • Early into production, Evelyn was originally going to be an electric based super villain named Shelectric. This idea was scrapped and instead turned into Evelyn. This allowed Nelson to be turned into He-Lectrix.
  • The third Pixar movie to gross over one billion dollars worldwide, after Toy Story 3 (2010) and Finding Dory (2016). This makes Pixar the animation studio with the most billion dollar hits, breaking the three way tie between it, Disney, and Illumination, the latter two only have two billion dollar hits.
  • On July 31, 2018, its forty-sixth day in release, this movie had earned one billion dollars worldwide. This makes it the fourth movie of 2018, the seventh animated movie, the third Pixar movie, and the thirty-sixth in general to reach the milestone. It also reached the milestone the fastest of any animated movie, besting Minions (2015), which reached it in forty-nine days.
  • The seventh animated movie to gross one billion dollars at the worldwide box-office, and the thirty-sixth movie overall to do so.
  • On July 30, its forty-sixth day of release, this movie became the fastest animated movie to surpass one billion dollars worldwide, it's one of seven animated movies to do so, and the thirty-sixth movie overall. This also means that Pixar is the first animation studio to have three movies that grossed over one billion dollars after Toy Story 3 (2010) and Finding Dory (2016).
  • One of the tracks on the OST has the title "Looks Like I Picked the Wrong Week to Quit Oxygen", a reference to Airplane! (1980).
  • After Screenslaver is unmasked and arrested, the guy asks "What did you do to me?" The police assume he's just trying to justify that society did this to him. But rather, it hints that this kid is just a pawn in the real mastermind's plans.
  • Kari the babysitter and her parents were supposed to get a cameo appearance in the opening, but Writer and Director Brad Bird dropped it because he thought it didn't fit the movie.
  • The sixteenth Disney animated movie of the 2010s to be rated PG by the MPAA, after Tangled (2010), Mars Needs Moms (2011), Brave (2012), Frankenweenie (2012), Wreck-It Ralph (2012), Planes (2013), Frozen (2013), Planes: Fire & Rescue (2014), Big Hero 6 (2014), Inside Out (2015), The Good Dinosaur (2015), Zootopia (2016), Finding Dory (2016), Moana (2016), and Coco (2017).
  • It's unknown if the stylized credits sequence can be considered canon, and if it is indeed, it's unknown if Jack-Jack got Rocky burned to death, but it's likely that Bob appeared to save Rocky from Jack-Jack's roguery since he did the first time.
  • Though their enmity is clear, Rocky and Jack-Jack are paired as if they are friends in some merchandise.
  • Helen tells Bob that she used to have not only a bike (The "Elasticycle") during the Glory Days, she also had a mohawk. Bob was unaware of it, which leads to Helen reassuring him, "You didn't miss anything".
  • Helen/Elastigirl is the fourth female protagonist in a Pixar movie after Merida in Brave (2012), Joy in Inside Out (2015), and Dory in Finding Dory (2016), she is also the fifth human protagonist in a Pixar movie after her husband in The Incredibles (2004), Carl Fredricksen in Up (2009), Merida in Brave (2012), and Miguel Rivera in Coco (2017).
  • Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, and Jere Burns appeared on Breaking Bad (2008).
  • The second Pixar sequel to be rated PG. The first was Finding Dory (2016).
  • The Italian dubber for Voyd is Bebe Vio, the Italian Paralympics fencer in the amputee specialty.
  • Disney's third animated sequel movie to be rated PG by the MPAA, after Planes: Fire & Rescue (2014) and Finding Dory (2016).
  • Bud Luckey passed away from natural causes on February 24, 2018 at the age of 83, and Incredibles 2 was dedicated to his memory, as is Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018), where he designed characters on that film.
  • As of 2018, this is the only franchise to not have a consistent time gap The Incredibles (2004-Present), all of the others such as Toy Story (1995-2019), Cars (2006-2017) and Finding Nemo (2003-2016) had consistent time gaps.
  • The room Helen Parr goes in too look for clues in the video is room number A113 the class number at Cal Arts Tech.
  • The first animated film to make 500, then 600, million dollars at the U.S. box office.
  • The more prevalent Johnny Quest influences seen in The Incredibles 2 was also seen in the original with the Omnidroid and it's delivery vehicle which is very similar to Dr. Zin's spider robot and it's delivery vehicle from the episode The Robot Spy.
  • The motel room the Parrs stay in early in the movie is number 208, the same number as the motel room the Freeling family (also with Craig T. Nelson) flees to at the end of Poltergeist (1982)
  • In a scene about an hour into the movie, there is a battle between Elastigirl and Screenslaver, encased in a room of pure flashing, nearly strobe lights. This scene was subject to blame for multiple seizure and epilepsy warnings for those who are photosensitive. Since the many cases of seizures during the movie and many unsatisfied customers who had to walk out of the theatre, the HD copies later distributed online severely toned down the intensity of those lights.
  • First time in the history of both Disney and Pixar that the animated logos at the beginning of the movie are adjusted to blend with the movie's theme. Here, both the animations have been done in a red theme with the movie theme music playing in the background instead of their standard tunes.
  • As of November 2018 - Grossing more than 1.2 billion USD in the worldwide box office, Incredibles 2 is Pixar's top grossing film and also the number 1 bestselling animated film of all time. Collectively among all movie genres in the box office charts, Incredibles 2 stands at the 15th spot, surpassing its first franchise and all other Pixar movies.

Spoilers

  • According to John Lasseter, this movie "starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on", making it the first follow-up movie of Pixar's to do so.
  • Possibly out of respect of Elizabeth Pe?a's death in October 2014, Mirage makes no appearance in this movie.
  • This was the second Pixar film to have a female main antagonist, after Finding Nemo (2003).
  • Evelyn Deavor is the sixth character in a Pixar movie to be revealed as the main antagonist in a surprising plot twist, where she may not seem like a villain for a majority of the movie until her true colors are shown during the climax. She is also the third female character in an animated Disney movie to be revealed as such.
  • Evelyn Deavor is similar to the character Robert Callaghan from Big Hero 6 (2014). Both are the main villains of their respective movies, who seemed nice at first, and are later revealed to be the ones in the mysterious villainous identity (the Screenslaver and Yokai respectively), and want to get back at someone (Evelyn with supers in indirectly being related in the death of her parents, and Callaghan's competitor Krei, for the disappearance of his daughter).
  • Evelyn Deavor's name is a pun on "evil endeavor", foreshadowing her villainous side.
  • The micro cameras in the supers' suits are similar to the body cams employed by American police.
  • When Helen is suffering from hypoxia, there is a reference to the Smarter Everyday video about hypoxia. Helen says "I don't want to die" in the same manner and facial expression as Destin does in his video. https://youtu.be/kUfF2MTnqAw
  • Evelyn Deavor is voiced by Catherine Keener, who also played Missy Armitage in Get Out (2017). These two characters are similar in that both have the ability to hypnotize others.
  • This is the second time that Catherine Keener has portrayed an antagonist, following Get Out (2017). Both characters that she portrayed from the two films share one villainous character trait: perform hypnotism on unwilling and unsuspecting victims.
  • The Underminer (John Ratzenberger) gets away and is never caught during this movie, and is seen again in a post credit scene showing that he's still at large.
  • Overall, Jack-Jack has seventeen superpowers, the most for any superhero in the movie. They are the following: Multiplication: Jack-Jack can make multiple copies of himself. Demon transformation: Jack-Jack turns himself into a purple demon-looking thing. This power appears to be triggered when he gets angry, especially when he doesn't get a cookie. Jack-Jack also used this power in The Incredibles (2004). Fire: Jack-Jack bursts into flames, Human Torch-style. He can seemingly still function normally in this state, it's just that everything he touches instantly catches fire. Also seen in The Incredibles (2004). Laser eyes: green laser beams shoot from his eyes. The lasers can be steady beams, or he can shoot them pulse-style. Growth: Jack-Jack grows many feet taller and wider seemingly at will. He also appears to become a lot stronger in this state. Dimension hopping: Jack-Jack can traverse through different dimensions. When in the other dimensions (it's implied that, in the movie, there are more than one to which he travels), people in his own dimension can still hear him. Carbon-copy features (metamorphosis): A few minutes after meeting Edna Marie "E" Mode, Jack-Jack transforms his facial features to look like hers. He even replicates her hair. Super strength: Jack-Jack tussles with and kicks a raccoon clear across his backyard as a demonstration of his strength. He also tosses a few lawn chairs around one-handed as if they were small toys. Invulnerability: Despite wrestling for several minutes with a raccoon who has razor-sharp claws, Jack-Jack doesn't sustain so much as a scratch. Floating: Jack-Jack can seemingly make himself weightless and kind of floats around uncontrollably. It's not really flight, more just a zero gravity float. Telekinesis: On at least two occasions, Jack-Jack demonstrates limited telekinesis: once when fighting with the raccoon, and once on the boat when he takes Elastigirl's goggles off without touching them. Sneeze-induced flight: At least twice, the force of Jack-Jack's sneeze propels him into the air like a rocket. Luckily, he usually uses his ability to walk through walls before hitting the ceiling. Electricity emission: It only occurs once in the movie, when Bob Parr discovers that Jack-Jack has superpowers following his son's battle with the raccoon. Walking through walls (and glass): It's not clear if Jack-Jack becomes intangible to pass through walls, or if he changes the physical properties of the wall so he can walk through it. Either way, he makes it work. Turn to lead: Jack-Jack only uses this superpower in his battle with Syndrome near the end of The Incredibles (2004) (note that when he changed to a metallic form, he and Syndrome plummeted suddenly, indicating a sudden and extreme weight). He never at once uses it in this movie. It is, nevertheless, assumed that he still retains this superpower. Blobbing: During the fight with the raccoon, Jack-Jack turns himself into a shapeless, gelatinous blob that's tough for the animal to fight. Mimicry: After spending a few days with Edna Marie "E" Mode, Jack-Jack can accurately mimic her walking gait and facial expressions. This is different from his metamorphosis power.
  • When the "Incredibile" escapes with the children and heads for the boat, the sound effect is the jet engine of the Batmobile from Batman (1966) television series.
  • When Edna Marie "E" Mode puts Jack-Jack in her chamber to show Bob the suit she designed for him, she mentions that Mozart stimulates his powers. This is a nod to the Pixar short Jack-Jack Attack (2005) where the babysitter Kari is taking care of Jack-Jack while the Parr family is on Nomanisan Island in The Incredibles (2004). Kari plays Mozart for Jack-Jack, and it instantly triggers his powers for the first time in his life.
  • Each of Evelyn's outfits is a varied pattern of black and white (alternating vertical bars, white top with black speckles and black pants with white speckles) both hinting at the dichotomy between good (Winston) and evil (Evelyn), as well as evoking imagery of television static. Screenslaver would often use signal static and a black and white static pattern to hypnotize her victims.
  • Evelyn Deavor is the second female antagonist for a Pixar movie. The first was Darla in Finding Nemo (2003).
  • Craig T. Nelson played a father in this movie and Poltergeist (1982) who loses a child in another dimension inside of his house.
  • The 2nd Pixar movie to have more than one main antagonist after Monsters Inc (2001). Which those 2 in this film were The Underminer and The Screenslaver. In Monsters Inc (2001), they were Randall Boggs and Henry J. Waternoose.
  • During two scenes of Elastigirl's exploits, we see her mimicking the gimmicks used by Fantastic Four (2005). The first time when she opens the locks to the Screenslaver's apartment hideout by squeezing her hand under the door. The second was when the Screenslaver trapped Elastigirl in a near freezing chamber to dampen her rubbery powers and threaten to "break" her. Both are likely homages to The Incredibles' core characters being inspired by Marvel's First Family, The Fantastic Four.
  • Apart from a flashback showing the Deavors' parents death, no one else dies in this movie.
  • The name of the movie that Violet goes to on her date is "Dementia 113". On one marquee, it's listed as DEMENTIA 113, with the A the same color as the following numbers 113, making it look like A113. A113 is a common Pixar Easter egg, referring to a classroom in the California Institute of the Arts, where Brad Bird studied. Dementia 13 (1963) was the directorial debut of Francis Ford Coppola.
  • Like The Incredibles (2004), this movie ends with a cliffhanger. When a car full of armed criminals drives by, Violet drops Tony off at the movie theater and says they'll be back before previews are over. When he's out of sight, the Parrs suit up, their car turns into a new red Incredimobile, and they chase after them.
  • The Incredibles family members display several superpowers similar to Marvel's The Fantastic Four: Bob has enormous strength like the Thing; Helen is elastic like Mr Fantastic; Violet can become invisible like Invisible Woman, and Jack-Jack can burst into flames like Human Torch (Dash is an exception, displaying incredible speed like X-Men's Quicksilver, but the idea of an impetuous boy with a movement power is keeping with the remaining FF member, Johnny Storm aka The Human Torch who can fly). Several of the other superheroes seen later in the film also display powers seen in the Marvel comics: Krushauer crushes metals, like Magneto from the X-Men; He-lectrix can summon electricity, like Electro from Spider-Man; Brick is an unstoppable force who resembles Juggernaut from X-Men; Screech the Owlman possesses a high-pitched screech similar to the sonic scream of X-Men's Banshee, and Voyd can create dimensional portals like Marvel's Doctor Strange.
  • The voice of Evelyn Deavor (Catherine Keener) previously played a villain who uses hypnosis to sway her victims in Get Out (2017).
  • Evelyn Deavor's name is a slight pun on "evil endeavor".
  • At the end of the movie, after saving the day and keeping superheros name clean, Winston Deavor says that he has a good feeling about the Superheros, which is a nod to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977) franchise. "Star Wars", and "Incredibles" are both owned by Disney.
  • Voyd is the second character in the franchise to be a fan of one of the protagonists. The first was Buddy Pine/Syndrome who was a fan of Mr. Incredible in the first movie. However, unlike Syndrome who remained evil throughout the first movie, Voyd remained good (aside from being hypnotised by Evelyn) throughout the second movie.
  • Essentially, Evelyn is the authentic Screenslaver, being the mastermind behind the scheme. Evelyn even comments on this factor, when asked by Elastigirl if she is the Screenslaver, saying she is and isn't since she never dons the costume but is the one controlling the person who does and is the one behind the messages.
  • Screenslaver/Evelyn Deavor's gimmick of using hypnotic goggles to control people was previously employed in The Incredibles comic book series by the villain Mezmerella.
  • When Winston noticed the goggles on the three main supers, he had thought that they were masks that were designed by his sister, as when he had asked Evelyn about it she played along with his question by saying that they were masks that had night-vision. Its possible that she told the second-rated supers a similar lie so she could get the goggles on them without any kind of resistance, thereby tricking the supers to place the goggles on themselves.
  • Evelyn was originally meant to have another brother named Nelson, who was originally going to be the main villain, but the character was cut because the creators would prefer a female villain. Early into production, Evelyn was originally going to be an electric based supervillain named Shelectric. This idea was scrapped and instead turned into Evelyn. This allowed Nelson to be turned into He-Lectrix.
  • The hypnotizing research and notes that Helen came across in the Screenslaver's "lair" is most likely Evelyn's. Placing her research and plans of attack there is mostly likely part of her plan, as it creates the illusion of her puppet being the "true" villain and lowers the risk of her being discovered as the puppeteer.
  • The idea of having Jack-Jack fight a racoon with his superpowers was originally pitched by Teddy Newton for The Incredibles (2004). It was dropped as there wasn't room for it, but Writer and Director Brad Bird loved the idea so much, that he resolved to use it in this movie.
  • The Underminer is one of the few Disney or Pixar villains to succeed in his goal. He manages to rob a bank and escape with all of the money and is never caught afterward. He is the second Incredibles villain (after Bomb Voyage) to not be captured by the hero and is able to get away with a crime (both instances involving bank robbery).
  • This movie calls back twice to the EL train accident that contributed to the outlawing of supers in The Incredibles (2004). First, during the Underminer chase, Frozone saves an EL train when its track is destroyed. Later, Helen's runaway hovertrain chase ends with the train nearly going off the end of its rail.
  • When an angry Elastigirl meets Mr. Incredible on Nomanisan Island, he pulls her into a kiss. A hypnotized Elastigirl pulls him into a kiss, but she does so to distract him long enough to put Screenslaver's hypnotizing glasses on him, placing him under Screenslaver's control as well.
  • Winston tells the heroes that the reason the world doesn't like superheroes is because of "perspective" (people see destruction, they see superheroes, they blame superheroes). Later, Evelyn points out that her brother has a "childish perspective", "Superheroes go away, mommy and daddy go away." Also, when Evelyn has Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone under her control, she makes them start monologuing a prepared speech about how humans are feeble.
  • The LEGO figurine of the Screenslaver has already revealed his identity as Winston Deavor. Yet in the film itself it's actually Evelyn, who brainwashed some other man as a decoy. So the LEGO set may be using a Red Herring for those who purchase it.
  • Evelyn has a remote that she uses to turn the goggles off and on, without removing them. She can also use the goggles to see through the eyes of her puppets, from her control room.
  • Elastigirl reaching under a locked door to open it from the inside, and Evelyn subjecting her to super-cold temperatures to neutralize her stretching abilities is similar to Fantastic Four (2005).
  • The Pizza Planet Truck can be seen outside the building where Elastigirl captures and rescues the fake Screenslaver. The truck likely belonged to them considering Evelyn revealed the one she set up was a pizza delivery guy.
  • In many of the scenes in which they appear, Evelyn is shown in the background, often slightly out of focus, foreshadowing her later reveal as The Screenslaver working behind the scenes. The Outer Limits (1963)'s Do Not Adjust Your Set line foreshadows the Screenslaver's M.O. When Winston and Evelyn's past is revealed there are indications that she harbors negative feelings towards superheroes. Evelyn tells Helen, "I'm the genius behind the genius." Evelyn is often seen with unkempt hair and Exhausted Eye Bags, suggesting that she's been busy with other things when she's not working with Helen and her brother. Screenslaver gives a monologue condemning people's addiction to letting entertainment do things for them rather than taking the effort to experience them themselves, relying on simulations. Evelyn, the real Screenslaver, states that people want ease above all else, even quality (which echoes Screenslaver's point on a broader level) right before she attacks and hypnotizes Elastigirl. Also, the Screenslaver who made the speech is himself a simulated villain, and the real Screenslaver mostly acts by manipulating people through television screens.
  • Screenslaver's hypnosis of the superheroes parallels Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) in which the Kung Fu masters turn into jade zombies and involuntarily fight against their friends.
  • Catherine Keener, who voiced the villian "Evelyn Deavor", who controlled people by hypnosis, also played a character in Get Out (2017), that controlled people using hypnosis.
  • During the Screenslaver's monologue, Elastigirl tracks the location of the Screenslaver, and pursues him throughout the city. This scene parallels the movie's theme, with regards to people being enslaved by screens, since the audience tends to get distracted with Elastigirl's pursuit of the Screenslaver (which is what's on the screen), thus having their attentions diverted from the real purpose of the scene, which is the delivery of the Screenslaver's monologue (wherein he states his beliefs and philosophies regarding passivity of people and their overreliance on technology and Supers).
  • The toy in Jack-Jack's crib could be the possible main antagonist of Toy Story 4 (2019).
