It’s been a long time coming. Incredibles 2 finally hit theaters this past summer. Can you believe The Incredibles came out in 2004? That’s the year I graduated high school and it seems like ages ago. I’ve long awaited a sequel, so I was super excited when Incredibles 2 was released. Sadly, I didn’t get to see it in theaters, but guess what? If you didn’t get to see in the theater either, let’s not worry because it’s coming to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital!

That’s right! Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl are back in action in Incredibles 2. All of our favorite Supers, including Violet, Dash, newly discovered Super, baby Jack-Jack, and Frozone, are in on the fun too. Already available on Digital in HD, 4K Ultra HD, and Movies Anywhere, Incredibles 2 is a great movie for family night. And it doesn’t end there. On November 6th it will be available on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand. So many options, one must-see movie!
In Incredibles 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
In addition to the movie itself, the home releases have tons of extra features. Just take your pick!
