IGN caught up with Disney Pixar chief John Lasseter at D23, where he confirmed that The Incredibles 2 will pick up right where the first one ended! Here’s is what he had to say:
“It starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on,” said Lasseter, who specified that only “a minute” will have passed between films. “It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece. You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where start this movie.”
Of course this news dashes the hopes of fans who wanted an equal amount of time to have lapsed since the film’s 2004 release. If you look around the internet, you’ll see tons of fan art for adult versions of Dash, Violet and Jack Jack. Perhaps it’s this very fan anticipation that led Disney and Pixar to go in the oppossite direction?
The anticipated sequel is set to be released on June 15, 2018!

Even though Paddington Bear only made his theatrical debut three years ago, he’s been a beloved children’s character for nearly six decades, be it as the star of many books or lead several TV shows in the United Kingdom. Sadly, the man who brought Paddington to life all those years ago is no longer with us, as Michael Bond has passed away at the age of 91.
Publishing company HarperCollins broke the news earlier today that Michael Bond died at his home following a “short illness.” Bond, a member of the Order of the British Empire, is survived by his wife, Susan; two children, Karen and Anthony; and four grandchildren. HarperCollins CEO Charlie Redmayne said the following about the author:
“Michael Bond was one of the great children’s writers and at HarperCollins we are immensely fortunate to have published him and to have known him. He was a wonderful man and leaves behind one of the great literary legacies of our time.”

Now there’s a fan theory out there (cue the eyerolls) that states Peter Parker (a.k.a. Spider-Man) actually already appeared in the MCU…and in IRON MAN 2 of all places! The theory states that the little kid in the Iron Man mask during the climax at the Stark Expo is none other than Peter Parker himself! Pretty far-fetched, huh?
Anyway, here’s the scene in question, for reference:
However, here’s what Tom Holland had to say about the theory in an interview with The Huffington Post:
“It is Peter Parker,” said Holland.“It is?” we asked.
“I can confirm that, that is Peter Parker,” Holland said.
“No way, for sure?” we asked again.
“I can confirm that as of today. I literally had a conversation with Kevin Feige only 20 minutes ago. Maybe I’ve just done a big, old spoiler, but it’s out there now,” said Holland. “It’s cool. I like the idea that Peter Parker has been in the universe since the beginning.”
Do you think that little Iron Man was indeed Peter Parker? You decide!
