Disney and Pixar released the first full trailer to their upcoming superhero sequel, The Incredibles 2. The trailer offers more insight to the plot of the film, with Elastigirl leaving Bob / Mr. Incredible home to take care of the kids as she goes off to fight crime. The trailer also offered a glimpse at the villain of the film, The Screen Slaver, who looks to have the ability to hypnotize.

The first film followed Bob’s return to his superhero life after it being outlawed. Bob was eventually joined by his super powered family and took down his old admirer, Syndrome. The film was a critical success, receiving two Academy Awards, including one for Best Animated Feature.

The long-awaited sequel is set to take place right after the first film, with the superhero family taking on the Underminer. Returning for the sequel is Holly Hunter as Elastigirl/Helen Parr, Craig T. Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible, Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr, Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone, and writer/director Brad Bird, who also voices Edna Mode.
