Gender Roles Are Reversed In New INCREDIBLES 2 Trailer

Pixar dropped a new trailer for Incredibles 2 Friday morning, and filmmaker Brad Bird has Craig T. Nelson creating his own superpowered version of Mr. Mom.

The 1983 film by John Hughes appears to be a significant influence on Bird’s film. Michael Keaton was the stay-at-home dad of the 80s, but Pixar will usher in a brand new style of daddy daycare this summer with Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible.

Whatch the trailer below.

About Incredibles 2
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Incredibles 2 features the voice talents of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, and Samuel L. Jackson. Bird return’s to direct the sequel.

The heroes return on June 15.
