Who's the boss? Mom!
"The Incredibles 2," the sequel to Pixar's 2004 animated hit about a family of superheroes, is pushing Elastigirl (voiced by Holly Hunter) front and center — as seen in this first look image courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Helen Parr looks like a fierce mama bear as she and husband Bob aka Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) glare at some unseen foe.
Meanwhile, kids Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner) appear shocked. And baby Jack-Jack seems delighted by the whole spectacle.
With Mr. Incredible a stay-at-home dad taking care of Jack-Jack, it's Elastigirl's time to lead her superpowered family.
"Helen's appetite for adventure comes to the fore," Hunter told EW. "Whereas before, she was driven to become Mrs. Incredible out of necessity, where she went into it to save her husband, I think this time she really meets her own ambition head-on. The ambition of being an adventure is something that we get to explore."

"The Incredibles 2" hits theaters June 15.
