As Pixar gears up for the summer release of the long-awaited sequel to 2004's "The Incredibles," the animation studio has revealed some more story and character details from the follow-up, including a bunch of new cast members.
The list of new faces joining "The Incredibles 2" includes Sophia Bush, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, and Isabella Rossellini, who will all feature prominently in the plot. And to introduce them, Pixar took some inspiration from the viral Google Arts and Culture meme, pairing a picture of each actor with their onscreen alter ego.
Here's a breakdown of who's who:
Odenkirk is playing Winston Deavor, described as "big in everything he does—including his infatuation with Supers. ... He has been a supporter of Supers returning -- all he needs is a hero (or three) to help him change public perception and bring them back into the sunlight."
Keener is playing Winston's sister, Evelyn, who EW says is a "genius" and "tech-happy problem-solver and evidently the real brains behind the Deavors' successful company."
Banks is playing Rick Dicker (voiced in the original film by animator Bud Luckey), an agent with the Super Relocation Program who's responsible for keeping Supers' identities a secret. "Rick takes his job very seriously — at least until his division is shuttered, leaving the Parrs all on their own."
Bush is playing Voyd, a young Elastigirl superfan with the ability to "divert and manipulate objects around her by creating voids that allow the objects to appear and disappear, and shift in space."
Rossellini is playing the ambiguously named Ambassador, a dignified leader in favor of the legal return of the Supers.
The plot of "The Incredibles 2" centers around Elastagirl (Holly Hunter), who joins the "campaign to bring Supers back into the spotlight." Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), meanwhile, is navigating day-to-day life at home with his family, including the burgeoning superpowers of baby Jack-Jack.
The super sequel bounds into theaters on June 15.
