            Incredibles 2 was the long-awaited follow-up to 2004’s The Incredibles from Pixar. Written and directed again by Brad Bird, the film picked up exactly from where the first left off: with the Parr family suiting up to deal with the threat of the Underminer (John Ratzenberger). However, superheroes were still outlawed—something millionaire businessman Winston Deavor (Bob Odenkirk) wanted to change by sending Elasti-Girl (Holly Hunter) back into the field and recording her exploits. However, a new foe, Screenslaver, intended to keep that from happening using his hypnotic screens to control key people.

            Incredibles 2 was released on June 15, 2018 after trading release dates with the delayed Toy Story 4. Despite the 14 year wait between movies, the film ended up grossing over $1.2 billion; becoming the fastest animated film to do so and the highest-grossing Pixar film. Once again Kellogg’s produced a cereal based on the film as they had for the first one, however this time it was only released internationally. It featured pieces in the shape of Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile); the baby of the Parr family who had a larger role in this film. The box featured Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) and Jack-Jack on one side, while Elasti-Girl, Dash (Huck Milner) and Violet (Sarah Vowell) were on the other.
