INCREDIBLE! I’m Headed to LA to Meet My Favorite Supers!
Disclosure: This event is sponsored by Disney. All expenses are paid in exchange for my coverage of the interviews and events. All opinions and character crushes are 100% my own.
I’m so giddy about this movie!! I feel like I’ve waiting SO long for my favorite super family to come back to the big screen and I’m headed to LA to not only screen Incredibles 2 but also attend Pixar Fest at Disneyland!
I’ll be attending Pixar Play Parade and enjoying the “Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” and I can’t wait to check out and report back to you all of the wonderful happenings, characters and treats that this time at Disneyland will include!
I can’t wait to be there in person to check it all out and share!!
Pixar Fest runs from April 13-September 3, 2018
And of course, all of this excitement centers around the fact that INCREDIBLES 2 hits theaters this month!! I can’t wait to screen this movie, the original has been a family favorite since my kids were born!
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side.
And if that’s not exciting enough, I’ll also be attending a press junket where I’ll be interviewing Craig T. Nelson (voice of “Bob Parr / Mr. Incredible”) & Holly Hunter (“Helen Parr / Elastigirl”), Samuel L. Jackson (voice of “Lucius Best / Frozone”), “Bao” Director Domee Shi & Producer Becky Neiman, Sophia Bush (voice of “Voyd”), Sarah Vowell (voice of “Violet Parr”) & Huck Milner (voice of “Dash Parr””) and Bob Odenkirk (voice of “Winston Deavor”) & Catherine Keener (“Evelyn Deavor”)

Tompkins (“Bajillion Dollar Propertie$”) and Lauren Lapkus (“Orange Is the New Black”) as city hipsters Justin and Val; Andy Daly (“Silicon Valley”) as Officer Keys; Scott Aukerman (“Comedy Bang! Bang!”) as a radio DJ; Griffin McElroy (“My Brother, My Brother and Me”) as a pepper merchant; Paul Scheer (ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat”) as supermarket manager Chip Whistler; Zeno Robinson (Marvel’s “Spider-Man”) as Cricket’s best friend, Remy; Lorraine Toussaint (“Orange Is the New Black”) as Remy’s mom; Colton Dunn (NBC’s “Superstore”) as Remy’s dad; and Anna Akana (“Youth & Consequences”) as café barista, Gloria.
