Pixar Uses Arts & Culture Meme to Announce Full 'Incredibles 2' Cast

It's a mini 'Breaking Bad' reunion.

The secret identities of several new Incredibles 2 cast members have been revealed, and Disney-Pixar opted for referencing a week-old meme to do so.

Disney-Pixar announced the full voice cast for The Incredibles 2 with a series of images released on social media. These included several new cast members for the super-sequel, all in the recognizable format of Google’s Arts & Culture App.

Google’s Arts & Culture App has a selfie-scanning section that matches a user’s face with images from a library of more than 70,000 works of art. The end result is a side-by-side image with a percentage match. Disney-Pixar used the exact format to reveal the Incredibles 2 cast, because why the hell not?

The first Incredibles, released in 2004, focused on the super-powered Parr family as they emerged from a quiet suburban life to suit up and battle a supervillain. The sequel picks up with the Parr family, introducing some new characters as the family struggles with fitting into society while also wielding superpowers.

Among the newcomers to the world of the Incredibles is Bob Odenkirk voicing Winston Deavor, a rich, suave businessman that runs a telecommunications company with his sister Evelyn Deavor, as voiced by Catherine Keener. Winston Deavor is obsessed with supers and wants to rebrand them in the public’s eye, and his sister is some kind of technological genius.

Jonathan Banks — who co-stars with Bob Odenkirk in Better Call Saul — voices Rick Dicker, a government agent that helped the Parr family keep their identities a secret.

Sophia Bush voices a new super called Voyd. She’s a huge fan of Elastigirl’s and her powers allow her to create voids that cause objects to disappear and reappear.

Isabella Rossellini will also voice some kind of “Ambassador.”

The cast also includes returning members of the Parr family: Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), and their children: Violet (Sarah Vowell), Dashiell (Huck Milner), and the baby Jack Jack.


The Incredibles 2 will be released on June 15, 2018.

You’ve read that, so now watch this:

Finally, there’s some legitimately good news about production on Rick and Morty Season 4. Animation has officially begun, though that also means the release date probably won’t arrive for half a year or more.

Rick and Morty’s animation supervisor Eric Bofa Nfon tweeted last Friday about a “Casual meeting,” saying in the tweet that it was his “First week back!” Nfon included the hashtag “#RaM4,” clearly referencing Rick and Morty Season 4. There’s also an Emmy award sitting on the table, no doubt because the show won an Emmy for Season 3’s “Pickle Rick” last year.

One of Spider-Man’s lesser-known enemies is hitting the big screen, which is actually kind of a problem. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, we’ll again see Tom Holland as the hero, forced to team up with Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, who audiences got their first glimpse of in a trailer released on Tuesday. Because of Mysterio’s mastery over illusions, potentially anything in the trailer could be called into question. Even returning characters like Nick Fury.

Spider-Man has a big fan in Flash Thompson. Unfortunately, Flash also makes Peter Parker’s life a living hell, and the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home really delivers on this dichotomy with a great gag that pays homage to the Flash Thompson from the Spider-Man comics.

On Tuesday, Marvel film star Tom Holland premiered the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which Peter Parker embarks on a vacation to Europe but is recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) for a very special mission.

Video game developer Epic Games structures seasonal gameplay for Fortnite: Battle Royale around the actual seasons of the year. Winter has already come, but before long Season 8 will cue spring.

Each season has around 10 official weeks of challenges with at least an extra week at the end. These many challenges offer players a chance to earn rewards throughout the season, and they carry over their rewards when the whole process restarts each season.

You’re driving alone down a dirt road, and you’re falling asleep at the wheel. Suddenly, a burst of light streaks across the sky — there’s a floating, flat shape in the air right in front of your truck, and though it soared quickly into view, it seems to have stopped completely. A beam of light shoots out from underneath the craft, and a little man with huge eyes, an enormous head, and a tiny body appears in the middle of the road. He doesn’t want to hurt you; he just wants to stick a probe in your nasal cavity.
