Why is the sequel to The Incredibles taking place directly after the final scene of the first movie? Why are heroes still outlawed? Brad Bird goes into his reasons…but to be honest it doesn’t work for me. There was a whole comic book series continuing after the first movie that didn’t age the characters (which you can get away with in a cartoon) and it was really darn good. (It also had one of my favorite writers but that’s only part of the reason.) It doesn’t have to be a “five minutes later” continuation to not age the characters or to re-legalize superheroes. It may not be the story Bird wants to tell and that’s fine, but there is plenty to work with while keeping Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack as well as their parents the same ages.
