“Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen is in the spotlight, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack, whose superpowers are emerging. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible”
“Incredibles 2” will thrust into cinemas on June 15, 2018.
Toy Story Land Opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
We’ve already covered this one in detail but the major highlight of “Incredible Summer” will be the grand opening of Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Shrinking to the size of an ‘army man’ to go off and explore the fun and adventure of Andy’s backyard, experience two new attractions: the family coaster Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers and continue to enjoy Toy Story Mania, then make a stop at the new quick-service location “Woody’s Lunch Box” that will offer up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats to ‘Toy-sized’ guests.
We will of course post news of the opening dates as and when these are confirmed.
