Yes, I unfortunately saw it thinking they would spare a time honored classic like The Incredibles, but alas, it was the best lecture I’ve received so far on feminism and gender roles in society /s.. Unlike the first film, which is about, you know, a super family, the sequel focuses almost entirely on Mrs. Incredible and a newly introduced cast of female characters. Mr. Incredible is basically sidelined in the film, exemplifying instead the real “heroism” and struggles of being a stay-at-home father. The antagonist is predictably the sister of a sibling duo that recruits Mrs. Incredible for a campaign of vigilante superhero work to help legalize superheros again. Mrs. Incredible and whatever the bad girl’s name is have numerous conversations about the true strength of women, being the power behind the scenes, etc. The side story mostly focused on Violet’s love life, with Dash rarely getting a mention or an ounce of character development.
And of course Disney didn’t miss the opportunity to preach on the alter of inclusion, with a host of new superheros that include everything on the spectrum from a blue-haired autistic girl, to a womyn-so strong-stronger-than-Mr-Incredible, a poof and a geriatric paki.
The movie strives to be “fair”, which is unfortunately the complete antithesis of the message of the first film: not everybody is Incredible.
Honestly, I don’t know what I expected. I guess a film that was so treasured by so many people that, maybe, just for once, they would rise above the condescending lecturing of identity politics and make a film that’s just flat out enjoyable for everyone. Fucking Disney.

Let's not be juvenile and see the world through the lens of "good guys" "bad guys".

When you replace the main character, who was a member of a more or less ethnically homogenous society, to a minority, you invariably change the message of the story. This is spitting all over Bradbury’s work, one of my personal favorites.
With this change (and the doubtless many others they will inject), this will no longer be a story about how the majority will willingly engage in self-censorship to protect their insecurities, but instead about the relationship of the evil, white patriarchy (represented by Hollywood’s new favorite evil, straight, white male Michael Shannon) to that of the poor, oppressed minorities.
This is brazen and disturbing in the most darkly ironic way. It may not seem like a big deal, but there has never really been a major motion picture distributed based on this book (lesser attempts) and I fear this will become the quintessential visual edition for many years to come. Or hopefully it will fall into obscurity like the Total Recall and Robocop reboots.

There is no source. It’s a reasonable assumption. If you think the 300 year period of the Transatlantic Slave trade that moved millions of people across the ocean was carried out by 15 ships that take upwards of 6 months to cross the Atlantic, then you need help with your maths.
