Samuel L. Jackson Says to Expect Frozone to Return in 'Incredibles 2'
Just after news surfaced that The Incredibles would get a 3D re-release sometime down the road, Disney and Pixar Animation revealed that The Incredibles 2 was officially in development after fans have been clamoring for a sequel for 10 years now. And while the animated sequel is surely a few years away, that doesn't mean director Brad Bird, who is already developing the script, doesn't know what's in store for our family of heroes. In fact, one of their superhero friends will return with Samuel L. Jackson recently speaking with Digital Spy and revealing that Bird has already said that Frozone will definitely be involved.
While promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier (in theaters this week), Jackson revealed:
"Every time I run into Brad [Bird, director] he always tells me Frozone is part of what's going on, so I have to believe that. I guess they could be the Incredibles without Frozone, but I think Frozone would be a wonderful addition to what's already there. I'm just looking forward to seeing what Jack-Jack turned into."
Frozone was a pretty big part of the first film, being the only friend that Bob Parr trusted to fight crime in secret after superheroes were forced into hiding (he was also best man at his wedding to Helen, aka ElastiGirl). Then he was forced into action to help The Incredibles fight Syndrome and his giant remote-controlled robot. So it would be great for Frozone (or Lucius Best) to return for some more superhero action. And much like Jackson, we're very interested to see how Jack-Jack turned out, especially if the film is set 10 years after the events of the first film. We'll keep you posted.
