"Those who have been waiting for the return of the Parr family in the upcoming animated superhero sequel, "#The Incredibles 2", will be glad to know that some new information has now come to light regarding the show's story and its casting.

Next up, the team behind Frozen teased both the 21-minute holiday short Olaf's Frozen Adventure and also the full-fledged sequel titled, for now, simply Frozen 2. Samuel L. Jackson is back as Frozone and Bird's reprises his role as Edna Mode. The clip that followed featured an action-packed showdown between baby Jack Jack and a feral raccoon that revealed the full potential of the infant's burgeoning powers. In an effort to protect the household, Jack-Jack attacks the raccoon and showcases a variety of powers that include phasing through solid object, super strength, fire powers, telekinesis, and laser eyes. His trick? He can multiply. The family still doesn't think about the infant's staggering forces (play on words expected) toward the begin of the film, however judging by the scene appeared at the expo, they'll discover soon. "The technology has gotten so much better; We can get them close to what we wanted to do in the [original]". "It's like driving a brand-new auto". They also get a new high tech house full of sharp corners for Jack Jack. Luckily, Jack Jack is pretty tough. Another evocative piece of concept art depicted a living tree, complete with a huge face on its trunk - growing from a square island of earth in the middle of a small parking lot.

The sequel, which was originally due for release in 2019 but has switched release spots with Toy Story 4, is now due out next year, and will pick up right where the first movie finished, with The Underminer attacking the city.

Given that the fourth Toy Story installment won't premiere until Summer 2019, Pixar had even less footage to show during this presentation.

The most exciting announcement of the panel was a new film in the works with director Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) at the helm. One day, he heard a recording of his late father saying two words: "hi, bye". Unicorns, for example, are said to be so common that they're considered pests.

Unkrich, Anderson and co-director and writer Adrian Molina were on hand to preview the clip. However, the highlight was a performance by Benjamin Bratt of a song called "Remember Me" written by Frozen's Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Michael Giacchino (Up) is composing the score.

At this point, the cast was brought on stage - the first time they have all been together in one place.
