The Incredibles 2 will not make its official debut in theaters for quite some time.
However, thanks to the Disney D23 Expo 2015, Pixar fans and critics alike were given at least enough information to keep their appetites stimulated until another announcement is made with more details in the future.
A teaser trailer was not released for the film — such as the teasers shared at San Diego Comic-Con last month.
The Incredibles 2 still does not have a confirmed release date, something that longtime fans of the superhero Parr family can mark on their calendars. However, there were two highlights that were shared which helped to fill the void.
First, the movie poster for the Brad Bird-directed sequel was released along with the other confirmed Pixar film posters that will be released at some point in the future.

Perhaps another highlight for The Incredibles fans from the D23 Expo was that Pixar head John Lasseter did not hesitate to share some behind-the-scenes insight about the film. In an interview with Zap2It, Lasseter said just enough to keep fans informed without giving any secrets away.
“[Brad Bird] has found a really great story. We’re just starting to develop it; he’s come back now after ‘Tomorrowland.’ We’re really excited about it, but I can’t say much more about that.”
Lasseter further explained exactly why not a lot of information was revealed specifically about The Incredibles 2 during this year’s expo with the exception of the new poster.
“We didn’t talk about it today at the D23 Expo because we have another D23 Expo before that one comes out. You’ll hear about it in two years.”
Featured among the extensive list of movies that were discussed and showcased during the expo, the highly-anticipated follow-up sequel to the 2004 box-office hit, The Incredibles excited fans and critics around the world.
To further fill the void left in the minds and hearts of The Incredibles fans, Pixar fortunately shared a lot of information about quite a few other films.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the highly-anticipated fourth installment of the Toy Story franchise will focus on a love story between Woody and Bo Peep.
More information about Finding Dory, a spin-off of the 2003 film Finding Nemo, was highlighted during Pixar’s presentation at the expo along with the upcoming film, The Good Dinosaur, which will be released in November of this year.

Pixar already had a huge box-office hit earlier this year with Inside Out— a film that has generated over $639.45 million worldwide since it was released this summer.
Chances are that the studio will have another solid box-office hit with The Good Dinosaur, which means that 2015 could end up being a billion-dollar year for Pixar. With such movies as Toy Story 4, Finding Dory, and The Incredibles 2 planned for the future, it does not seem as if Pixar will slow down their streak of successful films anytime soon.
