After 14 years INCREDIBLES 2 is finally open for everyone to see. If you’ve been following the blog you know that I had the chance to visit Pixar Animation Studios on an all expense paid press trip back in April to learn about the creation of INCREDIBLES 2. The trip was fascinating to say the least; there is so much creative energy within the four walls that make up Pixar. Now I’m not saying you have to read everything I’ve written but I am saying you’ll appreciate the film more if you do read my coverage.

 

What can I expect to see in the INCREDIBLES 2 Blu-ray/DVD Bonus Features?

My kids and I have been having a blast watching all of the bonus features in the INCREDIBLES 2 Blu-ray/DVD bonus features! If you’re a fan of the Parr family you have to add this to your personal movie collection at home.

“Incredibles 2” is packaged and released in several different ways, offering families the flexibility to watch the movie instantly and on a variety of devices of their choosing, including Digital 4K Ultra HD, HD and SD and physically as a 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and Digital Copy), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy) and a single DVD.  Additionally, the Digital HD/SD, Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film have been modified in an effort to accommodate photosensitive viewers, however individual sensitivities may vary.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Then you’ll divide the batter into three separate bowls. After you’ve done that use food coloring to make the INCREDIBLES colors – red, black and yellow. Once you get the desired color, add each color to the doughnut pan.

While those are baking, make the glaze, take the doughnuts out of the oven when they’re done and let them completely cool. Then you’ll glaze the doughnuts by dipping them into your glaze.
