The theatrical release date for Incredibles 2 is just one month away and what better way to boost fan excitement than to announce that today, May 14, is officially Incredibles Day! All day, Pixar Animation Studios with the help from the filmmakers and vocal cast will be treating fans to sneak peeks, giveaways and more — via social media.
“It’s been a long wait for the next chapter in the Parr-family story,” said “Incredibles 2” producers Nicole Paradis Grindle and John Walker. “We just love that fans are so passionate about these characters and we can’t wait for everyone to see the film. Opening day is coming fast, but in the meantime, we’re excited to celebrate INCREDIBLES DAY with all of the fans.”
Today, a series of vintage toy commercials have been released (seen below), and later in the morning, in collaboration with on-demand delivery service Fooji, fans in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Philadelphia can Tweet using #Incredibles Day + 💥 for a chance to unlock exclusive giveaways, including tickets to experience “Incredibles 2” in IMAX and exclusive products and collectibles (poster of prize options is below).
