    ABOUT THE FILM:

    rediscovering the true source of their powers—in one another. Once one of the world’s top masked

    crime fighters, Bob Parr (a.k.a. Mr. Incredible) fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis. But 15 years

    later, he and his wife Helen (the former Elastigirl) have been forced to take on civilian identities and

    retreat to the suburbs. Today they, and all superheroes, live as mere mortals. Bob and Helen lead all-

    too-ordinary lives with their children, Violet and Dashiell “Dash” Parr, who go out of their way to

    appear “normal,” and new baby Jack-Jack As a clock-punching insurance man, the only thing Bob

    fights these days is boredom and a bulging waistline. Itching for action, the sidelined superhero gets his

    chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret

    assignment. Now, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, the family must come together and

    once again find the fantastic in their family life.

    I'm in! Glad to see some new Blu features in addition to all of the old extras ported. MSRP is high, as is typical with Disney, but something tells me the stores will be selling this for $24.99.


    Immediate buy for me!

    That's crazy. The Canadian price is $7 higher than even though the Canadian dollar is currently worth more than the US.

    Disney's been pretty good at pricing their Blus opening week lately, with both Alice In Wonderland and Bambi getting discounted down to $10 apiece after the DMR coupons were added in. I doubt anyone will pay more than $15 for The Incredibles when it's released.

    I eagerly await this one. Pixar sent out one of the shorts to everyone in their facebook feed, but if you haven't seen it, they also posted it everywhere..

    Thanks for that, Matt. It put a smile on my face for 39 seconds.

    As with all the other Disney and Pixar BD's, I'm there. Retail price will be well within reason first week out so no concern on that count.

    I have been waiting for this release for quite some time. As I watch each Pixar movie get released on Blu-Ray, I keep asking "Where's The Incredibles?". At long last!!! Yippee!

    I wonder if a coupon will be available soon. I have no clue why this is more expensive than most blu-rays. I would have thought Amazon would have it for $20-$25, but is instead $30. Wal-Mart and Target are also $30. Best Buy (I'm confused about this) is selling the blu-ray for $30 and $45 with no obvious differences between the two. I will be really disappointed if there is no coupon.

    I can't remember the last animated Disney title without a coupon.
