The Incredibles 2 opens on June 15, 2018.

When Friday's Pixar and Disney Animation panel at D23 kicked off, it opened with a sizzle reel containing extremely short clips from some upcoming films, and few glimpses got a bigger reaction than the title card forThe Incredibles 2.

The scene itself showed Jack-Jack fighting a raccoon when his father falls asleep in front of the TV. Lasseter, Bell and Gad shared with Frozen fans a behind-the-scenes video showcasing the filmmakers' recent research trip to Norway, Finland and Iceland. He also teased plenty of new characters. The blue character is voiced by Taraji P Henson. Yesss takes Ralph and Vanellope on a VIP tour of the web that ends up at OhMyDisney.com.

Vanellope speaks to Ariel, Elsa, Cinderella, Pocahontas, and many more, before C-3PO from Star Wars appears to remind them of an appointment. But since it's been more than a decade since they last recorded, the voice actor for Dash has since been replaced. The actresses came onstage at D23 Expo 2017, to the surprise of the thousands of fans there.

Bird points out The Incredibles is a superhero film with family at its heart, and that aspect sets the world apart.

The Incredibles 2 is going to be all about Holly Hunter's Elastigirl. That being stated, the present Incredibles 2 introduction showed that a considerable measure of new superheroes will be presented, so stay tuned for more data about these crisp appearances. Then, writer and director Brad Bird joins Lasseter to discuss the movie along with the voice of Edna... who is also Brad Bird.

Next up was Toy Story 4, and the panel revealed Josh Cooley has been upped to full director (he previously had been announced as co-directing with John Lasseter, who will remain on as a producer).

Coming Soon reports that new details, art and a featurette about Edna Mode have been released for The Incredibles 2.

Attendees saw Jack Jack light on fire, as he did in the original film. Benjamin voices Miguel's great great grandfather in the movie, Ernesto de la Cruz. The film hasn't been given a title. Then he introduced a "new film to celebrate new heights of aviation" with a clip called "Speed Test".

The untitled film follows two teenage brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him.
