It’s been fourteen long years since The Incredibles hit theaters, but we finally have a sequel to one of the best animated movies of all time. With that in mind, Incredibles 2 has big shoes to fill and it seems to have done so masterfully. The movie’s Rotten Tomatoes score has been revealed, proving the second time’s the charm.
So far, Incredibles 2 has a Rotten Tomatoes score of 94-percent with 121 reviews. That puts it just behind the original’s 97-percent score, which is widely regarded as an animated classic and one of Pixar’s best films to date. Though the reviews are sterling, it’s unclear if the sequel will reach those lofty standards, but it is off to a very good start.
The Incredibles movies are performing similarly to how Finding Nemo and Finding Dory did. The former nabbed a near-perfect 99-percent Rotten Tomatoes score while the sequel scored a 94-percent aggregate score. Both ocean-based movies were massive hits, scoring enormous box office takes and one Best Animated Feature Film Academy Award win.
If Incredibles 2 continues its impressive performance with critics, the superhero Pixar movies will have an opportunity to improve upon the mark.
Here’s how other recent Pixar movies have fared with Rotten Tomatoes.
- Coco – 97%
- Cars 3 – 68%
- The Good Dinosaur – 68%
- Inside Out – 98%
- Brave – 78%
Incredibles 2 is in theaters June 15.
