Fans had been hoping for an Incredibles 2 announcement for years, and many are already looking forward to next summer when the film finally hits theaters.

He also showed new animation tests of the family, as well as concept art that revealed that the Incredibles have a new house - and it's a super lair.

Director Brad Bird will return for The Incredibles 2 as writer and director.

He continued: "One of the unique things about The Incredibles is it's really a story of a family set in the world of superheroes". Apparently, once Elsa and Anna realize they have no holiday traditions of their own, Olaf, with the help of Sven, goes door-to-door in the village asking to borrow other family's holiday rituals.

He then presented a short scene from the film, showing Mr Incredible sleeping on his couch with son Jack-Jack on his chest.

Nelson, Hunter, Sarah Vowell (Violet), newcomer Huck Milner (taking over as Dash) and Samuel L.

The Incredibles 2 will arrive in Irish cinemas on 13 July 2018. Don't worry if you're a bit hazy: Bird gave the audience this clip featuring Kendall Jenner and Heidi Klum to remind you.
