So the first superhero film from Pixar was indeed....incredible, but was the long-awaited sequel incredible...too? Get it? OK, I'll move on.

So the answer to the question is that it was great, but it wasn't incredible for me. I still enjoy the world-building in these films. I love all the heroes and villains in this world. The animation is beautiful. I loved the score. The voice acting was still great. I liked that this story starts off immediately after the first one finishes. There is truly a lot to love about this film. So why only four stars?

Well, I found the story a little derivative. Everything you've seen here, you've seen somewhere else. And I guess after waiting so long for this sequel, I wanted more. Is that fair? I dunno, but it is what it is. This is still so well-made that it's pretty much forgivable that the story is something we've all seen before.

Jack-Jack was amazing though!
