Will Pixar make ‘Incredibles’ Fans Wait 14 Years for a ‘Frozone’ Spin-off Movie?

Don’t call it a comeback! “Incredibles 2” skyrocketed to a record-crushing $180 million at the box office, which solidified the sequel as the best debut of all time for an animated film. Perhaps, the 14-year hiatus was worth the wait.

Both critics and fans were thrilled to see Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) and Jack-Jack (Maeve Andrews) – the youngest child in the Parr family, at the forefront, but don’t let their superpowers distract you from how bada*s Mr. Incredible’s (Craig T. Nelson) trusty pal Frozone’s (Samuel L. Jackson) appearances were in the Marvel movie.

In fact, Frozone’s dynamic role has many begging for the Black superhero to have his very own spin-off, and with the success of Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther,” that doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

Crystal Hill, a devoted fan based in Oregon, took the popular concept to the next level by creating an illustration depicting Frozone, his mysterious wife Honey (Kimberly Adair Clark), and three kids.

The 34-year-old’s artwork has since then gone viral on social media and has thousands of “Incredibles” lovers hoping her vision becomes a reality in the near future.

“The picture just started out [with me] wanting to design Honey because she [is] such an entertaining character and we didn’t get to see her in the film,” Hill told Ndlyss.

“Once I designed her, I couldn’t help [myself], [so I came up] with the kids. My thought [was] that she wasn’t super, but just a supporter. I really loved the first film and was really hoping to see Honey in the second, but, at least we got to hear her [again],” she added.

Ironically, “Incredibles 2” director Brad Bird believed Honey was more entertaining as just a voice.

Hill even developed a synopsis to pair with her design. With Pixar having greenlighted its first female-directed short (“Bao”)in the company’s history this year, it wouldn’t hurt to add another feminine touch to the animation giant’s male-dominated work culture.

Veteran Producer kickstarts $15 Million Campaign To Combat Abortion Bans

Published

It’s no secret Hollywood is outraged over anti-abortion laws being passed on the state level, especially when the industry’s new film capital Georgia followed suit.

Veteran producer Peter Chernin is turning the boycott up several notches. Chernin has reportedly launched a multi-million dollar campaign to combat the new legislation and is calling for major backing.

Chernin is partnering with ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero on the fundraising effort. The email seeks $15 million by July 1, according to Deadline.

“I am launching a campaign to contribute to the $15 million that is needed to fund the ACLU’s legal efforts to battle the national anti-abortion effort,” he wrote, according to The New York Times, which first reported the story. “We have a moral responsibility to act immediately.”

“We were conflicted about contributing to the health of an economy and a state that had declared war on the rights and freedom of its women. On one hand, if we chose the boycott route, thousands of jobs would be lost ultimately damaging workers who rely on production for livelihood, including many women. We also know that the only way to fight the massive, now national incursion on women’s rights is through a legal battle, a battle that needs funding and on the ground support via organizations like the ACLU who are powering up to overturn the law. So our choice became pretty clear we will stay in Georgia, stand shoulder to shoulder with the women of that state and the states under attack, and fight to win.”

Alabama, Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Utah have implemented the new bill in recent weeks.
