Sounds nice, but with Disney now openly out of the closet with their leftism, I'm not holding my breath for it to be anywhere NEAR as good as the original.

If by that you mean "the hero learns a lesson," then yes, I'd certainly count on it. In the first movie, Bob Parr had to learn what is really important in life and what isn't. Looks like it's Helen's turn in the sequel, though I hope at the very least her lesson is different.

But we'll see....

That isn't my take on the original. What did Bob learn that he didn't already know? At one level, the story was about how to be incredible in a mediocre world. At a second level, the story was about all the members of the family being able to express how important they are to one another. Bob didn't have to go through anything to realize how much he needed his family, although it took that turmoil to bring him to making it clear to them.

Very blatant in Act 2. Bob tells us:


BOB: This is my fault. I've been a lousy father. Blind to what I have. So obsessed with being undervalued that I undervalued all of you.

DASH: Dad?

HELEN: Shh. Don't interrupt.

BOB: So caught up in the past that I... You are my greatest adventure. And I almost missed it.



That's the theme of the whole movie right there.

At the time, I was in exactly the same emotional place as Bob, making a transition from a great military career in which I was saving the world to...a job in an insurance company.
