10 More Super Movies To Check Out

The Incredibles combines a family drama with comic book adventure, exploring themes of identity, societal expectations, and family bonds. This Pixar flick is not just about superheroics but also about the familial and personal dynamics between its characters.

Well, if you want more such exciting superhero dramas and action flicks, we’ve got you covered.

So, without further wait, here are 10 movies with a similar premise to watch if you liked The Incredibles.

The Incredibles 2

The sequel to The Incredibles picks up where the first film ended, with Helen Parr (Elastigirl) called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home, accompanied of course by Violet, Dash, and baby Jack-Jack, whose superpowers are about to be discovered.

Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot. And of course, as a direct sequel to The Incredibles, it naturally has the same characters and builds upon the themes of balancing superhero duties with family life.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

The Fantastic Four meet their greatest challenge yet as the enigmatic, intergalactic herald, The Silver Surfer, comes to Earth to prepare it for destruction. As they attempt to save the planet from the menace of the Silver Surfer and planet-consuming Galactus, the Fantastic Four are forced to deal with their own internal issues while battling to save Earth.

Both films feature a family of superheroes, each with their own unique abilities, trying to find their place in the world. These two also share themes of balancing personal relationships and heroism, which many should enjoy.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

Six young ninjas Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya are tasked with defending their island home, Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.

Just like The Incredibles, both movies deal with characters who are tasked with balancing ‘normal’ lives with heroic responsibilities as heroes. The sense of humour between the two are very similar, and they also appeal to families with the brand of humour in both.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Teenager Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his reality and crosses paths with his counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat to all reality.

Similar to The Incredibles, Into the Spider-Verse focuses on the personal growth of a character who must accept their newfound powers and responsibility that comes with them. There’s also a strong underlying theme of family dynamics and relationships too, making for a wholly satisfying watch.

Big Hero 6

Robotics prodigy Hiro lives in the city of San Fransokyo. Besides his older brother, Tadashi, Hiro’s closest companion is Baymax, a robot whose sole purpose is to take care of people.

When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to Baymax and a diverse group of misfits to transform into a band of high-tech heroes.

Both this and The Incredibles center on a group of heroes coming together to solve a global crisis, focusing on themes of family, loss, and the acceptance of one’s unique abilities.

Kung Fu Panda 2

Now known as the Dragon Warrior, Po (the panda) protects the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, the Furious Five. However, a dangerous villain with a weapon so powerful it threatens the existence of kung fu itself emerges, forcing Po to confront his past and find his inner strength.

While both styles are different, the  movies share themes of personal growth, the discovery of one’s potential, and the importance of teamwork, which perhaps makes it more apt to recommend than the first film.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

The Teen Titans are a group of young superheroes who join forces to combat evil and other perils. Each possess unique abilities and, under the guidance of their leader Robin, are dedicated to protecting the world.

Like “The Incredibles”, the Teen Titans also focus on a team of superheroes with unique powers. Both involve the balancing of normal life with superhero duties, adopting a light-hearted, family-friendly tone.

Monsters VS Aliens

When California girl Susan Murphy is unwittingly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall – on her wedding no less! – and is instantly labeled a “monster” named Ginormica.

The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held with a ragtag group of Monsters. When a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth, the Monsters are called into action to save the world from imminent destruction.

Much like The Incredibles, Monsters VS Aliens centers on characters who must come to terms with their extraordinary abilities and use them for the greater good. Both have a fun, comedic tone and explore the dynamics of working as a team.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man: No Way Home

In the third installment of the MCU Spider-Man series, Peter Parker’s identity has been revealed, and he can no longer separate his normal life from the high-stakes of being a Super Hero. When he asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Both films explore the difficulty of maintaining a normal life while also being a superhero. And much like The Incredibles, this film sees numerous heroes joining together to emphasize the importance of family and friendship in overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds.

The Croods

The Croods are a prehistoric family who are challenged by an outsider to leave their cave and explore the world outside. This leads to a journey of self-discovery and growth for the family.

While not superheroes, the Croods, like the Incredibles, are a close-knit family who must work together to overcome challenges. Both movies share themes about the importance of family and stepping out of comfort zones to face new experiences.
