Pixar has released a new trailer for its upcoming animated superhero movie, The Incredibles 2, which shows off how the family is adjusting to their new life as superheroes and a look at the new villain.

The film is a sequel to Pixar’s 2004 film The Incredibles, which depicted a world that outlawed its population of superheroes, forcing them to go underground. Two heroes, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl settle down and have three kids: Violet, Dash, and baby Jack-Jack. But Bob Parr, Mr. Incredible’s secret identity, is bored with the minutia of life in suburbia, and moonlights as a hero, listening to the police scanner after dark. When he’s enticed back into the world of heroics with the emergence of a new supervillain named Syndrome, the whole family dons their new outfits to save the world.

This new film picks up right after the first, and we see the Parr family trying to grapple with meshing their quiet domestic life with superhuman abilities. Dash complains about vegetables at dinner while Violet has an outburst over their secret lives. We also learn that the government is welcoming superheroes back into the spotlight, and to help with that, they’re allowing Elastigirl to return. While she goes off to fight crime, Bob / Mr. Incredible is left to manage the family back at home, helping with math homework and trying to contain Jack-Jack, who has begun exhibiting a range of dangerous powers. The trailer also shows off massive action sequences similar to the ones that defined the first, as well as a new villain, who seems to be able to hypnotize anyone watching TV.

The Incredibles 2 hits theaters June 15th.
