    • The Brazilian Portuguese dub has actors Otaviano Costa and Flávia Alessandra, along TV hosts Evaristo Costa (no relation to Otaviano) and Raul Gil.
    • The Italian dub has, of course, Isabella Rossellini dubbing her own character in Italian, the return of Amanda Lear as Edna, Italian TV presenter Tiberio Timperi as Chad Brentley, Italian paralympic gold medalist Bebe Vio as Voyd and Italian actress Ambra Angiolini as Evelyn Deavor.
  • Cast Incest: In the Brazilian dub, siblings Winston and Evelyn Deavor are voiced by Otaviano Costa and Flávia Alessandra, who are married in real life.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Brad Bird reprises his role as Edna Mode.
  • Dawson Casting: Michael Bird reprises his role as Tony, and impressively still sounds like a teenager despite now being in his thirties.
  • In Memoriam: The film's credits include a dedication to Bud Luckey, who died shortly before the film's release.

  • Ink-Suit Actor: Singer Usher tweeted a cameo of himself as Lucius Best's valet.
  • Meaningful Release Date: The film came out the Friday before Father's Day, which is fitting since a big part of the movie is Bob's trying to be a more effective father.
  • Missing Trailer Scene: The scene where Bob finds out Jack-Jack has powers when the baby gives him a Close-Call Haircut with his Eye Beams is not in the film, with the Internal Reveal being played differently.
  • Multiple Languages, Same Voice Actor: Isabella Rossellini as the Ambassador in English and Italian.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • Due to the former hitting puberty long since the original film, Spencer Fox was replaced by Huck Milner as the voice actor for Dash.
    • Jonathan Banks replaced Bud Luckey as Rick Dicker due to the latter's retirement from voice acting in 2014.
    • In the Brazilian dub, Luiz Feier replaced Márcio Seixas as Mr. Incredible, as he did in redubs of the original movie.

    • For the French dub, voice actor Marc Alfos voiced Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible in the first film and died in 2012. He was replaced by Gérard Lanvin.
    • For the Italian dub, the voices of both Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl were changed, from Adalberto Maria Merli and Laura Morante to Fabrizio Pucci and Giò Giò Rapattoni. The original ones were mostly actors, especially Morante, while the latter ones are professional dubbers. Rick Dicker also changed voice actors, from Pietro Biondi to Orso Maria Guerrini due to the former's death in the gap between the two movies.
    • Mostly Averted with the French Canadian dub. While Frozone's was replaced, everyone else has the same dubbers reprise their roles.
  • Playing with Character Type: On the surface, Winston Deavor seems very similar to Bob Odenkirk's most famous character Saul Goodman, being smooth talking, PR oriented white collar men who have a bit of a sleazy vibe. The difference is Saul is an Amoral Attorney who does it as a facade to further his criminal activities personal interests while Winston turns out to be a genuinely Nice Guy who wants to help people.

  • Release Date Change: Was originally set to be released in 2019, but got pushed up to 2018 instead, swapping release dates with Toy Story 4.
  • Role Reprise: With the exception of Spencer Fox (Dash) who aged out of the role and Bud Luckey (Agent Rick Dicker) who retired from acting in 2014, all of the original voice actors and actresses for the Parr family and several major supporting cast members return as their respective characters. This is impressive given how long the production gap was.
  • Sequel Gap: It came out a rather staggering fourteen years after the original (2004 — 2018). Impressively, it's an Immediate Sequel, no less (starting right off from the same scene that ended the original film).
  • Those Two Actors:
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Honey Best was going to show up in person and got as far as having concept art, but it was decided that she was better as an offscreen voice.
    • Winston was going to have a scene confronting criminals, which made it far enough for Bob Odenkirk to have recorded the lines, before being dropped.
    • Galbaki, name-dropped as a rival designer by Edna Mode, was originally going to appear as a character, specifically a Foil to Edna. Galbaki would essentially be an anti-Mode: His costumes would showcase his designs rather than being designed for the needs of the hero wearing them. In early concept art, his costume for Elastigirl would even have violated Edna's "No Capes" rule.
    • Kari the babysitter and her parents were supposed to get a cameo appearance in the film's opening, but Brad Bird dropped it because he thought it didn't fit the film.
    • Brad Bird has said that Pixar suddenly switching the release dates of this film and Toy Story 4 left him without enough time to put in all the ideas he had, but he's keeping quiet about just what he had to leave out for the moment as he still hopes to be able to put them in a third film.
