Jakks Pacific is the global master toy maker for The Incredibles 2, ToyNews reports. Jakks will manufacture, market and distribute the toys all over the world.
The company is also planning quite a big toy line for the movie. There will be action figures, interactive toys, playsets, accessories, pre-school toys, role-play and dress-up items. We’re also hoping that there will be a plush toy or two in the mix, too.
“We’re thrilled to extend our relationship with Disney and be named the master toy licensee for The Incredibles franchise,” said Stephen Berman, chairman and CEO at Jakks Pacific. “We are looking forward to working with the remarkable storytellers at Pixar and Disney, to bring The Incredibles characters to life through a variety of toys and other consumer products for a new generation of kids.”
The Incredibles 2 will hit the cinemas in June 2018. This gives the companies plenty of time to design, produce and ship the toys.
“We’re thrilled that the creativity and innovation seen in the film is seamlessly brought to life in the broad assortment of toys Jakks has created”, Josh Silverman, EVP of global licensing for Disney consumer products and interactive media, added.
