Audiences were treated to a work-in progress clip from next year's film where baby Jack Jack shows off his powers against a raccoon after he watches a robbery on TV with his dad.
Here's how Comicbook.com described the scene:
" Jack Jack compares the robber to a raccoon eating from the trash and now wants to attack the raccoon. He uses his powers to move through a glass door, take the chicken leg from the raccoon, put it back in the trash, and put the lid on the trash. He and the raccoon get into a wrestling match through the yard."
Attendees saw Jack Jack light on fire, as he did in the original film. This time, he started using his powers going after the raccoon and showing off laser eyes before the two started wrestling again. Ultimately, Jack Jack winds up turning the raccoon into mush.
Those aren't the only powers little Jack Jack has. According to Comicbook.com, when his father Bob went to pick him up, Jack Jack split into five different versions of himself momentarily. The scene ended with Bob being overjoyed to find out his son has superpowers like the rest of the family.
Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios chief creative officer John Lasseter told IGN earlier in the day the sequel will begin moments after the last film ended.
"It starts with the Underminer and a big old set piece," said Lasseter said. "You know that at the end of the first movie when he comes up and you see the family dressed as superheroes, well that’s where we start this movie."
Holly Hunter mentioned the sequel will also have a bit of role reversal from the original.
"Bob’s actually home with the kids this time and I’m the one out fighting crime," Hunter told the crowd of Mrs. Incredible.
But it sounds like the entire family will need to come together with some new allies to take on a villain we haven't seen yet.
A mockumentary clip was also shown regarding fan favorite, stylist Edna Mode. Fashion icons and models like Heidi Klum and Rachel Zoe were featured in a fun video which highlighted the fictional character's "work."
