So far there have been two Incredibles movies and zero appearances of Frozone’s wife, Honey. We’ve heard her, including when she famously asked why Frozone needs his super suit, but have yet to see her.
That was going to change in Incredibles 2 but, for several reasons, the scene got cut. However, thanks to a deleted scene we’re excited to exclusively debut, you can now see her for the first time.
The scene is included in the Incredibles 2 home release, which will be on Digital HD November 14 and in Blu-ray and 4K November 28. Check out a day in the life of Frozone and Honey below.
As explained by Brad Bird there, the scene was going to take place early in the movie but A) slowed down the action and B) ruined the mystery of what Honey looked like (Save for some rad fan art!). And, in true Pixar fashion, those are both absolutely the right decisions. The movie works better because of those two things.
Still, this is a super fun scene and we’re glad to be able to see it, even in this ultra rough form. It’s also a cool glimpse at what these films look like early in the process, when Disney and Pixar executives check them out before moving ahead with final animation.
