Well, we asked Incredibles creator, writer, and director Brad Bird about it at a press event at Pixar Animation Studios, and he was just as surprised about the date on the newspaper as we were. "I’m glad I’m talking to everybody and finding out what’s in my own movies," he laughed.
"It's '60s-influenced," he explained, "but it also has gadgets that are more advanced than [what was available in] the '60s — just like a good James Bond movie or an episode of Jonny Quest."
He also clarified that if the movie does take place specifically in the year 1962, "it’s an alternate 1962; it’s not meant to be the real world."
So, there you go, kinda. Incredibles 2 opens in theaters June 15.
