We first met the family of Parrs – Bob, Helen, Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack in Disney.Pixar’s Incredibles in 2004 and they instantly won our hearts. Now they are back with Incredibles 2 and a whole new adventure that you are sure to love.
When “The Incredibles” first burst onto the big screen, Mr. Incredible’s super strength and Elastigirl’s stretchy flexibility wowed audiences around the globe—the film grossed more than $633 million worldwide, earning an Oscar® for best animated film.
In 2004, fans not only fell for the characters in “The Incredibles,” they also soaked up the mid-century world of the film. Since “Incredibles 2” picks up where the first film left off, the look is back—and thanks to advances in technology, it’s even better.
According to writer/director Brad Bird, the nostalgic look is reminiscent of a movie genre that sparked his imagination back when the first film was in development. But the genre had nothing to do with comic-book heroes. “I was inspired by spy series and spy movies,” says Bird. “James Bond, ‘Mission: Impossible,’ ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.,’ ‘Our Man Flint,’ as well as a prime-time adventure cartoon called ‘Johny Quest.’ There were a bunch of them in the sixties that had that cool, elegant flavor that we wanted to capture.”
Disney-Pixar’s ‘Incredibles 2’ releases on 22nd June.
