“Incredibles 2” Director: Pixar Wants to Tell Good Story, New Film about Family

MADRID – With Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” soon to be hitting movie theaters worldwide, its director sat down with EFE for an interview on Tuesday during which he said telling a good story was what was important to the animation studio.

Brad Bird, who has won Academy Awards for “The Incredibles” (2004) and “Ratatouille” (2007), said he had been trying to think of new superpowers for the family of superheroes – ones that had never been seen before in other movies – but realized he was more interested in commenting on the positions of the members within the family.

“Fathers are expected to be strong, so I made him super strong; mothers are pulled in 20 different directions at once, so I made her stretch; teenagers are insecure and defensive, so I made her have invisibility and force-fields, and 10 year old boys want to open every door and press every button, so I gave him super speed,” Bird said.

“Women run the gamut,” said Bird of the female characters in the movie, adding: “Helen (the mother) was a strong character in the first movie, and so we didn’t change anything about her, we just kind of continued that story.”

Pixar movies are created so far in advance of their releases that there was “no way for us to react to whatever’s in the headlines,” the director said. “We just want to tell a good story.”

“Incredibles 2,” which comes 14 years after the original, tells the story of a family of superheroes in which Helen Parr reprises her role of “Elastigirl” as she embarks on a new mission, while her husband Bob (“Mr. Incredible”) stays at home to look after their superhero children.

“It made for a very good story, because Bob was the one that was left at home with the children that opened up so many opportunities for humor,” producer Nicole Grindle told EFE.

Baby Jack-Jack, who the director said was inspired by his middle son, proves to be a bit of a handful for Bob when he starts to use his own superpowers in the movie.

“Incredibles 2,” which premiered in Los Angeles on June 5, will be released in movie theaters worldwide on various dates between June 13-Sept. 28.
