The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world…
Brad Bird agreed to make this sequel only so long as it would be better than the original. Since the first film had been released 14 years ago a large number of superhero films and television series had been made, and Bird sought to avoid dwelling on the superhero idea, instead focusing on the family dynamic and how being superheroes played on that.
He was also able to take advantage of advances in technology to better interpret the designs of 2004. Using this new technology, however, meant that all the characters had to be created from scratch, with the studio using human-eye models for the first time, even if the eyes are larger and more stylised than in real humans.
Advance tickets will be available at the Tourist Information Office until close of business on Friday 20th September, and online until 8.00am Saturday 21st September.
