Tai Freligh interviews Brad Bird and John Walker about Incredibles 2…
Flickering Myth’s Tai Freligh recently attended a press event at Pixar Studios and had the chance to interview director Brad Bird and producer John Walker about this year’s hugely successful sequel Incredibles 2.
With Bird having been pretty vocal about the importance of seeing movies in the theater, we asked him whether or not he thought having a DVD version of the movie was a necessary evil, as well as any concerns that there might not have been an audience for a follow up to The Incredibles coming fourteen years after the first. And, having directed a Mission: Impossible movie, we wanted his take on Christopher McQuarrie’s Fallout film and what he thought of Superman actor Henry Cavill as a villain.
We thank director Brad Bird and producer John Walker for taking the time to speak with us. You can find Brad Bird on Twitter.
Incredibles 2 was released on October 23rd via digital, and is now available on DVD, 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and 4K UHD as of November 6th in the US and November 12th in the UK.
In Incredibles 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
