Incredibles 2 is inspired by James Bond and Mission Impossible, says director Brad Bird

The nostalgic look is reminiscent of a movie genre that sparked his imagination back when the first film was in development in 2004.

Incredibles 2

Audiences across the globe first met the Incredibles family of Parrs – Bob, Helen, Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack by Disney Pixar in 2004 and they instantly won our hearts. The family is now back with Incredibles 2 to take everybody on a whole new adventure that is going to be really exciting.

When The Incredibles first burst onto the big screen, Mr. Incredible’s super strength and Elastigirl’s stretchy flexibility wowed the audiences making the film gross more than $633 million worldwide. It als went on to earn itself an Oscar for the 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.
