FUN FACTS About INCREDIBLES 2 Disney Animation
BABY STEPS – For both “The Incredibles” and “Incredibles 2,” filmmakers studied real life babies to capture baby Jack-Jack’s movements.
DADDY DOLDRUMS – In “Incredibles 2,” Bob finds that keeping up with three kids, including a toddler with newly revealed super powers, is challenging — and tiring. Filmmakers strategically dressed the character to reflect his state of mind. The more tired Bob gets, the more grays and beiges he wears. And as he begins to take charge again, his wardrobe reflects his newfound confidence.
BIG FISH – The design of billionaire businessman Winston Deavor went through many iterations before filmmakers determined that the character’s determination and drive was reflective of a shark. Winston’s look took on sharp angles, and the slant of his forehead resembles a shark fin. He even wears a sharkskin suit.
PURRFECT – Winston’s super-smart sister Evelyn has the same tilt to her eyes that Winston sports, but artists chose a different animal to inspire her look. The character was often compared to a cat who is laidback, confident and comfortable wherever she goes.
RIBBIT – Artists were challenged when writer-director Brad Bird created a wannabe Super character, Reflux, whose super power is to heave hot lava. Making the character appealing was a huge challenge until artists turned to the frog for inspiration.
SIX PACK – All of the original characters were enhanced for “Incredibles 2” due to advances in technology that allowed filmmakers to achieve the looks they originally designed. Frozone’s upgrades included an admirable set of ab muscles.
WELCOME BACK – Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino returns to the world of the Incredibles with a new score for “Incredibles 2.” His memorable score for “The Incredibles” is perhaps even more memorable since it was his first-ever feature-film score.
OPEN BOOK – When production designer Ralph Eggleston and several members of the art team traveled to Palm Springs to soak up the area’s architecture for inspiration for the look of “Incredibles 2,” they were treated to a tour of several mid-century-modern homes. The team was particularly excited to see that most of the homes they visited had a familiar book on the coffee table: “The Art of The Incredibles.”
MOVING DAY – Artists designed a new home for the Parr family, whose house was destroyed at the end of the first film. But story changes called for a much bigger, much more extravagant home for the Parrs, so designers went back to the drawing board, creating a 38,000 square-foot house that features multiple rooms, unusual architectural features, over-the-top gadgets, water features and a floor that moves like a sliding puzzle.
• The home originally designed for the Parrs did ultimately make the film. In the final minutes of “Incredibles 2,” we see a key character emerge from what is now his home.
