Finding Me A Family - The Incredibles - Netflix
The Incredibles is a 2004 American computer-animated superhero film
written and directed by Brad Bird, produced by Pixar Animation Studios,
released by Walt Disney Pictures, and starring the voices of Craig T.
Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, Samuel L.
Jackson, Bird, and Elizabeth Peña. The film follows the Parrs, a family
of superheroes who are forced to live a quiet suburban life while hiding
their powers. Mr. Incredible's desire to help people draws the entire
family into a confrontation with a disgruntled ex-fan, who intends to
become a superhero to the public by “combating” a killer robot of his
design, which he has used to eliminate other superheroes. Bird, who was
Pixar's first outside director, developed the film as an extension of
the 1960s comic books and spy films from his boyhood and personal family
life. He pitched the film to Pixar after the box office disappointment
of his first feature, The Iron Giant (1999), and carried over much of
its staff to develop The Incredibles. The animation team was tasked with
animating an all-human cast, which required creating new technology to
animate detailed human anatomy, clothing and realistic skin and hair.
Michael Giacchino composed the film's orchestral score. The film
premiered on October 27, 2004, at the BFI London Film Festival and had
its general release in the United States on November 5, 2004. It
performed well at the box office, grossing $633 million worldwide during
its original theatrical run. The Incredibles received widespread
approval from critics and audiences, winning two Academy Awards and the
Annie Award for Best Animated Feature. It was the first entirely
animated film to win the prestigious Hugo Award for Best Dramatic
Presentation. It is the first installment in The Incredibles film
series. A sequel, Incredibles 2, was released on June 15, 2018.

The film opened on November 5, 2004, as Pixar's first film to be rated
PG (for “action violence”). Its theatrical release was accompanied with
a Pixar short film Boundin'. The promotional campaign included an
official website with video segments, games, and printable memorabilia.
While Pixar celebrated another triumph with The Incredibles, Steve Jobs
was embroiled in a public feud with the head of its distribution
partner, The Walt Disney Company. This would eventually lead to the
ousting of Michael Eisner and Disney's acquisition of Pixar the
following year. In March 2014, Disney CEO and chairman Bob Iger
announced that the film would be reformatted and re-released in 3D. On
May 11, 2018, Disney and IMAX announced that the film would be reissued
and digitally re-mastered for IMAX theaters (alongside its sequel,
Incredibles 2) using their DMR Technology in a double feature for a one
day only, “Fan Event”, on June 13.
