Exclusive Incredibles 2 Interview and Drawing Class with Director Brad Bird
On Sunday 17th of June I hosted a special Incredibles 2 Interview with the film’s director Brad Bird and producers Nicole Paradis Grindle and John Walker. If that wasn’t enough, we were also treated to a lesson in how to draw my favourite character in this new movie. The one an only Jack Jack.
Following on from almost the exact moment we left them, the sequel is even more action packed with great action sequences, great comedy and a heartfelt family story. We had a lovely session and got to find out some very interesting things about the movie. Including… how the story formed, the reasons behind each of the main characters powers, and what it was like to delve back into The Incredibles after so many years. Watch the video below to see the interview in full. And for the artists and animators out there, you may want to grab a pen and paper and draw along.
I hope you enjoyed watching this interview as much as enjoyed hosting it. Big thanks to Disney for having me along and thanks to all the children who took part. You were awesome.
