Every year, the Annecy International Animation Film Festival celebrates the achievements of a prominent personality from the world of animation with its special prize, the Honorary Cristal. This year, Annecy has chosen to honor the filmmaker Brad Bird.
Brad Bird is an exceptionally talented American director, screenwriter and producer.
Brad has written and directed 3 major animated movies which unmistakably left their imprint on our culture: THE IRON GIANT, which won a BAFTA Award; and the Pixar films THE INCREDIBLES, which won the Best Animated Feature Film Academy Award® and the Best Achievement in Sound Editing Academy Award®, and RATATOUILLE, which also won the Best Animated Feature Film Academy Award®. Brad will be this year at the Annecy Festival to present his brand new film, INCREDIBLES 2. The film will be released on July 4, 2018 in France.
INCREDIBLES 2 Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back!
In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of „normal“ life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash 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 by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Directed by Brad Bird (THE IRON GIANT, THE INCREDIBLES) and produced by John Walker (THE INCREDIBLES) and Nicole Grindle (Sanjay’s Super Team short, TOY STORY 3 associate producer), INCREDIBLES 2 bursts into French theaters on July 4, 2018.
Note : Released in France on November 24, 2004, THE INCREDIBLES amassed more than 5,4 M admissions.
