From The Iron Giant to The Incredibles: Writer-Director Brad Bird Flies to Pixar
Resa Nelson

Writer-director Brad Bird reveals the story behind The Incredibles, the latest project from Pixar.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

"Flying," says Craig T. Nelson, who stars as the voice of Bob Paar, a.k.a. Mr. Incredible, in The Incredibles, due in theaters on November 5 from Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures.

"Don't you want to fly? I think that would be great."Director Brad Bird agrees. "I've had a handful of flying dreams in my life, and I'm always completely bummed out when I wake up and find that it was a dream. A couple of times it's taken me a couple of minutes to figure out it was a dream, because the flying dream was so real.

"Mark Andrews, head of story, is the odd man out. "Super strength and especially invulnerability – then you can't get hurt. You'd be really confident if you couldn't get hurt. You wouldn't have any fears. And super strength – you can move things or throw things off people or hold up falling buildings or pull out ocean liners that are sinking."
