The Incredibles Is 15 Years Old Today

The Incredibles Is 15 Years Old Today

Want to feel old? Well, Pixar's The Incredibles turns 15 this week so if you remember seeing it first time round, you're officially ancient like me.

It's gone down as one of the best animated films of all time, and with an impressive 8/10 on IMDb and 97 percent critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, it's fair to say it's a bit of a classic.

If, somehow, you've not seen it, the synopsis reads: "Once one of the world's top masked crime fighters, Bob Parr - known to all as 'Mr. Incredible' - fought evil and saved lives on a daily basis.

"But now fifteen years later, Bob and his wife, a famous superhero in her own right - have adopted civilian identities and retreated to the suburbs to live normal lives with their three kids. Now he's a clock-punching insurance claims adjuster fighting boredom and a bulging waistline.

"Itching to get back into action, Bob gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment."

And of course, people are getting all nostalgic on Twitter.

Fans then had an agonising 14 year wait for the sequel of the much-loved film. In an interview with Bustle, writer and director Brad Bird tried to explain why he thinks it struck such a chord with everyone.

Bird said: "It's having icons for different moments in your life - I think everyone is at least one of these character. We all have parents... we all have been the annoying little brother or the slightly embarrassed sister or the baby that is irrepressible or whatever. We've been the best friend.

"If you go through life, a lot of people have been in four or five of the characters' situations. So I think there's a way to make people relate that gives us a little advantage over other superhero movies."
