Spoiler Alert: This interview features discussion of critical plot elements from Pixar ’s Incredibles 2 . When The Incredibles came out in 2004, it was a film ahead of its time. Marking a major paradigm shift in animation as a whole, Brad Bird ’s family-centric superhero story was so ambitious—in the midst of the technology and techniques of the era—that it seemed impossible to make, even for artists at Pixar, one of the most innovative and influential animation studios of all time. When Bird’s original work achieved huge success at the box office, and built an avid fan base, a sequel became inevitable.

Picking up the story of the Parr parents and their remarkable … [Read more...] about ‘Incredibles 2’ Director Brad Bird On Sequel Challenges, Prejudice Toward Animation, & The Prospect Of ‘Incredibles 3’

The Food and Drug Administration has effectively banned vaping company Juul ’s products from the U.S. marketplace, issuing denial orders for all of its e-cigarette products that are currently available. The company produces a vaping/e-cigarette device and four types of pods, which come in tobacco and menthol flavors and contain different levels of nicotine.
