Episodes & Reels is delivering our monthly Top 10 List a little differently this time around. We will post one entry in the countdown each night from Jan 23 – Feb 3 on Chip and Co until we finally reveal #1! Now, on to our #9 animated Disney film of all-time:
#9 – THE INCREDIBLES (2004)
Stars: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter
Director: Brad Bird
Ok, I had to limit myself to just three Disney/Pixar films for the top 10, of which The Incredibles is the first. Down the line, I will make a top 10 of solely Pixar movies, but for now I wanted to be fair to the rest of the world of Disney animation and hold back. Disney/Pixar have been trend-setters and innovators since the early 1990s thanks to basically creating digital animation (at least on a broad media scale). In 2004 they merged the world of digital animation with the world of comic book/superhero lore. What we got was one of the most exciting, funny, heart-felt and triumphant movies in Disney’s illustrious catalog. The Incredibles features a family of superheroes who are trying to live everyday lives with the rest of the commoners. However, when “Mr. Incredible” (voiced by Craig T. Nelson) becomes restless and begins to miss his crime-fighting days, hilarity and adventure take over and the family must come together like never before. The animation is stellar and among one of the best of all-time. This movie was also named #3 on my top 10 superhero movies (read the full top 10 Superhero here).
Check back tomorrow night for our #8 entry, and check us out on facebook.
