THE INCREDIBLES

BRAD BIRD (Director/Screenwriter/ Voice of Edna Mode) has long been regarded by his peers in the animation community as one of the most innovative, talented and passionate purveyors of his craft. He makes his Pixar debut with THE INCREDIBLES following a distinguished career in television ("The Simpsons”) and film ("The Iron Giant”).

Bird started his first animated film at age 11, finishing it two years later. The film brought him to the attention of The Walt Disney Studios where, at age 14, he was mentored by Milt Kahl, one of Disney's legendary animators known as "the Nine Old Men.” Bird eventually worked as an animator at Disney and at other studios.

Bird's credits include a stint as executive consultant to the hit animated television series, "King of the Hill” and "The Simpsons.” For the latter, he directed several memorable episodes, including "Krusty Gets Busted” and "Like Father, Like Clown.” He is also the creator (writer, director, and co-producer) of the "Family Dog” episode of Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories.” In addition, Bird co-wrote the screenplay for the live-action feature "*batteries not included.”

For the big screen, Bird made an auspicious directing debut with the acclaimed 1999 animated feature, "The Iron Giant.” He also co-wrote the screenplay for that film, which was one of the best reviewed films of the year.
