THE INCREDIBLES

In 2004, The Incredibles premiered in theaters. This is an animated film about a family of superheroes who come out of hiding to save the world from a vengeful villain.

Nerdy Fact: The film has a rule that no superhero should wear a cape, because it can cause accidents and hinder their performance. This rule was based on an incident that happened to Brad Bird when he was a child. He wore a Superman cape while riding his bike and almost choked himself when it got caught in the wheel.
