Persuasion 142: The Incredibles Teach Us How to Be Human
Fifteen years ago, Pixar introduced us to The Incredibles—a family just like any other… except they also had superpowers. The 2004 animated film made this super-family relatable, with sibling squabbles, work frustrations, and miscommunication. And this year, the long-awaited sequel gave us another look inside this relatively normal family with abnormal skills.
In this ounce of Persuasion fast chat, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson chat about some of the key storylines from the two films. The conversation is practically spoiler-free, focusing more so on the way this story affirms and values the unique role of the individual while inspiring the individual to be part of the team.
