What do you think makes a Pixar film successful?
. It was the sixth film produced by Pixar Animation Studios.
. The film premiered on October 27, 2004 at the BFI London Film Festival and had its general release in the United States on November 5, 2004.
. Budget $92 million

Making of The Incredibles:
. The Incredibles is marked by a series of firsts, from the first opening logo that doesn't feature Randy Newman's theme music to the first time that human characters are in the foreground.
. The film centers on a family of humans (another first).
. Unlike the previous Pixar films, The Incredibles is not primarily a comedy.
. Every new film that Pixar has released since Toy Story has seemed to have people saying "the bar has been raised."
. The most obvious thing to notice is that Pixar has used the 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio here for only the second time. The first and last time they did was for A Bug's Life.
. The animation of the humans both is obviously stylized and remarkably convincing.
. The animation, as in everywhere else, the film excels, creating a consistent and realistic-feeling world where limits to speed, flexibility, and strength are thrown out the window.
. Cars is a 2006 American computer-animated comedy-adventure sports film produced by Pixar Animation Studios,
. Directed and co-written by John Lasseter and released by Walt Disney Pictures.
. It is also the second Pixar film—after A Bug's Life—to have an entirely non-human cast.
