Earlier, we shared an article that dove into how the team created the Parr’s new home in the film, and now we’re going to share the entire 40-minute interview that explores the home, the cities in the film, as well as the research behind the design choices which were made throughout the Incredibles 2 world.

- There are quite a few early-screening opportunities for Incredibles 2 and we list out at least 18 different choices you have – (D23 Gold Member Gatherings, D23 Gold Member Complimentary Tickets, AMC Double-Feature tickets and even some options at AMC IMAX theaters as early as June 6.

The main portion of this episode (starting at 30:20) is our interview with Ralph Eggleston (Production Designer), Bryn Imagire (Shading Art Director), Philip Metschan (Visual Designer), and Nathan Farris (Sets Supervisor).
Listen in as they share wonderful details about how they held back the animation quality of the new film at the very opening of the film so it wouldn’t be as visually jarring if someone watched The Incredibles and immediately wanted to turn on Incredibles 2. They also discuss some amazing details about how they crafted complete cities for the film (even some buildings in the background).
