Disney-Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” held its Philippine premiere June 11 at the SM Aura IMAX Cinema, heralding the return of the beloved Parr brood of superheroes.
Adjunct to the premiere was the unveiling of family portraits created by Pixar animator Bryn Imagire who flew in from the US to for the film’s Manila launch. Credited as the Shading Art Director of “Incredibles 2,” Imagire interpreted the Dantes (Dingdong, Marian Rivera & daughter Zia), Kramer (Doug, Cheska and children Kendra, Scarlett & Gavin) and Belo-Kho (Vicky, Hayden and daughter Scarlet) families as “Incredible” supers.
All three families attended the big reveal, visibly delighted by their portraits.
In his Instagram post after the event, Dingdong Dantes wrote, “Many thanks to Bryn Imagire… [S]he made us her own interpretation of a Dantes Incredibles family portrait! What an honor and privilege!”
For his part, Doug Kramer shared, “What an honor it was to be one of the 3 families that Ms Bryn Imagire sketched through the #Incredibles2 theme here in the Philippines!”
Not to be outdone, Vicky Belo raved “How incredible is this version of our family portrait by Bryn Imagire! Thank you Bryn, its such an honor to be immortalized by you!”
The “Incredible” family portraits are currently on public display at the SM Aura Atrium.
“Incredibles 2” opens in Philippine cinemas nationwide on Thursday, June 14, 2018. Join the conversation online by using the hashtags #Incredibles2 and #IAmIncrediblePH
About Incredibles 2
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 14, 2018.
