The director of The Incredibles 2, Brad Bird, explained the reasons for each power of the members of the Pêra family and answered the doubt that he has not been silent for a decade. What is the reason why Zezé is the most powerful in the family?
“What interests me is the idea of the family […] I chose the powers based on what the family members are. Men are supposed to be strong all the time, so Roberto is super strong. Women and mothers are always being pulled in different directions, so Helena is elastic. Teens are insecure and always on the defensive, so Violeta controls force fields and is invisible. And ten-year-old boys are very energetic […] And babies are unpredictable, they may not have powers, they may have all powers, you have no way of knowing, “he explained.
Synopsis: “Everyone’s favorite superhero family is back in The Incredibles 2 – but this time, Helena is taking the spotlight, leaving Bob at home with Violet and Arrow to lead the heroic day-to-day life of a “normal” life. It’s a difficult transition for everyone, which is further complicated by the fact that the family still doesn’t know about Zezé’s superpowers. When a new villain outlines a dangerous and brilliant plan, the family and Ice Cream will need to find one way of working together again – which is easier said than done, even though they are all so amazing. “
