Video: Disney-Pixar Putt Pop-Up In NYC & Interview With Emma Berman From ‘Luca’
  |  @   |  

A new destination attraction just opened in Battery Park in lower Manhattan. Pixar Putt is a Disney Pixar-inspired mini golf course located next to Pier A with views of the Statue of Liberty and The Freedom Tower on either side. The pop-up comes on the heels of Pixar’s latest film Luca, which premiered on Disney Plus earlier this Summer and was just released on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray. Celebrating the opening of Pixar Putt, Emma Berman, Giulia in Luca, was there to play a few holes and answer some of our questions.

Emma, who just turned 13, is making her big screen debut in Luca and instantly became a fan favorite, especially with my 10-year-old daughter. You can check out our full video interview below.

‘Incredibles 2’: Brad Bird On Making A Bold and Weird Animated Sequel For Everyone
  |  @   |  

It has been 14 years since the first Incredibles hit theaters in 2004. Back then, superheroes weren’t such a big deal. But now they are at the forefront of the film industry. Most, if not all, are record-breaking films. But what separates Incredibles from the Marvels and the DCs is its timeless classic vibe.

Now Incredibles 2 has finally arrived. The sequel may look like it’s taking place in the ’60s, but it is able to connect to a modern audience with its likeable characters and universal stories. We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and director Brad Bird about the long-awaited sequel. During our time, Bird spoke about why it took so long to do a sequel, some of the changes he made, and making a film for everyone of all ages. Check out what he had to say, below.

The Incredibles is that perfect blend of fun and nostalgia. It’s that call back to a time where things were much simpler, but there was still a world that needed saving. There was no social media. Fun actually consisted of going outside and getting fresh air. And yet, the themes explored in that film still felt very relevant to the time of its release. Insecurities, loss, family. Everything about it was signature Pixar. Those poignant themes mixed in with a whole lot of fun. And who doesn’t love a good superhero movie?

Flash forward 14 years later. Superhero movies are now all too common. There are those who are worried about superhero fatigue. Some even roll their eyes at the fact that another is released or are shocked that there is a sequel. But not so much with Incredibles 2. It’s the sequel everyone is waiting for. The entire cast is back for this animated feature and with Brad Bird at the director’s helm for a sequel that proves good things come to those who wait.
