Samuel L. Jackson is reprising his role as Mr. Glass in the upcoming Glass, the sequel to Unbreakable and Split, and he is also reprising his role as Frozone in Incredibles 2, the sequel to The Incredibles. Incredibles 2 is available to see in cinemas across the United States and this film reunites Samuel L. Jackson with director Brad Bird. At a press day for the film in Los Angeles, both Jackson and Bird gave their thoughts on various aspects about Incredibles 2.

Brad Bird

One of the things that Brad Bird discussed at this press day was why he decided to start Incredibles 2 right were The Incredibles ended:

I just thought it was bold and weird because people take the time that passes very literally and they think that the characters should have aged, but if they age, their superpowers don’t reflect the part of life that they’re in and their role in the family. I worked on the first eight seasons of The Simpsons, and they haven’t aged a day and they’re still on the air. It’s worked for them, so why not us?”

Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson was asked whether anyone associates his voice with this franchise:

Kids don’t do that! Their parents do, and they try to make the kid know who you are. ‘That’s Frozone, honey!’ And the kid is looking at you like, ‘You don’t have a blue suit on! You’re not making ice stuff!’ And then, you have to give the kid a catch phrase. But, they don’t know who we are from Adam. We don’t get a new audience because we did a movie that kids really like. They have no idea who we are, in our real selves.”
