One of our favorite parts of the INCREDIBLES 2 home edition is having more of Edna Mode, including a look at her design rival Galbaki, that was deleted from the film. Edna Mode is voiced by director Brad Bird and possesses impeccable design sense, a keen understanding of cutting-edge technology and an unmatched skillset. A creative visionary, Edna longs for the return of Supers so she can once again create functional yet cutting-edge supersuits.
Featured in the INCREDIBLES 2 home edition is an all-new “Auntie Edna” mini-movie short. When Bob Parr visits super-suit designer Edna Mode looking for help with his high-energy toddler Jack-Jack, Edna pulls an all-nighter designing a suit to harness the baby’s seemingly limitless powers.
