The plot of the new Incredibles movie features a heroine whose life swings between high adventure and humdrum normality, American actress Holly Hunter, who voices Helen, otherwise known as Elastigirl, said Monday. Hunter was speaking after the British premiere of “Incredibles 2” at London’s British Film Institute, where she was joined on the red carpet by co-star Samuel L. Jackson, who plays the character Frozone.
The film features a family of superheroes who also have an ordinary family life. “People really want the fantastic and they recognize the [ordinary],” Hunter told Reuters Monday. “They recognize the fights and the stresses and the tensions and the bickering and the fussing and the challenges and the competition that we see with this family.”
