The Mail a Smile (Forever®) stamps will be issued tomorrow at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, and we can hardly wait! The colorful and fun stamps feature characters from five Disney•Pixar movies, including Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) and Dashiell “Dash” Parr from The Incredibles (2004).
Creating believable muscle movement, skin, and hair in computer animation was widely considered nearly impossible until The Incredibles, the first Pixar film with an all-human cast.
Director Brad Bird wanted protagonist Robert Parr (aka Mr. Incredible) and his friends and family to have a comic-book quality yet still be believable. A computer program that gave an organic inner glow to their skin helped achieve the effect. Inspired by 1960s futuristic architecture and design, more than 100 sets were created for this meticulously detailed world, nearly three times more than any previous Pixar film.
The Incredibles won the Academy Awards for Best Animated Film and Best Sound Editing and swept the Annie Awards with a record-setting 10 wins, including Best Animated Feature.
The First Day of Issue ceremony for the Mail a Smile (Forever®) stamps will begin at 9 a.m. tomorrow. Will you be joining us?
