Last week I watched The Incredibles and I just had to write a post to this "What Disney's Taught Me" series which aims to show the awesome messages Disney teaches us. The Incredibles is Disney Pixar- they create some of the most awesome films! About a family of superheroes who are in hiding, The Incredibles is a classic from my childhood I will never forget.
If we are being pedantic I really believe The Incredibles teaches, if you're good at something you should never hide it. We should never be ashamed of who we are. The Incredibles are trying not to show their powers despite the fact it affects their kids. Not only do they want to be "normal", Dash, the boy who is super fast, wants to be able to compete but his parents won't allow him to. Ultimately The Incredibles do good things with their powers and they should be able to be proud of their abilities. Like all of us!
The film teaches pretty cool family values. Despite the fact Violet and Dash can have some arguments, the whole family really come together (thanks to using their superpowers). They back each other up and save each other and it shows how much they love each other (not that I want to ever be in the situation they are!).
We see Violet grow in confidence. I think it's important to remember that she was awesome when she was shy, but she wanted to be confident and she blossoms with her confidence. She's happier and she learns to enjoy that she's different and it shows in all aspects of her life! At the end of the film she's very smiley and content and Disney teaches us in The Incredibles to embrace who we are and be happy in however we choose to be who we are.
Superpowers & Smiles,
The Girl in the Moonlight.
