Edna Mode was the best thing about The Incredibles. Hands down.
I still think the story about how her voice acting came about is one of the best stories ever.
I don’t know the story! Tell, tell, tell!
You don’t? Oh ho ho, this is a tale you must know!
You see, Brad Bird, the director of The Incredibles, had a very particular voice in mind for Edna Mode. So when they were casting the role, he demonstrated to the voice actress auditioning exactly what he was aiming for. The voice actress said that Brad Bird did the voice so well, he should simply be Edna Mode himself.
And that’s exactly what happened: Brad Bird himself is the voice of Edna Mode.
