What are the benefits of reading these Edna Mode quotes?

She is this cross between a fashionista and a nutty professor.

Her wit is sharp, and her talent is massive.

Creator Brad Bird (who also ended up being the voice of Edna) wanted to delve into the question, “Where do the suits and gadgets of superheroes come from?”

Of course, Edna would need to have a talent for manufacturing clothing, and a unique sense of fashion.

However, to create suits that stretch (like Elastigirl’s), are flame retardant, and have impressive features, she would have to be brilliant.

The result was a short spunky character of Japanese and German descent.

She had only a minor role in both films but worked her way into the heart of the fans.

These Edna Mode quotes will help you learn a few things too:

  • black is timeless (there is no “new” black)

Which of these Edna Mode quotes is your favorite?

Brad Bird’s vision created a lovable and hilarious character while earning an award for his voice acting!

Several actresses tried to duplicate Bird’s temporary voice for Edna but couldn’t quite get it.

Lily Tomlin told Brad Bird he should do it himself, and she was not alone!

Many of the crew agreed and worked to convince him.

The director wanted to debunk the idea that superheroes sewed their costumes, something he frequently wondered about as a fan of the genre.

The Incredibles was the first Pixar film to earn a PG rating, in part to Edna’s darker and edgier persona.

Edna got her name from Pixar’s program at the time of filming: EMode.
