Sophia Bush as New Superhero Voyd in Incredibles 2
Photo Credit: Mom Start

Sophia Bush is the voice of “Voyd” in the Incredibles 2 playing a “Wannabe Super” hoping to join the ranks of the superheroes. A mega-fan of Elastigirl with a  superpower of the ability to divert and manipulate objects around her by creating voids that allow the objects to appear and disappear.

I got the opportunity to interview her when I was in LA for the Incredibles 2 event and absolutely loved her from the moment she walked in from her voice, strong words of women empowerment and more. During the interview, we talked about her new character, girl power and more. Read on to find out what she had to say.

I just want to thank you for being … YOU! – Voyd to Elastagirl

On her Character Voyd

Trying to find her character was hard to do at first because she was not sure how she fast or slow she should talk or how the scene was since the talent does not voice together. She trusted Brad Bird and his phenomenal directing skills and found her voice.

Sophia Bush: “For me, I had to think a lot about who this girl is. You know, Violet is a teenager. Voyd is a young woman. And she represents, to me, so many of the girls who I spend so much of my life talking to, girls that are in high school, college, post-college, trying to figure out who they are.”

“I thought a lot about being a young girl in this world of the Incredibles, who has powers, who thinks it’s the coolest. But you grew up looking up to Elastigirl. She was on your TV. There’s no one in your town like you. But you had an idol. And you knew that she got to shine. I want these kids to say, I grew up in a place that didn’t accept me, and I saw you on TV and your character taught me that everything was gonna get better for me and that someday I’d get to be who I am.”

“Voyd is expressing her identity. She has turquoise hair and a side shave. This is a bold expression of her inner radicalness, but she’s had to hide her biggest magic. And she gets to meet the person who made her feel like one day it was gonna be okay. And that made everything about why she just couldn’t figure out how to hold it together. It made really personal for me because it was something that’s a fight I’ve been a part of in my real life, and it helped me own the moment for this sweet girl in the recording booth.”

Women Empowerment

Sophia is heavily involved in activism for women in Hollywood and we wanted to know what it meant to her when she found out that the movie was filled with strong women’s centric.

Sophia Bush“I told Brad he’s clearly psychic, because, you know, this movie was three years in the making. So, this was pre the Time’s Up conversation being had. This was pre a lot of these studies about gender parody and even current stages of pay disparity, our lack of paid family leave in this country. Even when we look at some of the statistics that have come out about how many dads are actually now the stay-at-home parent, how many women earn equal to their male partners, how many women are actually the primary breadwinner in their households.”

“And Brad was like I mean I don’t know. I just thought it would be funny to freak Bob out, but then we’re talking backstage and he’s like, well, you know, my wife’s a superhero. She’s the coolest woman I know.”

“This movie manages to talk about identity and empowerment with not an ounce of tension, with so much humor. It welcomes everybody to the table. I’ve not heard a single guy be like, oh, that’s like a woman’s movie. They love the movie. And I’m like, yeah, because women’s issues are just life. It’s not — you don’t have to do the thing.”

She’s a Bit of a Techie Nerd

While she was doing the movie, she got a chance to visit Pixar Animation Studios and have a chance to check out the animation process to find several surprises during the whole animation process plus we got to learn that she was a bit of techie nerd in real life.

Sophia Bush: “I wish that they would do a sort of behind-the-scenes package for people to see the stages of animation because there are many layers. I mean it’s literally like lasagna. It’s like layers and layers and layers and layers and layers of code and specificity.”

“We got to see a rough cut of the film back in February. And there were whole bits of it not animated yet. Like, our
characters were like floating around with no arms like ghosts. It is so much more complex and brilliant and genius and cool than anybody knows. And, you know, to them they’re like, well, we present what’s perfect to the
world, and I’m like show me everything. I wanna see the unretouched pictures of these people. It’s really phenomenal and hundreds of people work on every movie.”

Photo Credit: Disney

“I like tech and have been investing in tech companies for about ten years. I think that when we talk about parody, for example, I think we have a problem in that women when they make any money at all. But when women make any money at all, they’re encouraged to donate to charity, which is something that I do. But men, when they make money, are encouraged to become investors. And this is a major point of disparity in our society. And so, for me, the reason that back in the day, I started writing like very small checks.”

YES! Rock on Sophia Bush! I loved every moment of this interview and what she stands for. I could have listened to her talk all day. Be sure to check out my review of the movie and take the entire family to see Incredibles 2 and Sophia’s character, Voyd now playing in theaters.


ABOUT THE MOVIE

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Meet Bob Odenkirk (voice of “Winston Deavor”) & Catherine Keener (voice of “Evelyn Deavor”) who are the new corporate duo and siblings in Incredibles 2. They are new to the superhero world but fit right in just like they should. Or shouldn’t! You will have to be the judge of that when you see it. I had the chance to interview both of them while I was in LA for the Incredibles 2 event. We talked about working with Brad Bird, their new roles in the film and more.

Meet Incredibles 2 Corporate Duo Bob Odenkirk & Catherine Keener

Working with Brad Bird

The privilege to work with Brad Bird is a great one. Not only is he a talented filmmaker but also knows how to tell a story. And did I mention he also does great impressions of all the characters? Yes, that’s true! We asked them what it like to work with Brad Bird and this is what they had to say.

Catherine Keener: “I had no idea about anything but heard that he wanted me for this part. So, when Brad called he told me that I’m doing this movie. I started pouring praise on it. I told home I’m really busy, ’cause of this and that and I said, oh, well, I’m in. And he goes, okay, great.”

Bob Odenkirk: “Yeah, all we did was praise Brad, because that’s the reason. Everyone’s like oh you’re in a Pixar movie. Can you believe it? No, but I’m in a Brad Bird movie. That’s what’s blowing my mind. And you feel like you’re in really good hands and one who doesn’t steal your own inspiration and creative input.”

Similarities to Characters

We asked both of them what they thought of their animated self on the big screen and if they thought they had any similarities with characters.

Bob Odenkirk: “I don’t know. People have said my character looks a lot like me, and there’re ways I think, yeah, that it is. And then there are ways I’m like, wow, I’m not remotely like that. Obviously I don’t dress as well as the character. That’s for sure.”

Bob also talks about Catherine’s character and said that she is alluring and talks about how she draws you in. Catherine just laughs and agrees that her character is great.

Real Life Superhero Power

Of course we had to ask if they could chose a real life superhero power what would it be. Bob mentions that Catherine has a really good one and I have to agree with him as I liked her answer. But Bob also had a good one too.

Bob Odenkirk: “I would like to be able to eat whatever I want and not gain weight.”

Catherine Keener: “I would just like to be able to go home at any time, that’s all I wanna do. Just clap my hands and And I’m home. I’m in my pajamas. My bed’s made. Clothes are off the floor. And I’m ready to go to bed, you know.”

Character Challenges

In everything we do there is a possibility of challenges that come with work. We asked them both if there were any challenges with their characters or scenes they felt like they had to try again.

Catherine Keener: “It was like one run on tape for hours. I mean there were times where I would start and I’d be, oh, wait, wait, and Brad was like like “that was good”.”

“You have to trust Brad, because he’s putting the movie together, And he knows the tone of it all and the other characters, and it’s changing over time. So, you could feel it changing in the script, the tone, a little bit, but you don’t know really know where or how. And you never have the whole script. But you really just guessing at what might work. So, you give him what he wants, get that first and then maybe say what if I tried this and that.”

Bob Odenkirk: “Brad ended up telling me that he used a lot of my stuff. I think he was saying that a fair amount of the things that I tried or offered up, he said he used.”

Two women characters, fully intelligent and super strong. – Bob Odenkirk

Touching Notes from Bob Odenkirk and Catherine Keener

The interview ended with some touching notes that they both shared about the movie that made an impact on them.

Bob Odenkirk talks about how he was happy that his daughter was there to see the movie and see a female superhero along with seeing the scene where Mr. Incredible is knocking on Violet’s bedroom door and she tells him to leave her alone. Bob Odenkirk really liked that his daughter got to experience what it’s like on the other side of her door because he wants her to see that in real life he’s there to help her but he can’t.

Bob Odenkirk: “There’s a scene where you see Evelyn and Elastigirl facing off. That to me is a scene that you don’t see. Two women characters, fully intelligent and super strong. They are not rushing past it, taking the time, picking each other apart, picking apart the themes of the movie for an extended moment. And the fact that that is two women.”

Bob Odenkirk: “If that was a guy and Elastigirl, fundamentally not the same message to the audience subconsciously of female characters can be well-rounded. And they can be evil and good and both at the same time and take part of the story on the level those two characters in that moment. It would not be the same to just have Elastigirl be the superhero. That’s great. But that scene is what separates it from the thing.”

Catherine Keener: “I totally agree with you and appreciate that Brad never made an issue out of that. It’s like he never said, oh, this is, even though, like you said, subconsciously. It is unusual, but he just presented it as reality. And in our experience, it is so reality.”

Hearing the numbers for INCREDIBLES 2 making $182.6 million domestically this past weekend makes it the perfect time to share my interview with Violet & Dash Parr voiced by Sarah Vowell & Huck Milner.

Is she having adolescence? – Dash to Violet

These 2 mesh well together as they are funny and act like siblings on and off screen. During the interview we talked about working with Brad Bird, what superhero power they would choose and more.

Interview with Violet & Dash Parr Voiced by Sarah Vowell & Huck Milner

Working with Brad Bird

This is the first time that Huck has voiced Dash along with being in an animated film and said that Brad make it really fun to work on the movie. While this is the second time around for Sarah she talks about how she trusts Brad because he is entertaining and and an exceptional voice actor himself.

And if you don’t know by now, Brad does the voice of Edna Mode but can also do good impressions of the other characters from Incredibles 2.

Real Life Superhero Power

We asked both of them if they could choose a real-life superhero power what would it be. Huck said that he would like to be super fast like Dash because he is not fast in real life and would like to beat his cousins and sisters at any game.

Sarah said that she would like super-strength power and be able to open a jar without having to use the rubber things to open it. I totally agree with Sarah and would love that super strength power myself.

 

Violet stays alive just because of other peoples’ fandom. – Sarah Vowell

What Violet Represents

“Becoming invisible is sort of like that teenage girl thing where you just wanna like, you know, hide. And then also her force fields don’t want to let you in. But then as she develops her powers and becomes her person she not only learns how to use the powers but enjoys using the powers, then they become her
strengths. And then those powers really reflect what she can do and not what she’s afraid of.” – Sarah Vowell

First Look at Character Products

Being that this is Huck’s first animated film we asked him if he’s seen the any of the Dash toys or has any. He mentioned that he owned the first movie prior to working on Incredibles 2 and now owns a talking Dash doll. And how many times has he pulled that string to hear his voice? – About 100 times!

Sarah also mentions that it has been a while since the first film, but when you become one of these
characters, you are that character until you die.

Favorite Character Superhero Moment

Being that this movie is about superheroes we wanted to know what was their favorite, most proud scene of their characters’ superhero moment.

“In the first movie there was that moment in the cave on the island when they need to go save Bob. Elastigirl,Violet and Dash were in the cave and Violet is like I don’t know if I can do this, and her mother says you’ve gotta step up. And she decides, okay, I’m gonna try. And she goes out of the cave, stands up, does the superhero pose and puts her mask on.” – Sarah Vowell

“My favorite part with my character in the new movie – not really a superhero part. I just liked it when he was pressing buttons and crushing a couch inside of a water feeder.” – Huck Milner

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

If there was only one remote that controlled it all my life would be more simpler.

6 Reasons Why Incredibles 2 Is The Superhero Movie to See

If you want to know what the Parr family has been up to since 2004, the wait is over. Incredibles 2 is now playing in theaters everywhere and I cannot be more excited. I got to see the movie last week while I was in LA and yes it is definitely worth the wait but before I tell you why make sure you watch the first one again because the end is where the second one begins.

6 Reasons Why Incredibles 2 Is The Superhero Movie to See

It’s Better Than the First

This beloved animated classic of all time is better than the first. With the animation upgrade, the soundtrack is awesome, story is good, and so much more that I would love to tell you but I don’t want to spoil it for you.

Not Just for Kids

I think the adults are more excited to see this super sequel over the kids because I mean it’s been 14 years. We were were young when we saw the first one and now excited to see the sequel from our childhood. Trust me there is plenty of humor, action and life lessons in the film for all ages to enjoy this film.

You’re not good. You’re super! – Violet to Mr. Incredible

Parent Role Reversal

The role is reversed as Elastagirl is the bread winner and Bob is the stay at home dad. You get to see the struggles of him juggling 3 kids, one going through adolescence and one a baby along with life itself is real life. But is also gives him a chance to get to know his kids. This film shows that nurturing parents are capable of doing anything.

New Characters

While Dash is still Dash but is now voiced by Huck Milner because it’s been 14 years and Spencer Fox is no longer a kid. There are also several other new characters in the movie you will get to meet such as Voyd (voiced by Sophia Bush), Winston Deavor (voiced by Bob Odenkirk) and Evelyn Deavor (voiced by Catherine Keener) along with a few other super heroes.

Jack-Jack and Edna Stole the Show

I’m mean of course Edna is going to steal the show because she is Edna but Jack-Jack also is the star of the movie. Being that he is the baby and learning his super powers to find that he may have more than one.

Photo Credit: Disney

Family is Everything

In the movie they make family extremely important no matter if you’re a super or average family. They show ways to bring family together such as sitting at the dinner table, talking among each other and no one is engaged in technology.

Now the big question is are we going to have to wait another 14 years for part 3? Let’s hope not!

Take the entire family to see Incredibles 2 in theaters on June 15th!

A Look Inside Disney Channel's New Series Big City Greens
Photo Credit: Love Bugs and Postcards

This show is two parts funny and one part heart. – Chris and Shane Houghton

My visit to LA last week would have not been complete without stopping by the Disney Channel building to hear more about the new show Big City Greens and talking with the creators Shane and Chris Houghton. I was excited to learn about this new show because I’ve heard so much about it and it’s a show that my son and I are going to watch.

Photo Credit: Disney Channel

Before we interviewed the brothers we had a chance to screen 2 episodes. The episodes sure got some laughs out of us and I have a feeling it’s going to be popular with the kids when it debuts. During the interview we talked about the characters of the show, their inspiration for it and more. I’ve learned several interesting things about the brothers and show that I would like to share. Check them out!

A Look Inside Disney Channel’s New Series Big City Greens

The characters are based on real life people the Houghton brothers grew up with.
The grew up in the state of Michigan and came up with the characters based on their friends and family and some real life experiences. For example, Grandma Alice is based on their grandma who’s name was Alice but has since passed away and Chris is the voice of Cricket. In the picture above is what they called the old garage growing up and is also called the old garage in the show.

Big names drops as guest voices.
Throughout the series you will hear several familiar celebrity voices such as Raven-Symoné voicing a news reporter Maria Media, Busta Rhymes voicing a wise fish and many more to come. It starts with a character already on the storyboard and then the voice is chosen and sometimes that happens to be a know celebrity.

The Greens are not a traditional family.
The creators didn’t want this show to be a traditional family and that is why they created that the dad, Bill is a single father who lives with his mom and son. They didn’t want it to portray as a squeaky clean type of fulfillment show they wanted it to be more of the families that they knew.

Chris sang the song at the end of the show.
Shane and Chris created the song and Chris sang the song which consists of 3 parts and was sang at the studio at his home. They wanted to do a fun country theme it is based on a kid who wants to go out and play outside, get scraped up and then go out the next day and do it all again.

About Big City Greens

This series follows the offbeat adventures of 10-year-old Cricket Green, a mischievous and optimistic country boy who moves to the big city with his wildly out-of-place family – older sister Tilly, dad Bill and Gramma Alice. Cricket’s curiosity and enthusiasm leads his family on epic journeys and into the hearts of his new neighbors.

Big City Greens premieres June 18 at 9:30 a.m. on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD.

Fresh Strawberry Ice Pops

Cool off this summer with this recipe for fresh strawberry ice pops that you can make with store-bought strawberries or ones from your garden. I would suggest using fresh strawberries rather than frozen as they will taste better. To make frozen strawberry pops is easy, the hard part is waiting for them to freeze. If you make them the night before they will be ready the next day when the summer heat sets in.

There are many popsicle molds you can choose from to create these ice pops from silicone, plastic, stainless steel and more. You can find a variety here depending on your preference. And if you don’t want to make it on a stick you can always use an ice pop pouch such as the zipsicle brand which is my favorite to use.

Fresh Strawberry Ice Pops

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh Strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • Popsicle Mold or ice pop pouch

Directions

  1. Cut strawberries into small pieces.
  2. Place chopped strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in food processor and pulse until all chopped and smooth.
  3. Pour into molds and freeze until solid.
