Elastigirl is a 2020 American computer-animated film by Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios and directed by Brad Bird. It is a spinoff/prequel to the 2004 animated film The Incredibles and the 2018 animated film Incredibles 2. It is the 3rd film in the ICU (Incredibles Cinematic Universe).
After defeating the Screenslaver and legalizing superheros, Elastigirl gets a request from a digital innovations company called Voltco, who ask Elastigirl to go back in time to advertise their products to superheroes by showing its importance on an everyday life and the ways that a superhero would use it. This ends up working pretty successful, and many people begin to use Voltco products, but a mysterious villain named Lightning Bolt tries to use their products as a threat to the superhero population rather than a gift. He targets Mr. Incredible first, and Elastigirl has to try to save Bob from letting the product take him over.

On July 10th, 2016, Brad Bird announced there will be a solo Incredibles film about Elastigirl. Two weeks later, the production of the film had started.
The animation was done at Pixar Animation Studios in Hollywood, California. The computers were equipped with very quick rendering that only took about 2 hours and 10 minutes to fully render an image, which made animating the film a lot easier. The total animation budget was $115 million.
The visual effects played a big part in the animation and would often reflect the powers from the first two films, and would make them look bigger and better, especially during the action scenes.
Casting was done by Natalie Lyon, and the same voice actors from the first two films were used, along with the addition of Sam Rockwell to voice the main villain of the film, Lightning Bolt.
Once the movie was done filming, there were tons and tons of revisions to be made during the post-productions. Scenes that didn't render properly were re-animated to make them appeal a bit better than previously.
The sound effects were done by the same crew who did the sound effects for the second Incredibles film.
