Phillip Bradley "Brad" Bird is an American director, screenwriter, animator, producer and actor.
Bird worked as an animator for Disney and wrote the screenplay for *batteries not included (1987). Bird served as a creative consultant on The Simpsons during its first eight seasons, where he helped develop the show's animation style.
Afterwards, Bird left to direct his first animated feature, Warner Bros.'s The Iron Giant (1999), which fared poorly at the box office but came to be regarded as a modern animated classic.
He rejoined at Pixar in 2000, where he would develop his second picture, The Incredibles (2004), and third, Ratatouille (2007). Both films place among Pixar's highest-grossing features and gave Bird Academy award for best animated feature.
In 2011, Bird transitioned to live-action filmmaking with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which became the highest-grossing of its franchise. He is currently directing Tomorrowland.

"Animation is the ultimate playbox for a live-action director," says cartoon historian Jerry Beck, citing the ease of making changes and additions. "They are bringing a different vision, something fresh and new."
Take Rango. "Verbinski introduced darker, edgier content and references more associated with live-action genres," says Bill Desowitz, senior editor of Animation World Network. "Industrial Light & Magic, George Lucas' visual-effects powerhouse, added a dirty photographic sensibility." This blending of talent, he says, "is broadening the appeal and demographic for animation."
