Brad Bird is an American actor, animator, director, producer and screenwriter. Bird developed a love for the art of animation at an early age and was mentored by Milt Kahl, one of Disney's legendary Nine Old Men. 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 joined John Lasseter at Pixar in 2000, where he would develop his second picture, The Incredibles (2004), and third, Ratatouille (2007). In 2011, Bird transitioned to live-action filmmaking with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, which became the highest-grossing of its franchise.
