October 1957, the Cold War. An object from space crashes in the ocean just off the coast of Maine and then enters the forest near the town of Rockwell. Nine-year-old Hogarth Hughes investigates and finds a giant robot attempting to eat the transmission lines of an electrical substation. Hogarth eventually befriends the Giant, finding it docile and curious.
Brad Bird began work on his first animated short at the age of 11. The film brought him to the attention of Walt Disney Studios, where at age 14, he was mentored by Milt Kahl, one of Disney’s legendary “Nine Old Men”. Brad’s break as director came with the Family Dog episode of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories. Among other things, he has since written and directed The Iron Giant (1999), The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol(2011) and The Incredibles 2 (2018).
