Over the years, Disney and Pixar have served up some truly memorable gems with the likes of Up, Finding Nemo, and the indelible Toy Story series, motion pictures that evoked all sorts of emotions from us as we laughed and cried our way through the their celebrated line-up. But for the pair’s next outing, Pixar is poised to play with these feelings in a literal sense with Inside Out, an all-new animation that imagines a world where humans are governed to brilliant effect by their emotions.
From Joy to Fear, Disgust to Sadness, there are an array of sensations that will play a part in the studio’s flick, which will orbit around Riley, an 11-year old girl whose growing pains are exacerbated when her father forces their family to move out to San Francisco to pursue a new job. It’s a typical story that looks to have been serenaded with that Pixar magic. Plus, with a voice cast the includes Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling and Man of Steel‘s Diane Lane, Inside Out is certainly shaping up to be one of the most eye-catching films of next year’s summer calendar.
Emotions will run rampant and wild when Disney’s Inside Out arrives in theaters on June 19, 2015. For now, you can share your thoughts on the first full-length trailer in the comments.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
