Yesterday, Disney released the first character poster for Pixar’s upcoming film, Inside Out, with the promise of more to come throughout the week. Sadness (voiced by The Office alum Phyllis Smith) took center stage yesterday, but this time around we’ve been treated to four posters featuring the rest of the main cast: Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black) and Fear (Bill Hader).
The posters themselves don’t give us much, but they are a nice little glimpse at the look of these characters and how they perfectly fit their respective names. The emotions themselves are what guide 11 year-old Riley, who struggles with moving to a new city and going to a new school. This forces Joy and Sadness away from the control panel in Riley’s brain and into the more unfamiliar territories of her mind. So, while all Pixar films have certainly been emotional experiences, Inside Out promises to give that description a whole new meaning.
Check out the new posters below, followed by the film’s synopsis and let us know what you think. Directed by Pete Doctor (Up, Monsters Inc.) Inside Out hits theaters on June 19th, 2015.
From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all – inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.
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.
