Throughout the course of the company’s prestigious cinematic history, Pixar has traversed spectacular environments and fairytale kingdoms, whisked us to the depths of space and across vast oceans. But for Inside Out, the animation great is inverting its sense of adventure by situating the film within the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley.
Within her subconscious are five personified emotions: Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Joy (Amy Poehler), with each bringing their own archetypal character traits to the table and influencing Riley’s real-life decisions as a result. In this latest clip, the spotlight is passed to Anger and Disgust, as the pair contemplate how best to handle an incoming spoonful of broccoli, aka a child’s worst nightmare.
It appears to be lifted from the beginning of the film, too, with a voiceover narrating each emotion’s stereotypical personalities not to mention the fact that Riley herself is much younger than any of the other trailers we’ve seen hitherto. Having made its debut at the Cannes Film Festival last week, there’s already a crackle of excitement for Inside Out‘s arrival in theaters, with critics praising the animation’s unbridled imagination and sense of childhood wonder. Here’s hoping Pixar’s latest lives up to the early buzz.
Pete Docter’s movie will make its way to cinema screens on July 19, where it will also be screened in 3D.
When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.
