We likely have to wait until Disney’s Big Hero 6 hits theaters this November to see a trailer for Pixar’s newest feature, Inside Out, but today we have our first official image of the film to tide us over.
The photo features 11-year old girl Riley, whose mind acts as Inside Out‘s main focus. Riley’s family is moving cross country, and the stress from the move throws off her emotions, which actually act as the main characters: Joy (Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler), Anger (comedian Lewis Black), Distrust (The Mindy Project and The Office actress Mindy Kaling), Fear (SNL and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs alum Bill Hader), and Sadness (The Office‘s Phyllis Smith).
We’ve already seen some concept art for the film, featuring the character designs for the emotions, but this is our first look at Riley herself. It may not be the most exciting image Pixar could have released, but at least we’re finally seeing something from this highly anticipated and very intriguing project.
Directed by Up helmer Pete Doctor, Inside Out will hit theaters (and likely tugs at our own emotions) on June 19th, 2015. Check out the official synopsis below:
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.
