New Pixar films have become a bit of an annual tradition where we can relive our childhood through some of the best computer generated films the industry has to offer. However, for the first time since 2005, we won’t be getting a new Pixar film this year. Based on the recently-released teaser trailer, the wait could be well worth it.
Inside Out, directed by Monsters, Inc. and Up director Pete Docter, is about Riley, a young girl who moves to San Francisco with her family. Riddled with all types of emotions over moving to a new house, going to a new school, and making new friends, Riley’s emotions are anthropomorphized to help her cope with all of the new changes. While Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness do their best to work together to keep Riley on the right track, they begin to fight with one another to determine the best way to help Riley.
Inside Out will be in theaters on June 19, 2015. You can read the film’s 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.
