Pixar has released the a new Inside Out clip. From director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters, Inc.), the film takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, Riley Anderson (Kaitlyn Dias), where the personifications of her emotions run the show. When Riley is uprooted from her home in the Midwest so her father can take a new job in San Francisco, Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Joy (Amy Poehler) try to help her cope with the sudden change. The film debut at Cannes Film Festival last week to overwhelmingly positive reception (you can check out Talia’s review here).
The new clip introduces Anger and Disgust, and gives some insight into why it’s so darn difficult to get a kid to eat their greens. Check out the Inside Out clip below. The film opens in 3D on June 19th, and also features Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan as the voices of Riley’s parents.
Everything about Inside Out looks fantastic, and this clip is no exception. It’s a wonderful concept, and looks expertly executed. The animation is gorgeous (I’m having a moment over how Disgust’s eyelashes poke out of her hair), and they really could not cast more perfect actors for each emotion. It’s thrilling to hear such positive word coming out of Cannes. Pixar definitely has some high expectations to live up to with this one.
Here’s the official synopsis for Inside Out.
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out.
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
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.
