For the first time since the 2005 gap between The Incredibles and Cars, 2014 will not see the release of a new Pixar film. This month was originally supposed to see the debut of the studio’s The Good Dinosaur, but production troubles arose last year and after removing director Bob Peterson from the project in August, its release was pushed to November 2015 and a replacement film for 2014 was never announced. Pixar’s follow-up to Monsters University will finally arrive in June 2015, and it’s an incredibly promising project. From Up and Monsters Inc. director Pete Docter, Inside Out takes place inside the mind of a young girl, and the protagonists are anthropomorphized versions of the young girl’s emotions.
Though we’re still over a year out from the pic’s release, a new Inside Out synopsis has arrived that sheds more light on the film. The animated pic features the voices of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black and opens in theaters on June 19, 2015. Hit the jump to take a look at the synopsis.
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.
