Pixar and Walt Disney Studios have recently released two of the latest clips for the upcoming CG animated feature Inside Out. If the early buzz is to be believed, Pixar has another emotional and box office powerhouse on its hands. The latest clips are available in the players below.
The film is the latest feature from Academy Award winning filmmaker Pete Docter, who co-directed such luminary Pixar projects as Up and Monsters, Inc. In short, the film has a pretty strong and incredible pedigree behind it. The first clip features the Emotions of Riley trying to deal with moving to a new city and coping with the heavy responsibilities of Riley’s father. Joy (Amy Poehler) tries to lighten the mood by convincing Riley and her mother to go to a pizza place. This results in getting served some nasty looking broccoli pizza, and the Emotions are none too pleased. The next clip features Joy offering a look at Riley’s memories and what they mean, especially her important core memories.
“In Pixar’s Inside Out, the control center of young Riley’s mind features 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.”
Pixar’s Inside Out hits theaters on June 19.
