The latest trailer for Disney/PIXAR’s Inside Out is here, thanks to Disney and Ellen.
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.
When it comes to new Disney/PIXAR movies, I’m always hesitant at first. The ideas, the pitch, the solicitation all seem so odd and foreign to me – I mean, what does an ant need with an army of other insects? Fortunately, Disney/PIXAR, under the leadership of John Lassiter, know how to tell a great story, and though Inside Out seems like a far out concept, each new trailer draws me in.
After this trailer, I feel like I know what the film is about more than I did before and it actually looks like a sweet tale of growing up and dealing with emotions.
Inside Out arrives in theaters on June 19, 2015.
