This week Pixar released details of its next animated film, “Inside Out,” and it has an interesting premise.
The movie will focus on five emotions competing for control in the mind of a young 11-year old girl named Riley. As the story starts, she is uprooted from her comfortable Midwest life to San Francisco when her father starts a new job.
Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) – which live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind. Soon the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school, and Riley has to get them under control again.
The film will be directed by Pete Doctor (“Up,” “Monsters, Inc.), with a score by Michael Giacchino (“Ratatoullie,” “The Incredibles”). It will open in theaters in the US on June 19, 2015.
“Inside Out” is one of two Pixar films on the way in 2015. “The Good Dinosaur” will open November 25th.
Editor’s note: Does this movie sound perfect to take over the old Wonder’s of Life attraction Cranium Command in EPCOT? You betcha. Someone alert Team Disney Orlando.
