As each piece of news trickles out for Pixar’s upcoming film, Inside Out, we grow ever-increasingly excited for June 15, 2015, to arrive. Over the weekend, the official Pixar homepage has added a new (although similar description to what we had heard previously) synopsis for Inside Out to their Upcoming films page. The official description reads –
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.
Director: Pete Docter
Co-Director: Ronnie del Carmen
Producer: Jonas Rivera
Pete Docter grew up in the mid-west (Minnesota), so you can’t help but feel the connection to his own life with his eventual move to California for college and then his journey to Pixar. We can’t wait to learn about the elements he may have pulled from his own experiences to write the film. While we wait though, join in the conversation and include your prediction for when you think we’ll get the first teaser for Inside Out.
