Pixar Updates Website With New Description of Inside Out

Inside Out characters concept art in headquarters

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.

  1. This has some great insights and, just like the rest of the world, you know I'm CRAZY pumped for the film!One of the things I'm most interested in is how they'll pull off Riley. An 11 year old girl is not an easy thing to pull off. Realistically, at that age in between a young child and a teenager, she would have some strong emotions. She's maybe starting to put off more childish things, starting to think about her social life/friends more/ what people think and starting to possibly develop a pre-teen snippy attitude. The trick is to make her sweet, likable and relatable while staying somewhat realistic to that age, without making her snobby, stuck up or seemingly spoiled….especially when dealing with such heavy subjects like moving a new school, new friends and parents who care (but don't seem to at that age haha). Plus we know she's doing to be dealing with lots of anger, fear, sadness and disgust so it really is a tough one. It's much harder to pull off then, say, Boo's age (who can just be adorable and loved by everyone) or even Russel's. I have full faith in Pete though that he'll be able to make a memorable and loved character out of Riley, he sure knows what he's doing! I'm just really interested to get an insight into her personality.
