Moments ago, the first official full-length trailer for Pixar’s insanely anticipated film, Inside Out, premiered on iTunes. The trailer highlights the inner workings of the emotions in Riley’s head and that of her Mom and Dad – which was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. While the emotions are the same (Joy, Anger, Fear, Disgust, and Sadness) their physical appearance in the ‘headquarters’ are a bit different in mom and dad (shown below). It was great to see the similarities, yet differences between the emotions (like the glasses on Mom and mustache on Dad’s emotions).
With only six months until the release of the film (June 19, 2015), you can expect a lot more details, concept artwork, and interviews until the film’s release – which is of course great news for Pixar fans.
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.
Check out the full trailer below on Pixar’s YouTube page.
Additionally, we loved the viewpoint of the emotions while in the headquarters. You can really see the incredible amount of detail that each department put in while creating this film – from the lighting, animation to the effects. It was also great to see how the memory orbs are viewed and we definitely chuckled when we were treated to the Brazilian helicopter pilot memory!
DID YOU NOTICE?
There are two different versions of the Inside Out trailer that was released today – one on the Disney UK Facebook page and one that was released on iTunes. Well, in the UK version the dad is watching a memory of a soccer (football) game and the US version has him watching a hockey game – see below.
