Inside Out is set for a theatrical release date of June 19, but wouldn’t you love the chance to see it a few days earlier? According to TheWrap, a unique early screening of the full-length feature film (along with the short Lava) will hit hundreds of movie theaters across the U.S. on Tuesday, June 16 – three days prior to its official release. This exclusive one-night event will include a LIVE Q&A with director Pete Docter, producer Jonas Rivera and the voice of Joy, Amy Poehler – who will be present via satellite from their Australian press tour. The screening which will be presented by Disney and Fathom Events will also feature 15-minutes of bonus behind-the-scenes footage which is sure to delight fans.
“So many people contribute to a movie like this and we can’t wait to share a little bit of what goes on behind the scenes — it’s a long journey, but it’s so much fun ” – Docter stated to TheWrap. “We’re excited to offer moviegoers the ultimate fan experience for ‘Inside Out’ and an exclusive look into the creation of the film,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey added. “Hearing the cast and crew discuss the film live from Australia is an opportunity not to be missed.”
Tickets will be available for purchase on May 15 and while a full list of participating theaters has yet to be released – you can sign up for email/text notices from Fathom Events or continue to follow Pixar Post for all the latest information on this great event.
