About a month ago, it was announced that Pixarian Josh Cooley would take the directing reins alongside John Lasseter and co-direct the upcoming Toy Story 4 film (set for a 2017 release). In addition, it was also revealed that Cooley had just finished directing a short film for the studio – which takes place inside the world of Inside Out and will appear as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray release. As of today, we now have what appears to be the title of the Inside Out short, Riley’s First Date – potentially directed by Cooley.
At this time, we cannot confirm if Riley’s First Date will be on the Inside Out Blu-ray release or potentially in front of an upcoming Disney theatrical release – similar to the release of the Monsters University short, Party Central which was shown ahead of Muppets Most Wanted. Be sure to share your thoughts with other Pixar fans about Riley’s First Date and Inside Out in The Pixar Post Forum.
