Today on Good Morning America, audiences were given an exclusive first look at the upcoming short Riley’s First Date – confirming the Inside Out Blu-ray/Digital HD bonus feature.
Directed by Josh Cooley, the short takes place one year later and features the same boy (Jordan) from the ice arena in the ending scene of Inside Out. Hilarity ensues as both of Riley’s parents attempt to play it cool outwardly as their inner emotions are on red alert trying to figure out if Riley is about to go on her first date.
The official synopsis is — Riley, now 12, is hanging out at home with her parents in San Francisco when potential trouble comes knocking: a boy shows up at the door. Can Mom’s and Dad’s emotions handle “Riley’s First Date?”
Updated – it also appears that attendees of the D23 Expo (August 14-16) will be in for a special surprise. Josh Cooley (director of Riley’s First Date, co-writer of Inside Out, and co-director of Toy Story 4) will be presenting “something” according to a recent tweet.
Whether that “something” will be additional details from Toy Story 4 or the first screening of Riley’s First Date is yet to be determined, but we’ll be sure to post additional details as we learn more.
Updated – Indeed the announcement this evening (August 14) included additional details regarding Toy Story 4 and the D23 Expo crowd was treated to the first public screening of Riley’s First Date. The initial reviews have been extremely positive and talk about the hilarity.
