If this summer felt a little strange, it might have been because for the first time in a handful of years, Pixar didn’t release a new feature. Fear not, however, as their next animation, Inside Out is set for next June, and today the first trailer has landed.. Exploring the emotions inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley, it marks the next feature from Pete Docter (Up).
The director recently discussed the project, saying during its formation he kept asking the question, “What can animation do that we haven’t tried yet?” He added, the emotions are “their version of the Seven Dwarfs.” Check out the debut teaser trailer below, which highlights Pixar’s filmography before showcasing their latest film, featuring the voice cast of Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black.
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.
Inside Out opens on June 19th, 2015.
