Just by looking at the last two trailers for Pete Docter‘s Inside Out, Pixar’s upcoming animated film, its easy to think that the plot lacks a certain depth. The initial premise follows the five emotions of an 11-year-old girl named Riley, who has to come to terms with her family moving and leaving all her good friends behind.
The trailers have revealed that everyone has the same five emotions, and for the film the ones in Riley’s mind are Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader). As we’ve seen before, and emotional outburst at Riley HQ puts a rift between her and her parents. And now the latest trailer reveals what lead to this, and gets deeper into the plot as well as the world beyond the emotion’s HQ. Hit the jump to check out the latest trailer for Inside Out.
From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy AwardÂ®-winning director Pete Docter (â€œMonsters, Inc.,â€ â€œUpâ€) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disneyâ€¢Pixarâ€™s original movie â€œ Inside Out,â€ he will take us to the most extraordinary location of allâ€”inside the mind.
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and itâ€™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 â€“ 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 Rileyâ€™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, Rileyâ€™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.
The trailer was revealed on Ellen. In it we see that there is a bit of a darker tone to the film than previously thought. Most of what we have seen certainly played a lot of the humor card, but this trailer shows us that the film will probably have audiences shed a few tears.
Inside Out opens in theaters on June 19.
