Pixar Reveals ‘Inside Out’ Synopsis


All is pretty quiet on the Pixar front this year. After Pixar took director Bob Peterson off The Good Dinosaur, that film’s release date was moved from May 30, 2014 to November 25, 2015. Seriously, that’s a long delay. This means that 2014 will be a Pixar-less year, the first in 9 years. Luckily for Pixar fans, the studio plans on releasing Inside Out on June 19, 2015.

There hasn’t been much known about Inside Out, which is to feature voice-work from Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader, but Pixar has released the film’s official synopsis to whet those appetites. Here it is:

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 is directed by Pete Docter, who directed Monsters, Inc. and the Oscar-winning Up.
