2014 is the first year to go by without a Pixar film since 2005. But the beloved animation studio will make up for it next year with two releases. Today, we have new story details on the first of them, Pete Docter‘s Inside Out.
The film centers on the five emotions competing for control within the mind of a young girl. Amy Poehler voices Joy, Bill Hader is Fear, Lewis Black plays Anger, Mindy Kaling is Disgust, and Phyllis Smith rounds out the cast as Sadness. The new Inside Out synopsis reveals a bit more about the conflict that unfolds between them. Read it after the jump.
The updated Inside Out synopsis was revealed on the official Pixar website.
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.
For even more about Inside Out, read (or reread) our report on last year’s D23 presentation. Whatever happens with this movie, no one can fault Docter for lacking imagination or ambition.
Inside Out opens June 19, 2015.
