Today at D23 John Lasseter called Up director Pete Docter‘s new film Inside Out “one of the most unique films I’ve ever been associated with – a magical, wonderful, original film.”
The concept is one, they said, that can only be done in animation. We’re inside Riley, age 11. She’s a happy, adventurous kid from Minnesota who loves hockey. But her family movies to San Francisco and everything changes. The characters are her emotions. Anger, pictured as red with a flattop, is voiced by Lewis Black. Mindy Kaling is Disgust, teen and green. Bill Hader is fear, purple and puzzled, in a black and white checkered shirt. Phyllis Smith is Sadness, blue and wearing glasses.
And the most important character is Joy, voiced by Amy Poehler, in a yellow dress, with short blue hair. We have more story info below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Couple good little Pixar notes today. The first is that the next film from Up director Pete Docter has officially been titled. Instead of the Untitled Disney-Pixar Inside the Mind Film, it will be called Inside Out. Which we mostly knew, but it’s good to have that point settled. The temp title was just awkward.
The movie will take place inside a human mind, and more specifically will be “told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl.” The art above is really all we’ve got as far as visuals for the film, but expect more soon. [ComingSoon]
After the break, a Monsters University featurette features director Dan Scanlon explaining the new film, and giving up quite a few little plot points. Read More »
