Pixar’s film Inside Out is all about (spoiler) reconciling the seeming conflict between Joy and Sadness. So, for the first short film starring the Inside Out characters, it makes sense to focus on the early dating life of the now 12-year old Riley, because Joy and Sadness will really get a workout as she starts to date. Disgust, Fear, and Anger will likely all get their due time in control, too, but hopefully that can wait a few years.

There’s a little over two years until the story of Woody and Buzz continues in Toy Story 4 and the film just got a major addition. Josh Cooley, the head of story on Inside Out, has been hired as John Lasseter‘s co-director on the film. It’s a move that makes sense considering Lasseter already wears about 50 hats at Disney.

Do you remember those Little Golden Books? They were a staple from my childhood. Pixar Animation Story Artist Josh Cooley (Cars, Ratatouille, Up, George & AJ) is working on an awesome “Lil’ Inappropriate Golden Book” titled Movies R Fun.
Cooley has been working on this compilation of movie art for two years and will be publishing the collection in a book which will be available at Comic-Con this year and APE Expo San Francisco in November. And don’t worry, the books and prints will also be available on Cooley’s Blog. High quality, “classy” prints will also be available as well.
Illustrations reference film classics such as The Professional, Terminator 2, Godfather, Goodfellas, Apocalypse Now, Se7en, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, Terminator, Silence of the Lambs, and The Big Lebowski. Check out some of the art embedded after the jump.
