Pixar works on their films for years; most releases are developed for a good five years. Almost every film they’ve developed has had problems at one point of another. Some, like Ratatouille and Toy Story, were completely reworked when Pixar realized the story wasn’t working. The film newt was announced in 2008 at a Disney presentation, and canceled only two years later, making it the first announced Pixar movie to be canceled. Now we learn how the death of one story gave birth to another.

In life, we all strive to be happy. Other emotions pop up to take control of our consciousness when happiness isn’t available. So it makes sense that Joy is the main character of Pixar’s June 2015 release Inside Out. Directed by Pete Docter (Monsters Inc., Up), the film takes place in the mind of a young girl named Riley Anderson, and dramatizes the way her five primary emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust – help inform who she is as a person. After a very happy childhood in the suburbs, Riley and her family move to San Francisco. There, Joy and Sadness get lost in deep in Riley’s mind. As that pair explores the mind, Anger, Fear and Disgust try keep Riley on track, but they can’t.
At the Director’s Guild in Hollywood, CA Docter, and producer Jonas Rivera, presented the first five minutes of Inside Out, an additional scene, and tons of other details. With one year remaining until release, the film had just completed 50% of its animation. So there’s still plenty of work to be done. But it was very obvious, even at this very early stage, that Docter’s latest film is on track to be something very special.
