Last month we got a new synopsis for Pixar's upcoming animated feature Inside Out. It gave us a few new details on what we will see in the story, but today we have even more info on the movie to share with you thanks to Variety.
They were on hand at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in southern France, where director Peter Docter screened a couple of scenes from film and also talked a little about it.
The story follows a 12-year-old girl named Riley and centers on the emotions inside of her head as she deals with moving to a new place. The director says that "Riley is not our main character; she is our setting.” He also reveals that the story is "based on a strong emotional experience I had watching my daughter grow up. There is something that is lost when you grow up."
Variety seemed really impressed with what they saw, and they say "the film could eventually prove to be as revolutionary as Dante’s Divine Comedy, which so vividly described the Italian poet’s vision of heaven and hell that it has shaped the public’s image of both ever since." That's an interesting comparison for sure. They go on to say:
The site goes on to describe the second clip from the movie that centers around Riley's thinking process. This is actually a scene that was shown to us at D23 in storyboard form. Variety got to see more of a finished product.
Inside Out looks and sounds like it's going to be one of Pixar's great films. I love the concept behind it. It's set to be released on June 19th, 2015, and I'm sure Pixar fans are going to be very happy with what this movie gives them.
