Pixar Animation Studios has released a new plot synopsis for their upcoming feature film project Inside Out.
The story centers on the five emotions who are competing for control within the mind of a young girl. The voice cast includes Amy Poehler as Joy, Bill Hader as Fear, Lewis Black as Anger, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, and Phyllis Smith plays Sadness.
The movie is being helmed by Monsters Inc. and Up director Pete Doctor, and the new synopsis gives us more details about the conflict that unfolds between these characters.
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.
This sounds like it going to be a great and funny flick. I had a chance to see some of the stuff they are planning for it at the last D23 Expo, and I loved what I saw. You can read more about that here. The movie is set to be released on June 19th, 2015!
