I received passes to an earlier screening of Inside Out, the new Disney/Pixar movie that opens June 19, 2015. And I loved it! I mean, I want to go again. It was thought-provoking and funny and sweet and made me think introspectively. Yes…all of this from a kid’s animated movie. My kids loved it too. “Disgust” was their favorite character of course!
If you are looking for a way to beat the heat this weekend, go see Inside Out. It’s worth seeing even if you don’t have kids! Now, that’s a good movie!
Here’s a hilarious video featuring the cast of INSIDE OUT explaining what they think goes into making a Pixar animated movie:
About the film:
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.
