‘Inside out’ trailer takes Pixar fans into the mind of a young girl

Pixar unveiled the teaser for its latest movie, Inside Out, giving their real first look.

Inside Out takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley, whose father’s new job has uprooted her and her family from their small Midwest town to the busy streets of San Francisco. Immersed in an unfamiliar city and a new school, Riley struggles to cope with her tumultuous and mixed emotions, all of which are given a face and a voice in the movie.

Inside Out animated emotions Pixar film 2015These emotions are Joy (played by Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). They all operate out of a high-tech control center in the young girl’s mind, labeled “Headquarters.”
 
The trailer reveals how Joy is typically the strongest presence in Riley’s mind, but now that she’s been thrust into this confusing situation, the other emotions are making themselves more known in her brain, as well.
 
Directed and written by Peter Docter (Monsters Inc., Up), the coming-of-age film poses a unique and forward-thinking take on the same emotions that we’ve seen explored in numerous Pixar movies in the past.
 
“[As parents] we were like, ‘Wow, that’s so unlike her, what’s going on her brain?’” Docter told EW. “And that’s what lead to the heart of the story — the question of what goes on inside our own minds.”
 
As Docter speaks about his inspiration he also added ‘ “from a mischievous girl into a ‘quiet’ pre-teen.”

According to Sfist, The writing involved extensive research with neurologists into emotional intelligence, and the inner world of this fictional child’s head sounds like it’s going to be pretty fantastic.

“Emotions are completely bonkers,” says Docter, “so we wanted to convey that.”

Inside Out slates on June 19, 2015.
