Disney Pixar has released a new teaser clip from its upcoming computer animated comedy, Inside Out.
The animation premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this month and received rave reviews from critics – many of whom have deemed the film as one of Pixar’s best productions, ever.
The film revolves around a little girl called Riley and the five anthropomorphic emotions that live inside her head – Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger and Fear. When Riley is uprooted from her childhood home and made to move to San Francisco in order to facilitate her Dad’s new job, her emotions struggle to adjust and end up going on a whirlwind adventure within the recesses of her mind.
The film features the vocal and comedic talents of Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith (of The US Office) as Sadness, Bill Hader as Fear, Mindy Kaling as Disgust and Lewis Black as Anger. Child actress Kaitlyn Dias provides the voice of Riley, while Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan also feature as Riley’s parents.
The clip shows Joy explaining how Riley’s mind works and how important it is to safeguard the core memories of childhood that have helped to develop her personality.
Inside Out, which is directed by Pete Docter (the mind behind Monsters Inc. and Up) is set to be released on 24th July.
