Unfortunately, this year will not see a release from Pixar. This marks the first time in 9 years the studio will not be gracing the big screen. However, the animation giant does have two films geared up for next year, and today we got details on the first of them; Pete Docter’s Inside Out. Pete’s previous projects with Pixar include Toy Story 1 and 2, Up and Wall-E, with this being his third time directing a full-length feature.
Scheduled to open June next year, Inside Out will center around the emotions of a young girl named Riley as they attempt to steer her in the direction they see fit as she navigates a new life in San Francisco. Joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness will each play a pivotal role as they battle it out for control of Riley’s mind, voiced by Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith, respectively.
The official synopsis from Pixar reads:
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.
Inside Out is due in US theaters June 19th 2015
