Pixar’s Pete Docter’s Inside Out Revealed at D23

I’m loving the sound of this new Pixar film. Very “out there”! But so was Monsters Inc and that’s one of my favorites. Will this be a return to the very original films the Pixar we know and love used to do?

The following is an excerpt from this link: SlashFilm. Click the link to read more – quite a concept!

The concept is one, they said, that can only be done in animation. We’re inside Riley, age 11. She’s a happy, adventurous kid from Minnesota who loves hockey. But her family movies to San Francisco and everything changes. The characters are her emotions. Anger, pictured as red with a flattop, is voiced by Lewis Black. Mindy Kaling is Disgust, teen and green. Bill Hader is fear, purple and puzzled, in a black and white checkered shirt. Phyllis Smith is Sadness, blue and wearing glasses.

And the most important character is Joy, voiced by Amy Poehler, in a yellow dress, with short blue hair. We have more story info below.

Footage shown and described let us know about the “headquarters” of the film — Riley’s consciousness, seen as a screen, with memories storied on racks. Joy is at the controls. If she likes a moment, they store it on a shelf, and it can be replayed like a DVD. But tensions are escalating in headquarters. Joy and Sadness are thrown out of the mind and into places people have thought about but never seen.

One space, Long-Term Memory, looks like a huge room. There are Imaginationland, Abstract Thought, and Dream Production (looks like a movie lot), all connected by the Train of Thought. Headquarters is left with Anger, Fear and Disgust in charge. Things are hard for Riley.
