WATCH: Pixar ‘Inside Out’ Spanish Trailer Featuring Baby/Toddler Riley, Train of Thought and Bing Bong

Pixar 'Inside Out' Screen GrabWalt Disney Studios Spain has released its second trailer for Pixar Animation Studio’s Inside Out (June 19, 2015), which you can find embedded below. While it shares some footage in common with the recent domestic trailer(s), there’s plenty of new animation in here including Riley as an infant (in which it appears Joy and Sadness first meet), as a toddler and then growing into her 11 year old age that we see through the majority of the film. Also featured are the ‘train of thought’ and what may very well be our first official head-on glimpse of Bing Bong, who appears to be with both Joy and Sadness inside long term memory before escorting them through Imagination Land and Dream Productions, which certainly appears to fit with his rumored position in the film.

REPORT: Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Unannounced Toon Voiced by Pixar Alum (Minor Spoilers)

Pixar Inside Out Theatrical PosterAccording to a source who wishes to remain anonymous, despite claiming a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) was not required on their behalf, the voice being lent to the Bing Bong character in Pixar’s upcoming film, Inside Out (June 19, 2015), belongs to none other than comedic actor Richard Kind. The information was obtained via a test screening recently held for the film. No stranger to the Pixar Animation Studios roster, Kind has previously voiced peripheral characters for A Bug’s Life, Cars and Toy Story 3. Bing Bong, believed to be the childhood imaginary friend of protagonist Riley, can actually be spotted several times in the most recent trailer for the film, both in whole and in parts — he’s the one seen leading Joy and Sadness into ‘Imagination Land’ and through ‘Dream Productions,’ as well as riding on the rocket device that expels rainbows.

And then there are the parts you didn’t get to hear and see, the clips — unless, of course, you were in the at-capacity audience. Fortunately, I was one of them and I am about to detail (to the best of my memory) what I heard and saw when the live stream was blocked.
