Pixar Animation Studios has already introduced us to Riley, the protagonist of its upcoming film Inside Out (June 19, 2015), as well as her driving emotions — Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness, but there is one other key player that has yet to be formally introduced — that of Bing Bong, Riley’s imaginary friend.
While not widespread, Bing Bong himself isn’t entirely news. Reportedly CinemaBlend first reported on him but it appears his mentions were removed from the article, although MoviePilot had graciously quoted the entire spoilery review of the film’s first five minutes. Most recently, a Reddit post abut a week ago apparently had a photo of Bing Bong in toy form from toy manufacturer TOMY, but that image also has since been removed — though you can still see the photo here.
