SPECULATION: ‘Riley’s First Date’ to be ‘Inside Out’ Short on Blu-ray

Pixar Inside Out Theatrical PosterWe previously shared news that Inside Out (June 19, 2015) co-writer Josh Cooley had directed an all new short based in the Inside Out universe and today, via an MPAA ratings release, we believe we have the title: Riley’s First Date. The MPAA has rated the short G and the production company associated with it is Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment but given the timing  — which to be blunt doesn’t mean much — we now wonder if it’s the Inside Out Blu-ray that will include this bonus feature or if it will appear on another, closer Disney release.

Pixar Inside Out Theatrical PosterWalt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with a brand new, updated synopsis for Inside Out (June 19, 2015):

Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney/Pixar’s original new film Inside Out ventures inside the mind to find out.

Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned — both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
