Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with official character descriptions for the main emotions belonging to Riley, the protagonist of Inside Out (June 19, 2015), which you can find below.
Walt 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.
According 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.
We’re still a few months away from Pixar Animation Studios’ Inside Out (June 19, 2015), but we are already learning what to expect when it comes to Blu-ray in way of bonus features. In this case, it’s a brand new short set ‘in the world of Inside Out.’ Coincidentally enough, the latest trailer for Inside Out was also released today.
That news comes via a recent Variety article on ‘10 Animators to Watch.’ Among them: Josh Cooley. According to the bio that accompanies Cooley’s photo, it’s noted not only that Cooley has just finished directing the short, but that he has also been named as co-director of Toy Story 4 alongside John Lasseter.
Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have released the second full-length trailer for Inside Out (June 19, 2015), which premiered exclusively on today’s episode of Ellen Degeneres’ talk show. You can find the new trailer embedded below.
From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney/Pixar’s original movie Inside Out, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all — inside the mind.
At the International Toy Fair currently being presented at New York City, we had the opportunity to visit the TOMY Toys showroom to check out some of the first Disney toys being introduced by the North American arm of the company. In addition to ‘Miles From Tomorrowland,’ which we had already previewed here, we were able to check out prototypes of items being released in support of Pixar’s Inside Out. Although photographs were strictly forbidden for both Pixar lines, we can share a few details of the upcoming line of figures, playsets and plush.
Earlier today, LEGO Ideas announced that the LEGO version of Wall-E that was submitted to its community for consideration to become an actual LEGO production set has been approved. After reaching 10,000 community supporters back in July of 2014 — which in it of itself is no small feat — the proposed model was then passed on to the review board to consider the feasibility of the project, which of course would include Disney’s own blessings. The announcement today, which also included a ‘Dr. Who’ themed set among several other applicants that didn’t make the cut, confirmed that LEGO Wall-E will soon find its way on the shelf, although LEGO says it’s too soon to share any further details about the project. Hopefully the model will be on display at LEGO’s collector’s event at New York Toy Fair which takes place later this month as they did with the Ghostbusters Ecto-One set, another LEGO Ideas graduate.
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.
Nominations for the 42nd Annual Annie Awards were announced earlier today, honoring the best animation in film, television, video games and beyond for the previous year. The Walt Disney Company made a strong showing, as one might expect, with Big Hero 6 and ‘Disney’s Mickey Mouse’ cartoons, but Craig McCracken’s ‘Wonder Over Yonder’ on Disney XD is also respectable in its showing, while new series ‘Star Wars Rebels’ struggled to make an impact with just one nomination, as did ‘Sofia the First’ which failed to show at all.
Not to be outdone by the release of the first Jurassic World trailer, Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with a very high resolution version of recently released concept art for Peter Sohn’s The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015). In addition, a new, revised synopsis has been released. As it’s commonly known that some of the ‘key elements’ such as the asteroid’s fateful miss of Earth are still being kept in tact, the new synopsis is mostly the same. Key differences include: it appears Arlo’s family is impacted specifically, rather than his entire community; the human boy is not named; and a whole lot of marketing terms have been added to the end. The newly revised synopsis is as follows:
