Interestingly enough, while most of the footage isn’t new, there is a new clip of Casey being shot at as she runs from the sci-fi/comic shop, the same one we saw her talk to Keegan-Michael Key and Kathryn Hahn’s characters in the Japanese trailer, only they don’t appear so polite in this clip. One can only imagine that Casey’s pin is quite coveted by quite a few others.

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.
