Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Updated Synopsis, Writing Credits

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.

Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with the family press kit for Inside Out (June 19, 2015), consisting of coloring sheets, Easter egg decorating tips, door hangers and more. You can find the activities in our family press kit gallery embedded below.

In addition, we have been provided with a little bit more information about the subject matter tackled in the film. Inspired by Pete Docter’s own daughter, Ellie (who incidentally provided the voice of young Ellie in Up and was eleven years old when Inside Out production began), the film sets out to explore the mindset of Riley, who — like Ellie — begins to become quiet and withdrawn around that age.

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.
