For animation fans who felt there was a piece of themselves missing this year, that’s because Pixar did not have a feature film release. To correct this unfortunate happenstance, the studio will be making it up to audiences by releasing two movies in 2015. Today, Disney has unleashed the first full-length trailer for Inside Out – what could be a return to form for Pixar. Watch the trailer and see the screenshots after the break.
The first teaser trailer introduced us to our emotions, but provided very little context in relation to the story. In this new trailer, we’ve been delivered some really great insights as to what we can come to expect from Inside Out. Not only do we get to see Joy (Amy Poehler), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) work together Riley’s (Kaitlyn Dias) mind, but also how these emotions act differently in the mother and father character.
It’s all very resonating and plays out as to how we expect the inner-workings of these feelings would, but it’s still fun to watch the scene unfold. There’s a lot of great humor and each emotion is developed well for their human counterpart.
Although there was no addition footage tacked on to this “trailer,” which acts as more of a full clip, my confidence that Pixar is still able to develop unique, original stories grows stronger. Monsters University is good, I like it better than most, but Brave is pretty middle of the road compared to what we know the studio is capable of.
I was scared for the fate of Pixar because of my disgust for brave. It even made me angry that they still won the Oscar against Wreck-It Ralph. And I knew that if Inside Out looked like a bomb I would be sad. But this makes me very joyful and I look forward to seeing more of this world they’ve created.

Here is the official plot synopsis for Inside Out, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios:
Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
Directed by Pete Docter, Inside Out stars the voices of Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith, Lori Alan, Kaitlyn Dias, and Kyle MacLachlan.
Inside Out hits theaters everywhere on June 19, 2015.
