INSIDE OUT Clip Has Sadness Guiding Joy

     May 18, 2015


Pixar has released a new Inside Out clip. From director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters, Inc.), the film explores the inner world of an 11-year-old girl, Riley Anderson (Kaitlyn Dias), where the personifications of her emotions run the show.  When Riley is uprooted from her home in the Midwest so her father can take a new job in San Francisco, Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Joy (Amy Poehler) try to help her cope with the sudden change.

In this clip, Joy and Sadness must make their way through Riley’s long-term memories, and while Sadness would prefer to just lay around, she also knows the way to get through the maze of memory orbs. The relationship between Joy and Sadness is presumably the crux of the film (it’s a Pixar movie, so these are your lead buddies), and it’s nice to see how they’ll play off each other.

Check out the enw Inside Out clip below. The film, which debuted to positive acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival, opens in the U.S. on June 19th, and also features Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan as the voices of Riley’s parents.

Here’s the official synopsis for Inside Out:

From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all – inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.


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 (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). 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.
