The characters in Pixar’s new 3D animation film Inside Out are getting ready to hit the Croisette. Selected in the Off-Competition category at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Oscar-winning director Pete Docter returns after presenting Up in 2009.
Called Vice Versa in French, Inside Out features human emotions as characters — and they are as colorful in every sense. The film takes place in the Cerebral Quarter, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s head, and five emotions are hard at work: Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). And all five will walk the red carpet at this year’s Cannes.
Check out the Inside Out French posters below along with a translation of the taglines. The film opens in France on June 17th and in the U.S. on June 19th.

“We really have to go up all those steps??!?” #Fear
“Don’t forget your Palme…” #Sadness
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.
