The little voices inside your head know you inside and out — and they’ve returned.
Here is the 90-second first teaser for Inside Out 2, Disney and Pixar’s sequel to their 2015 toon that was a global smash. Have a look above, and see the new key art poster below.
The scene is set as alarms shatter a quiet morning in Riley’s head: It’s “demo day” in there — complete with wrecking ball, deconstruction crew (crüe?) and Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train” blaring. Seems our hero is turning 13, an a new emotion has arrived: Anxiety. Carrying baggage, of course.
The original Inside Out followed Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), a young girl who is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, with her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) – then coming into conflict as to how to best navigate a new city, house, and school.
Maya Hawke voices Anxiety, joining Inside Out veterans Poehler, Smith, Black. Franchise newcomers Tony Hale and Liza Lapira take over the respective roles of Fear and Disgust.
Inside Out premiered Out of Competition at the 68th Cannes Film Festival, grossing nearly $859M worldwide upon its June 2015 release. Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen directed that pic, which they scripted with Meg LeFauve and Josh Cooley later went on to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, also landing a nom for Best Original Screenplay. It also won the top prize at the Annie Awards.
Docter initially pushed back on the idea of a sequel to the pic, reaffirming his commitment to making original films. But the three-time Oscar winner relented, and Inside Out 2 was confirmed at Disney’s D23 event last year. Pixar veteran and first-time helmer Kelsey Mann takes over the directing reins, and the pic’s exclusive theatrical run launches June 14.
