Though Pixar continues to deliver box-office hit after box-office hit, the studio's taken some flack lately for what seems to be a growing reliance on sequels, a criticism that only sharpened when the studio announced the unexpected Toy Story 4 earlier this year. In 2015, though, Pixar will give us another original film based on a very intriguing concept.
Inside Out is the story of Riley (Kaitlyn Dias), a young girl who's just moved to a new house, a new school, and a new city, but this story's not told through Riley's eyes. Instead, it will be told through the eyes of the emotions living in Headquarters, the control center of Riley's mind. These emotions -- Joy (Amy Poehler), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) -- are doing their best to help Riley adjust to her new life, but even as Joy tries to keep everyone positive, the emotions begin to battle over how best to deal with everything Riley is facing.
Until today, we'd only seen glimpses of exactly how this concept will work as a story, but the latest trailer shines quite a bit of light on that. It's not so much a trailer as it is a scene from the film, as Riley and her parents (Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan) sit around the dinner table eating Chinese takeout. Riley's in a bad mood, her parents are trying to figure out what's wrong, and as a bit of family drama ensues we see how the emotions inside all three minds react. It's a clever, funny scene, and it's got us itching to see more.
