Inside Out, the next Pixar film from visionary director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up), is a little over four months away. Given that we have not seen a feature film from the studio since June 2013, when Monsters University made its debut, there is some extra excitement surrounding the upcoming film. It also helps that everything we have seen so far hints at another great film. After the break, take a peek at some additional animation featuring the main characters!
The Puppy Bowl has become a popular bit of counter-programming for those who are not as interested in the Super Bowl. Disney/Pixar chose the annual dog-focused event to promote Inside Out, an interesting move but not that surprising with the family-centric viewership. Much of the sneak peek actually has been seen in other trailers and ads, but we do get a brand new look at Riley, the 11-year-old girl in whose head the majority of the film takes place.
It was the Puppy Bowl, so the animators at Pixar included some dogs playing football that will most likely not be seen in the final film. There may be some additional animation in the trailer that was created specifically for trailers and commercials, as is often done for the marketing of Pixar films, but enjoy another sneak peek at the film below (via /Film):
The synopsis for the film follows:
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.
Inside Out hits theaters on June 19th!
