Pixar is at a point where it needs little marketing in order to encourage moviegoers to flock to its films. It is a characteristic that other studios would kill for – the ability to draw people in droves based on a brand alone. Still, that doesn’t mean you won’t see trailers, posters, and TV ads for Pixar films. A new television spot for its next film, Inside Out, has been released – you can watch it after the break!
Often times, Pixar has its employees create special sequences and animation tests to utilize in marketing campaigns, leaving much of the films a secret until their release dates. It is a great way to introduce the characters and story without giving away too much. In the newest sneak peek at the film, we get snippets of the latest trailer, but we also see pieces of some new sequences, specifically of the dreaded brain freeze. It really displays just how stunning the animation is that is coming out of Pixar these days.

Inside Out synopsis:
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, directed by Pete Docter, arrives in theaters on June 19th!
