In just under 30 years of existence, Pixar has amassed an incredible amount of goodwill from audiences around the world, giving the studio more respect than any other film studio in Hollywood. In recent years, the universal praise that the studio usually garnered has wavered, with Toy Story 3 (2010) being Pixar’s last mega-success. Even though both Brave and Monsters University were quality films, this year’s spectacular Inside Out will be the film that reminds viewers that Pixar has no equal in the film business.

Going all the way back to Up‘s release in 2009, there has been no Pixar film I have been more excited for than the upcoming Inside Out. There’s a reason for that – both films were directed by Pete Docter, one of the animation studio’s premier directors. Last week, I had the privilege of visiting Pixar’s campus in Emeryville, California. While there, I watched the first hour from Inside Out, and I am happy to report that even though I walked in with the highest of expectations, I walked out fully impressed. [Read more…]

We’ve seen some trailers for Inside Out, but none like the one unveiled today. Watch it after the break! [Read more…]

The premise of Pixar’s next feature film, Inside Out, is easily one of the most creative we have seen from the studio. The story takes place inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, where we will meet the five characters that represent her emotions: Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust, and Fear. Although the film’s plot surrounds Riley, the emotions will be the true main characters, led by Joy, described by director Pete Docter as the emotion most significant to Riley. Get to know all five emotions after the break! [Read more…]
Inside Out is one of Pixar’s most highly-anticipated films in years for a number of reasons. The film is the first project from director Pete Docter, whose last film Up was a major hit with both critics and audiences around the world. Its release will also be two years following Monsters University, the last feature film from the studio, which amounts to the longest wait we have had to endure for a feature-length Pixar film since the two year wait between Toy Story 2 (Nov. 1999) and Monsters, Inc. (Nov. 2001). We have waited quite a long while for a teaser trailer for Inside Out, and it is finally here. Watch the ingenious footage after the break! [Read more…]
Last August, we found out that director Bob Peterson had been taken off The Good Dinosaur after the film apparently hit creative difficulties. A group of Pixar directors including Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3), Mark Andrews (Brave), John Lasseter (Toy Story), and the film’s original co-director Pete Sohn took over. We still do not know who took over as lead director (if anyone did, that is), but we hear that the film’s story has been overhauled. Find more details after the break! [Read more…]
At the D23 Expo last summer, Disney and Pixar previewed Inside Out, the next film from Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up), which takes us in the mind of a young girl. The main characters in the film will be her emotions, which should excite you because it is an ambitious idea for a film. In addition to seeing an early storyboard version of an incredible scene from the film, we learned who would voice the characters. After the break, take a peek of one of the great actors from the Inside Out recording booth!
Pete Docter has directed Monsters, Inc. and Up for Pixar, both of which are adored by fans and critics. When I learned he was working on a new project, I was excited to learn more. In 2011, the director shared the premise for his latest film, Inside Out, which would take us inside the human mind, later revealed to be that of a young girl. Today at the D23 Expo, Docter and Producer Jonas Rivera, delved deeper into the project, sharing brand new details and showing some mind-blowing storyboards. Read all about it after the break!
