Last week I posted the teaser for Pixar and Disney’s new film Inside Out. The animation Gods and Kings have bestowed a more lengthy trailer , released in June next year, and it’s looking like a great comical adventure centred on how our emotions come to play.
Disgust, Anger, Fear, Sadness and Joy – basic human emotions that Pixar can manipulate into a nice little package – but common sense tells me it will go beyond the smooth running of control desks and button pushing. People are more complex than that and Pixar are so good at conveying those complexities onscreen (almost too good) that I’m sure something major happens that throws these little creatures into disarray.
The central character is Riley, a child, so it’s safe to say there’ll be plenty of material to work through on that side of things. Commonly at a young and impressionable age we’re overwhelmed with choices and grapple to make sense of how we feel and why feel the way we do – it’s a formative period, so the raging emotions will probably get her into all sorts of scenarios. Looking forward to it.
