First 'Inside Out' plot details revealed


Riley isn't the only one with conflicting emotions.

It's been over four years since Inside Out -- the next project from Pixar -- was revealed. Now we finally have some plot details, and they...sound like somebody at Pixar has been digging around in DreamWorks' garbage.

From the Pixar site:

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.

Look, that's one hell of a cast. And director Pete Docter is the mastermind behind Up, arguably the best Pixar movie. But, just looking at this synopsis, the movie could very well be a low-rent Osmosis Jones. And it's not hard to guess some of the plot points: all of the emotions will probably have to be really brave and do something that goes against their nature, and Joy will be depressed somewhere around the end of Act II.

The Golden Age of Pixar is well behind us, so I'm not going to get my hopes up about this. But hey, maybe it'll be great!
