‘Inside Out’ Trailer Reaction

The Pixar that many once loved, even revered, has struggled to attain the critical acclaim it once had with films like Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Up. After  the releases of Cars 2, Brave and Monsters University, the Pixar that many once met with wide-eye enthusiasm has now been replaced with a general feeling of apathy. Still, that’s not to say Pixar can’t recover from their more recent cinematic flubs. That’s where Inside Out comes in. With a release date of June 19, audiences can expect to see a humorous animated take on the emotions that guide us every day this summer.

While the idea of little amphomorphic versions of emotions has been done ad nauseam, the premise of Inside Out still looks like it could be a lot of fun.


So, the trailer is pretty short and spends most of its time to referring back to Pixar’s most beloved films, and Cars. What is shown is the teenage protagonist, Reilly (Kaitlyn Dias), and her five most used emotions. Joy (Amy Pohler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Anger (Lewis Black) and Fear (Bill Hader) are given their own introductions, and each is an obvious representation of their name.

It’s hard to deny that Inside Out looks cute with its multi-colored animated cast.  Plus, literally peering into the mind and being of a young adolescent girl is definitely a first for Pixar (Yes, I know how creepy that sounds). Even with so little footage shown, I’m still interested in what Pixar can offer. This is the studio behind some of the greatest and most heartwarming films of all time. There’s no reason they can’t achieve that greatness once again.
