‘Inside Out’ Teaser Trailer: Pixar Gets Nostalgic

Pixar gets nostalgic in the first teaser trailer for their next animated movie Inside Out.

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.

From the montage of past Pixar movies in the beginning, they clearly want us to forget about Cars 2. It’s a cute collection of iconic moments, though, and a fun, quick game of Name That Pixar Movie. Being a teaser trailer, there’s not much to glean from the few seconds we actually get to meet Riley, but the premise sounds like it could be a fun and memorable classic, with probably more than a few tearjerkers.

Inside Out will be released in U.S. theaters on June 19, 2015.
