Inside Out trailer confirms the world’s happiness revolves around Pixar movies


Seems like it’s been an eternity since we’ve seen a new Pixar trailer. Thankfully, this look at 2015’s Inside Out finally puts an end to the drought…

Did you feel that? The uncomfortable sensation you’re experiencing right now stems directly from this being the first summer since 2005 without a Pixar movie. I know, I’ve got the jones, too. That delay is the result of fired directors, cancelled projects, and other unforeseen shake ups at the otherwise squeaky-clean studio, but fortunately for all of us, it look as if that CG dry spell is coming to an end. And unfortunately, that life-giving rain will not hit our foreheads in almost a full year. Pencil June 19th into those calendars, because today we’re finally getting a new look at Pixar’s latest film, Inside Out.

Not unlike those early Wall-E teasers, Pixar’s tugging your heartstrings with its past in order to tell you about its future, which is only a shame because I really wanted to see more of footage of the new film, consarnit! I’ve always said Pixar is the goddamn best at finding the right people to provide their voices, usually finding an un(der)sung funny people to fill their animated shoes, as opposed to other animation studios who tend to cast the biggest possible marquee talent whether or not they best suit the characters. Sad though it may seem, Pixar provides the only universe where comic talents like Dave Foley, Patton Oswalt, Craig T. Nelson and Albert Brooks get to headline movies. Inside Out looks to be the wonderful culmination of that practice, with Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black, Bill Hader, and Phyllis “Phyllis” Smith starring as personified emotions inside a little girl’s brain, the last of which I fell immediately in love despite never saying a word. Also love that Lewis Black basically looks like he’s playing Super Meat Boy’s Dad! 2014 cannot die a fast enough death, IMO.

  1. Pixar is the best and they fucking know it! This trailer was nothing but them stroking their dicks in front of the entire world. No one else could release a trailer for their next movie that’s essentially just a trailer for all of their past movies.

    1. Well… I think that while they’re selling it as a “Major Emotion Picture” the comic talent involved leads me to believe this might be a brief departure from trying to break your heart, and something more akin to a full blown comedy. And for that alone I AM EXCITE

      1. They got a day of the dead thing and incredibles 2 in the works, that sounds exciting, but Disneys Wreck it Ralph really turn the tide for my love of pixar over disney works.
        Wasnt a big fan of Up past the first ten minutes, Cars 2, Toy Story 3, Monsters University, brave(which is an awful lot like brother bear).
        Incredibles, Ratatouille and Wall-E probably my favs and its been a long time since they came out, they need to do something fresh, and this is fresh I guess but its also a bit too abstract and simple, for my interest, personified emotions and what not.

        1. I don’t know, I loved Up and Toy Story 3 which are very well regarded, and Monsters University I think gets a bad rap because it’s a prequel – I actually think it’s really good.

          And yes, the Day of the Dead movie sounded great but The Book of Life is gonna be way too similar so I wouldn’t be surprised if it got cancelled.

  2. I am confused, so Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur are both Pixar and both coming out next year? And so is the Finding Nemo Sequel none of us asked for/wanted? Or is The Good Dinosaur just Disney?

  3. The first part of the trailer reeked of “Hey look people!? Remember when we used to be great a few years ago? please don’t forget about us!” kind of desperation, at least to me. Which is a shame because I really do like most of what Pixar up until Toy Story 3, but that reel felt like something a company would do when they are no longer confident of their current skills or products anymore, and instead try to appeal to their glorious past.

    That being said, what little was shown about the actual movie did look pretty neat, and it actually feels like a premise more in line to the golden days of Pixar, than the disappointing or mediocre crap they had been farting out in the past 3 years. So here’s hoping this will be more “Ratatouille” and “UP” and less “Brave” or “Monsters U”.

    1. Toy Story 3 was the last really good Pixar movie. Everything since has seemed muddied to the point that you can’t really get angry at people for not knowing the difference between a Pixar movie and a Dreamworks or Disney CG movie anymore.

      1. Agreed. And even before Toy Story 3 had come out, they released the travesty that is cars, which to me is THE movie that heralded the mediocre slump they are currently in. Cars was the first Pixar movie that just wasn’t original, creative or smart enough to be on par with the rest, and the first movie that could have been made by Any other animated studio out there.

        Which is why I am reassured a bit by this new movie, since the premise and setting of it definitely feel unique and quirky enough, and something that’s definitely more along the lines of the Pixar I love. Now, whether this translates into a movie of such quality is a different matter, but one can hope. I really do miss old creative, non-sequel pumping Pixar.

  4. Confirmation that this movie is being run on the PS2’s emotion engine. It really can do Toy Story graphics!

  5. Aaaaand now I have the urge to drink several beers while diving into my collection of Pixar flicks.

    This won’t end well.

  6. When I was at the D23 show last year, this was the movie that easily got the best reaction out of the theater crowd when they showed it. Needless to say i’m pretty hyped.

  7. That retrospective was definitely aimed at the non-tots. There was only like one frame from Cars (Bug’s Life, too).

    This could be great. It was a bit odd that it said “This Summer”….
