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.
