‘Inside Out’ Clip: What Would Joy Do?
Pixar has released another new clip from Inside Out, further showcasing the interesting dynamics between the many emotions running operations in Riley’s head, plus we get to (briefly) meet the emotions of Riley’s mom. As it turns out, no matter what age you are, your emotions are a bit frazzled and unsure of what to do.
That’s particularly the case in this scene, in which Riley’s Joy (Amy Poehler) has taken an absence, leaving Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kaling — such perfect casting) and Anger (Lewis Black) in charge. The trio take a WWJD? (What Would Joy Do?) approach, but even though they’re saying all the things Joy would say, the tone is all wrong. Similarly, the emotions in the head of Riley’s mom (Diane Lane) are feeling a bit insecure as they struggle to navigate these stand-offish responses.
Early reviews for Inside Out have been largely positive, indicating yet another vivid, thoughtful and emotional film from the world of Pixar. We seriously cannot wait for this one to hit theaters.
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.
Inside Out arrives on June 19.
