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 opens in theaters everywhere on June 19, 2015!

Oh, this looks really good. We’re big Disney and Disney/Pixar fans in our house. I’m sure we’ll be seeing this one in theaters.

I’m sure I will see this one at some point. I’m even more sure that my husband will see it. I’m not sure if it will be on the big screen or on on blu-ray. I like the trailer, and it looks well made, but there is nothing really pulling me to the theater. We’ll see…
