Trailering More Inside Out from Pixar

Pixar is definitely back with Pete Docter’s Inside Out (June 19), already touted as the one to beat for the Oscar. The second trailer delves into the conflict between Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness  (Phyllis Smith) and what happens when a core memory inadvertently gets tampered with.

This could be Pixar’s most profound movie in its exploration of how the mind works metaphorically, and going imaginatively inside the mind has allowed Docter and Pixar to embrace hand-drawn animation more fully than ever before (with a nod to Disney’s Milt Kahl and Warner Bros.’ Chuck Jones and Tex Avery, among others). The world is an elaborate candy-colored theme park that’s part “Small World” and part Apple.  Docter told me that Inside Out is really told from a grown up point of view. In other words, it’s really about Joy and Sadness learning to co-exist in all of us.
