Inside Out – Riley’s Parents

We’ve learned a lot about the five emotions that drive Inside Out, but director Pete Docter recently talked about 11 year-old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) and her parents  (voiced by Kyle McLachlan and Diane Lane) with the USA Today.

 

Docter on the parents role in the film: “I started out doing a film about growing up, but it turned out it’s a film about me watching my kids grow up,” he said. “These parents are realizing that their kid is changing. That’s difficult. But it is a part of life.” “These guys are the pillars on both sides. They are pivotal parts, knowing how joyful this kid Riley used to be and the young woman she’s changing into.”

On the emotions: “We’re intercutting to show what’s going on inside each of their heads behind the scenes,” reveals Docter. “What seems like a simple family dinner is actually fraught with all sorts of emotional angst and drama.”

Inside Out will be released on June 19, 2014.

Inside Out – Full Trailer

YouTube Preview Image

Disney-Pixar has released the first full trailer for Pete Docter’s Inside Out. It’s exclusive in the U.S. to iTunes right now, but you can watch the UK trailer above. Some of the footage dates back to D23, but plenty is new. It’s basically just one scene and I think that’s a great way to avoid spoiling too much, too soon. Enjoy!

French Canadian Poster

I really love these International Posters for Pete Docter’s Inside Out. Above is the French Canadian and below are the Spanish, Canadian, UK and French posters. The marketing for the film so far has been great. A nice focus on the characters without giving away too much plot or footage. Keep it up!

Toy Story 4 Dated…Ho hum…

Disney-Pixar officially announced that Toy Story 4 is coming June 26, 2017. That’s not a surprise, but the fact that John Lasseter will direct is a bit of a shocker. I’ve got to stay that this is not good news in my eyes. I feel like the trilogy ended things perfectly and there really wasn’t anything left to say (that some Toy Story Toons couldn’t achieve). It sounds like the Pixar Brain Trust has cooked up a good premise, but I can’t help but feel bummed about it.

That being said, it’s called the movie business, and Disney-Pixar is not going to walk away from a franchise when Toy Story 3 made a billion dollars worldwide.

Here’s the press release:

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND!

Nearly two decades after Pixar Animation Studios created the world’s first computer-animated feature film with “Toy Story,” it revealed plans for Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” an adventure that returns audiences to the world of the studio’s signature characters.

John Lasseter, director of the original “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” will direct the film, which opens a new chapter in the lives of Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the “Toy Story” gang. The story was dreamt up by Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich, the storytellers who have been the driving force behind all three “Toy Story” films.

“We love these characters so much; they are like family to us,” said Lasseter. “We don’t want to do anything with them unless it lives up to or surpasses what’s gone before. ‘Toy Story 3’ ended Woody and Buzz’s story with Andy so perfectly that for a long time, we never even talked about doing another ‘Toy Story’ movie. But when Andrew, Pete, Lee and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. It was so exciting to me, I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself.”

Writing team Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste and Jesse Forever”) joined the project, and Pixar veteran Galyn Susman (ABC’s “Toy Story OF TERROR!” and “Toy Story that Time Forgot”) is producing.

The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.
