Everything We Know About “Inside Out 2” Following the New Trailer Release

Pixar has released a new teaser trailer and poster for “Inside Out 2,” the studio’s next theatrical release that’s set to hit theaters on June 14, 2024. The film is a follow-up to 2015’s “Inside Out,” which was a critical and commercial hit for the animation house.

The 90-second trailer starts with roughly 20 seconds of footage from the original movie before cutting to The Walt Disney Company and Pixar logos. The trailer then transitions to headquarters, where a blaring alarm has awoken Joy, Fear, Sadness, Anger, and Disgust. A demolition crew of small blue characters enters the command center, breaking a window with a wrecking ball before destroying objects, detonating explosives, and causing general chaos.

After the crew leaves, the five emotions from the original film stand over the control console, which now radiates an orange hue. The audience is then introduced to Anxiety, a new emotion that is the cause of the new console color. The new character says “We wanted to make such a good first impression,” indicating that additional new emotions will be introduced in the film.

The trailer ends with one of the film’s taglines: “The feel everything movie of 2024.”

The alluded-to new emotions are seen on the new poster. Joy, Fear, Sadness, Anger, and Disgust stand on a piece of reflective white flooring that’s being lifted by four new emotions (Anxiety is the only confirmed new emotion, while the other new characters are rumored to be Envy, Ennui, and Embarrassment).

“Inside Out 2” is directed by Kelsey Mann, who is making her feature directorial debut after previously working in the animation department on Pixar films such as “Onward,” “The Good Dinosaur,” and “Monsters University” as a story supervisor. The film is written by Meg LeFauve, who also penned the screenplay for the original movie.

Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, and Lewis Black reprise their roles as Joy, Sadness, and Anger, respectively. Tony Hale will replace Bill Hader as Fear while Liza Lapira will replace Mindy Kaling as Disgust. Maya Hawke, perhaps best known for her role as Robin Buckley in the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” will voice Anxiety.

Pixar has confirmed that “Inside Out 2” will return to the mind of Riley, the protagonist of the 2015 film, who is now a teenager and attempting to work through all of the issues that present themselves during that stage of life.
