Ever wonder why you feel the way you do? Why do you react to certain things one way and differently to others? Well, we all have emotions, right? They are what makes us humans! In the new Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out movie, personified emotions like Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) take center stage and give us a look into Riley’s (Kaitlyn Dias) human emotions. Get a sneak peek at Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out movie from their official trailer below.
Inside Out – Official US Trailer
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.
Last week, my family and I had the opportunity to catch a pre-screening of the movie and today I want to share with you our Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out movie review. At home, we are all huge fans of Disney and Pixar movies; therefore, we knew from the previews that we were going to love Inside Out. To kick off this movie, Disney/Pixar did it again by introducing us to a new short film, Lava (see a short clip of it at the end of this post). At the start of Inside Out, we are introduced to Riley and her parents, who are making their way into a new city. We are also introduced to Riley’s emotions and their command center inside Riley’s brain. Each of Riley’s emotions is in charge of an specific emotion, which in turn shapes Riley’s personality. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to her new life, school, and friends, things begin to unravel.
Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to maintain a sense of calmness. However, things quickly go wrong and in turn is up to Joy and Sadness to save Riley’s memories & emotions. The journey will not be easy but working as a team, with a little bit of optimism, a little help from friends and a bit of maturing, things will be back to normal.
As I said before, my three kids attended this movie screener with me and each of them had a different and similar reactions to this movie. My oldest son certainly understood the movie and the emotions involved in it, he had a few questions but overall, loved the movie. My second son, really liked the different emotion characters and the movie’s comedic scenes. My daughter, who is only 4, made a few remarks about the movie and expressed liking it. Win, Win, Win for this mommy. 🙂

As a mom, I loved that this movie shows that our daily lives are surely influenced by Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. Watching the movie also brings us back to when we were young and we had those weird dreams, or dislike something, or had an imaginary friend, or even felt a little Joy and Sadness at the same time. Yes, those things that we think about once in a while and that are part of our maturing and growing up. The movie is PG (Parental Guidance), it is super funny, with bright funny characters, and charming! Inside out is amazing, another big HIT from Disney/Pixar. I truly loved this movie, takes the kids to see it! Oh grown ups, bring a tissue paper or two for you!
