Over the last few years, Pixar has been doing sequels to some of their greatest movies. Now while we love whatever Pixar gives us, they have always been at their best when they give us original films. A Bug’s Life, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and Up are just a few of many examples of great original films (while most are just now getting long awaited sequels). Toy Story 4, Finding Dory, and The Incredibles 2 are all coming our way soon, but that’s where Inside Out comes in.
Here’s a synopsis for Inside Out, followed by the new 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, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. 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.
This new trailer is freaking magic, man. It’s the type of trailer that I could watch over and over again without getting bored. For some time now I’ve heard that Disney and Pixar think this may be the best movie to ever come out of their camp. Out of all their phenomenal movies, this may be the one. Now that remains to be seen, but from this new trailer, I can see exactly why they think that.
A movie that digs deep into the mind and focuses on the emotions, I felt all those emotions watching this trailer. I grew up on Pixar movies, such titles like Toy Story and A Bug’s Life. And while I don’t think any animated movie can replace some of those for me, I don’t remember the last time I was this excited for an animated film. The new trailer only reaffirms why it’s so high on my 2015 list. Pixar, you’ve done it again.
P.S., the hockey game and brain freeze scenes!
