Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Lava’ Details and Posters

Pixar’s absent from the 2014 theatrical release schedule, but the award-winning animation studio will be back in 2015 with Inside Out. Directed by Pete Docter and co-director Ronnie del Carmen, Inside Out will enter theaters on June 19, 2015 featuring a voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, and Phyllis Smith. Playing in front of Inside Out‘s theatrical release will be the short film, Lava, directed by James Ford Murphy.

A year out from seeing Inside Out and Lava in theaters, Pixar’s just released the official storylines and new art for each of the two animated films.

The Official Inside Out Plot:

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie Inside Out, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind. 

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.
