Pixar from the inside to the outside gets a sequel. The news was announced at D23, Disney’s biannual fan convention.
The 2015 film followed the emotions personified by a young girl named Riley. Joy (Amy Poehler), sadness (Phyllis Smith), fear (Bill Hader), disgust (Mindy Kaling) and anger (Lewis Black) inhabit Riley’s mind and are responsible for her feelings as they help her navigate the complexities of growing up and moving to a whole new city. Tension mounts as joy and sadness collide, accidentally losing some of Riley’s core memories, and they must embark on a quest deeper into her mind to regain them. The film was directed by Pete Docter, who now serves as Pixar’s chief creative officer. It has been praised for dealing with emotions and memories in a variety of ways.
