The first teaser for Disney Pixar’s follow-up to the phenomenal smash Inside Out from 2015 has been released. A few years after the events of the first movie, Riley, the main character in the second movie, becomes 13 and begins to feel all the new feelings that come with being a teenager, chief among them being anxiousness.
The teaser starts out with a brief synopsis of the first movie, showing viewers how Riley and her feelings—which are symbolized by Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust—learned to adapt to her new existence in a new place. Next, snippets from the sequel are shown in the teaser, starting with a scene in which Riley and her parents celebrate Riley’s 13th birthday.
Anxiety then appears as a new feeling. She is nervous to say or do the wrong thing, which is why she is orange. He makes a suggestion that additional feelings could surface as well.
The official synopsis of the film stated: The little voices inside Riley’s head know her inside and out—but next summer, everything changes when Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 introduces a new Emotion: Anxiety.
Director Kelsey Mann says the new persona will definitely cause a stir at headquarters. “Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke, might be new to the crew, but she’s not really the type to take a back seat,” averred Mann. “That makes a lot of sense if you think about it in terms of what goes on inside all our minds.”
Inside Out 2 by Disney and Pixar comes back to Riley’s imagination as the headquarters are being abruptly demolished to make way for something very different: new emotions! When Anxiety appears, the emotions that have long been in charge—Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust—don’t know how to react. It appears that she is not by alone.
Along with Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear, and Liza Lapira as Disgust, Maya Hawke provides the voice of Anxiety. Mindy Kaling was once the voice of disgust. Inside Out 2, which is produced and directed by Mark Nielsen and Kelsey Mann, will only be available in cinemas in the summer of 2024.
