Pete Docter Releases More Details on Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’


Pete Docter’s (Monsters Inc, Up) next film Inside Out is slated for 2015 as one of Pixar’s two releases (the other being Andrew Stanton’s Finding Dory). Docter has said that his next film is “one of the most challenging stories I’ve ever had to put together.”

The story for Docter’s film takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, and revolves around her emotions as the main characters: sadness, anger, joy, and disgust.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter yesterday at the computer graphics convention SIGGRAPH, Pete Docter said that the film required him creating two simultaneous stories. One story centering on the girl and the other about what is happening inside her mind. He went on to say, “One story is hard enough… This is two stories that need to talk to each other.”

Discussing the animation, he said:

“The characters are created with this energy because we are trying to represent what emotions would look like. They are made up of particles that actually move. Instead of being skin and solid, it is a massive collection of energy.”

“It’s a lot of fun and really takes advantage of what animation can do.”

Inside Out is currently slated to enter your mind in the U.S. on June 15, 2015.

I myself am super excited about all the possibilities this new film holds and can not wait to see it in just a few short years from now. How about you? Let us know in the comments below.
