Things are getting messy! Next Summer Disney and Pixar will take us back to Riley’s head with Inside Out 2. Riley is now a teen, big changes lie ahead and guess what, new emotions arise. It’s time to meet the new one…Anxiety and watch the first UK Trailer!
The emotions voice cast includes Maya Hawke who lends her voice to Anxiety, alongside Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear, and Liza Lapira as Disgust. The latter two actors replace Bill Hader and Mindy Kalling who couldn’t commit due to scheduling conflicts.
When your are teen, it’s all about puberty. Riley’s hormones will be driving her crazy and what perfect way to introduce the new emotion. Disney clicked perfectly with Turning Red, have they done it again?
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. According to director Kelsey Mann, the new character promises to stir things up within headquarters. “Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke, might be new to the crew, but she’s not really the type to take a back seat,” said Mann. “That makes a lot of sense if you think about it in terms of what goes on inside all our minds.” A trailer, poster and film stills are now available for what promises to be the feel-good (or feel-everything) film of Summer 2024.
Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2” returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust, who’ve long been running a successful operation by all accounts, aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety shows up. And it looks like she’s not alone.
Inside Out 2 will be playing in our heads in Summer 2024.
