“Inside Out 2”: Information about the Release Date, the Story, the Trailer, the Real Actors and More

Inside Out 2, the sequel to Pixar’s 2015 Oscar-winning hit, is scheduled for release in the summer of 2024. Riley, who was 11 in the first film, is 15 in the sequel. She may be an old lady, but she still feels everything deeply.

As Inside Out 2 follows Riley through her adolescence, it will further develop the emotional world established by the first film.

Pete Docter, chief creative officer at Pixar, recently claimed that the sequel to Inside Out might feature as many as 27 different feelings.

Even though Riley’s emotions as a teen will be more nuanced than when she was younger, this would still be a significant increase in the number of characters from the five in Inside Out.

There are exactly 27 feelings required to convey the story of a child’s uncomplicated upbringing.

  • When will the “Inside Out 2” movie be out?

Release dates for other Disney projects, including Inside Out 2, were also disclosed by Disney executives at D23 Expo 2022.

The release date for Inside Out 2 is slated for June 14th, 2024. On this day (June 19, 2015), approximately nine years have passed since the first film was released.

If everything stays on track, the sequel to “Inside Out” will be Pixar’s 29th feature picture when it is finally released.

  • What is the plot details of “Inside Out 2”?

Details about the plot of the upcoming Inside Out sequel were also hinted at during the D23 Expo, which announced the film’s release date.

Even though Riley and her emotional squad will play major roles in the next film, it will focus on Riley as an adolescent and introduce new emotions.

An adolescent’s feelings are bound to be as fascinating to see as their baffling thoughts.

It’s the next logical step in the plot, and it should give other emotions, besides Joy and Sadness, more screen time.

  • Who else is returning for “Inside Out 2”?

Most of the cast is still a secret, but here’s what we do know so far.

Amy Poehler as Joy

Former Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler will reprise her role as Joy in a September 2022 film, Pixar has announced.

Cast as Mom, Diane Lane

The voice of Riley’s mom will be provided by Diane Lane, who was last seen in Y: The Last Man on FX.

Phyllis Smith as Sadness

Phyllis Smith, who won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her portrayal of Phyllis Vance on The Office, will reprise her role as Sadness.

As Angry Lewis Black

What good is a film about adolescent emotions if the protagonist never gets angry? Nothing, so Anger will be voiced by Lewis Black in the sequel.

  • What will the title of “Inside Out 2” be?

Inside Out 2 is the name of the new film. Pixar is well-known for its imaginative films and characters, plots, and animation, but for the sequel to “Inside Out,” the studio opted for a straightforward title.

  • Who would be the director of “Inside Out 2”?

Director Kelsey Mann, who previously contributed to Monsters University in various capacities, will helm Inside Out 2 for the first time from a script by Meg LeFauve. Mark Nielsen serves as the film’s producer.

  • Can we expect a sequel to “Inside Out?”

Inside Out and its sequel will continue the story of Riley and her emotions as she matures.

Unlike Toy Story 3, which skipped Andy’s teenage years in favor of his college years, Inside Out 2 will focus on Riley’s formative years.

Actually, most Pixar movies stay away from the audience that Inside Out 2 will be focusing on.

With a few outliers like Onward, most of the company’s films focus on young adults and older audiences.

Depending on how long the time jump is, the series could feel like one continuous movie.

  • Riley is how old in “Inside Out 2”?

In the sequel to Inside Out, Riley will be 15 years old. The new film focuses on how adolescents feel. At the end of the first film, Riley was 12 years old.

  • New feelings are introduced in “Inside Out 2”

“It was fascinating in many respects. Amy Poehler recently revealed in an interview that “we knew exactly where we were.” As the saying goes, “We go to the teen brain and see the madness that lives inside there.”

It’s not obvious what “madness” will entail, as Lewis Black’s Anger was already a character in the first Inside Out. It seems the new film will add to the decades-long conversation on normalizing mental health.

“A lot has happened since the first film in terms of the emotional intelligence and how we think about mental health and how our emotions can affect us physically, and what’s really going on inside our head,” Poehler said.

Inside Out 2 will introduce new feelings, while the specifics are still unclear.

  • Who won’t be back for the sequel to “Inside Out?”

Mindy Kaling

It has been revealed that Kaling, who provided the voice of Disgust, will not be returning for the sequel. “I enjoyed my time on the set of Inside Out very much, and I have no doubt that the sequel will also be a success.” However, Kaling recently revealed to The Wrap that she is not currently working on the project.

  • Does a trailer exist for “Inside Out 2”?

Inside Out 2 has yet to receive a trailer, but if the film follows the typical Pixar marketing timetable, we may see one when Elemental is released on June 16, 2023.

  • Can we see Inside Out 2 on Disney+?

Not at first, anyway. On June 14, 2024, audiences will be able to see Inside Out 2. After its limited theatrical release, it will most likely be available on Disney+. There is currently no availability information for streaming.

On December 20, 2024, a movie was released. While we wait for the official release date, why don’t you head here to check out more details on this film?
