First look at Riley in Pixar’s Inside Out

28 August 2014 12:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s still the best part of ten months to go before we get to see Inside Out, the next film from Pixar, but Disney has given us our first look at the main character of Riley thanks to a featurette released on the online service Disney Movies Anywhere…

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, »

Get your first look at Riley from Pixar's 'Inside Out'

27 August 2014 1:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We've been hearing about Pixar's upcoming "Inside Out" -- one of two films being released by the studio next year -- for some time, but we haven't seen much from the film.  The film takes places inside the mind of a pre-teen girl named Riley, where her various emotions come to life via the voices of such funny people as Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith and Amy Poehler. Pixar and Disney previously released an image depicting those characters inside her head, but below is our first look at Riley's exterior; she looks like a Pixar kid. Maybe she's Andy's cousin? Here's the full image: "Inside Out" was directed by Pixar vet Pete Docter ("Up," "Monsters Inc."). "Inside Out" opens June 19, 2015. »

Check Out This New Image From Pixar’s Inside Out

27 August 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We likely have to wait until Disney’s Big Hero 6 hits theaters this November to see a trailer for Pixar’s newest feature, Inside Out, but today we have our first official image of the film to tide us over.

The photo features 11-year old girl Riley, whose mind acts as Inside Out‘s main focus. Riley’s family is moving cross country, and the stress from the move throws off her emotions, which actually act as the main characters: Joy (Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler), Anger (comedian Lewis Black), Distrust (The Mindy Project and The Office actress Mindy Kaling), Fear (SNL and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs alum Bill Hader), and Sadness (The Office‘s Phyllis Smith).

We’ve already seen some concept art for the film, featuring the character designs for the emotions, but this is our first look at Riley herself. It may not »

First Look at the Outside Riley from Pixar’s Inside Out

27 August 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In Pixar's upcoming film Inside Out, a group of emotions— Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger (Lewis Black)—guide the life of an 11-year-old girl, Riley Anderson.  We previously saw the emotions, and now a brief featurette on Disney Movies Anywhere has provided the first look at Riley.  As you'd expect, she's an adorable little girl, but it's important to remember she's almost a supporting character in this story.  The plot involves Riley moving to a new town and a new school, which forces Joy and Sadness away from the control panel and into the far, unfamiliar reaches of her mind.  No disrespect to the studio's recent movies, but Inside Out easily looks like one of Pixar's most exciting projects in years. Hit the jump to see the first Inside Out image of Riley.  The film opens June 19, 2015. Via Disney Movies Anywhere »

Pixar's 'Inside Out': First Look at 11-Year-Old Riley

27 August 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While The Good Dinosaur was originally set to be Disney Pixar's next animated adventure, that movie ran into a couple of production hiccups, which pushed Inside Out to the front of the line. Following an 11-year-old-girl's emotions, quite literally, as they run amok inside her brain, Disney Pixar have released the first photo of Riley. Here she is at the dinner table, obviously overcome by Joy (Amy Poehler).

This latest look at Inside Out comes courtesy of the Disney Anywhere app. They have a new clip which features test animation. To watch, you'll need to download the Disney Anywhere: clickHere

Director Pete Docter had this to say about the upcoming animated adventure, which he assures is very different from anything Pixar has released in the past.

"The idea to be honest really came from me thinking, what can animation do that we haven't tried yet? What if we stay more »

First Look: Pixar's 'Inside Out' Reveals the Girl Outside of the Mind

27 August 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

So far, we've only seen a brief glimpse of Pixar Animation's forthcoming movie Inside Out. The film follows a little girl named Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job all the way in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions are the only first look we've gotten at the 2015 release from Pixar, and they're a big part of the movie as they live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Now we finally have the first image of Riley in the film as well, though we're still not sure who is voicing her. The below images are screencaps of a video (via SlashFilm and Pixar Times) that is only »

Pixar’s Inside Out: First Look at Riley

27 August 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Not much has been officially released for Pixar’s Inside Out. The GeekTyrant staff did get a sneak peek at the film during D23, but other than that, they've kept a tight lid on it. But now we have a look at main character/setting, Riley.

Inside Out takes place inside of the mind of a young tween named Riley. Each facet of her emotions is expressed as individual characters Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), and Anger (Lewis Black). This team of emotions work together to help Riley as she adjusts to living in a new city. Inside Out is written and directed by Pete Docter whose last film, Up, was emotionally resonant and fun.

Pixar's 'Inside Out' has strong personal and emotional origins for director Pete Docter

20 June 2014 12:11 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

For the first time in nearly a decade, Pixar Animation Studios is taking the year off. The Emeryville-Calif.-based company will not be releasing a film in 2014, and it also finds itself in an interesting position, striving to maintain its identity as a haven for bold original visions while at the same time seeing some of its biggest successes inevitably move into franchise and sequel terrain. Wednesday night representatives of the studio took over a theater in West Hollywood's Directors Guild of America (DGA) headquarters to present materials from one such original vision from "Monsters, Inc." and "Up" director Pete Docter: "Inside Out." The film is set for release exactly one year from now, on June 19, 2015. Producer Jonas Rivera quipped that such a seemingly long lead is "dog years" in animation time, where projects typically move at a glacial pace for years on end. When he and Docter finished »

New Info and Footage Description for Pixar's Inside Out

12 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Last month we got a new synopsis for Pixar's upcoming animated feature Inside Out. It gave us a few new details on what we will see in the story, but today we have even more info on the movie to share with you thanks to Variety.

They were on hand at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in southern France, where director Peter Docter screened a couple of scenes from film and also talked a little about it.

The story follows a 12-year-old girl named Riley and centers on the emotions inside of her head as she deals with moving to a new place. The director says that "Riley is not our main character; she is our setting.” He also reveals that the story is "based on a strong emotional experience I had watching my daughter grow up. There is something that is lost when you grow up."

Pixar's 'Inside Out' Will Travel Through the Imagination, Nightmares and Abstract Thought

11 June 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, Pixar released the first plot details for their upcoming animated feature Inside Out, which centers on an all-star voice cast portraying the emotions inside an 11-year-old girl named Riley Anderson, such as Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). Director Pete Docter shed even more light on the story during an hour-long presentation at the Annency International Film Festival in France yesterday, which he described as the most high-concept idea ever to come out of the hallowed halls of Pixar.

The filmmaker screened the first five minutes of the movie, most of which was still in animatic form, which introduces viewers to Riley as a baby, along with all of her emotions, which all live inside her brain at a base known as Headquarters. The emotions all watch as Riley gets her first memory, which they can bring up on a projection at Headquarters. »
