Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling to Star as ‘Joy’ and ‘Disgust’ in the New Pixar Film Inside Out
The Hollywood Reporter reported that the director of Pixar’s Academy Award-winning animated movie Up, Pete Docter, is back at it again with an upcoming film titled Inside Out. The animated feature, which has a June 9, 2015, release date, will take place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, with all the various emotions and character traits that exist inside of her. Buzzfeed calls the world inside Riley’s brain a “second setting [that] has a control center—something like The Truman Show.”
And best of all, the film already has an all-star comedy cast.
Boston-breds and comediennes Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling will lead the cast of emotions inside this girl’s mind as Joy (Poehler) and Disgust (Kaling). Very well suited, if you ask me. Also starring is Lewis Black as Anger, Bill Hader as Fear, and Phyllis Smith as Sadness.
