Details on Pixar's brain-centric movie Inside Out were revealed today at a D23 Expo presentation. The film will be helmed by Up's Pete Docter, and will take place entirely inside the mind of a child. After a string of hit or miss sequels, it's really great to see Pixar back to doing what they do best: making weird little movies with big potential.
Docter was on hand to announce the stars of the film, and the casting is pretty much perfect. Lewis Black is set to play Anger (yes yes yes!), Mindy Kaling will portray Disgust, Bill Hader will be Fear, Amy Poehler will be Joy, and Phyllis Smith will be Sadness. That sounds like one hell of a cast.
Docter and producer Jonas Rivera also revealed that the movie will feature multiple "areas" of the brain including a theme park-esque Imagination Land to a Dream Production facility. Characters will travel between these regions using the Train of Thought.
Inside Out is currently scheduled for June 19, 2015.
