One of the best parts of our trip to San Francisco was screening Pixar Studios Inside Out. I feel this movie is chalked full of greatness for the young and old movie goers. Part of our visit we had a chance to sit down with the Director Pete Docter and Producer Jonas Rivera. These two guys have been a part of the Pixar team for a long time. They seem to work well together and are super funny.
One of our first questions for Pete and Jonas was in regards to dinner table scene. Most of our group wanted to know why the emotions looked different then Riley’s emotions. After a short laugh, their answer to us, simply for humor purposes, and a little clarity.
As a Dad, we are normally portrayed, to be a little edgy or angry. So when I asked my kids, what emotion I share the most or easiest, they said Anger. Part of me thinks that is not true. Pete and Jonas, explain that Anger isn’t always mad, he is protective of Riley and her feelings. So it makes scene, when Anger pops off is for a just reason. This makes me feel better about being labeled angry.
One of my friends asked want the most satisfying part of making this movie? Pete said “I love just making movies”… we have opportunities to do stuff we can’t do with other companies.” To me that is just sheer genius. These two guys make some of the best movies on shelves and digital content. It is no wonder Inside Out is going to be a sensation this month.
Here is a quick run down of Inside Out:
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, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
