The 2015 Pixar animated film Inside Out was a critical and commercial success, delving into the thoughts and feelings of a young girl named Riley. In the next installment, Riley is a teenager dealing with new experiences and feelings.
When exactly will Inside Out 2 be shown in theaters, and what can audiences anticipate from it? In this article, we will answer these questions and more, based on the available information and sources.
When is Inside Out 2 Coming Out?
On June 14, 2024—exactly ten years after the premiere of Inside Out—the sequel is set to open in theaters across America. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will handle distribution, so audiences can see the film in theaters and on Disney+ Premier Access.
The movie was first announced at the D23 Expo in September 2022, where Amy Poehler and director Pete Docter revealed the title and the premise of the sequel. The movie’s release date was pushed back from 2023 to 2024 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Hollywood strikes.
The movie’s teaser trailer5, which depicts Riley’s emotional response to the introduction of Anxiety to her mind, has already been released. The trailer also teases the novel situations in which Riley finds herself.
What is Inside Out 2 About?
In Inside Out 2, Riley and her emotions (Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust) continue their adventures through the ups and downs of adolescence. The movie will introduce a new emotion, Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke, who will cause trouble and conflict for Riley and the others.
As Riley navigates unfamiliar territory, the film will also touch on themes of self-discovery, friendship, family, and mental health. Riley, who has just turned 16, is described as “ready to take on the world” in the official synopsis1. Things get more complicated, however, when a new, unexplained emotion she calls “Anxiety” begins to make itself known to her.
Although Riley’s anxiety insists she is there for her own safety, she often acts counterproductively. Riley must come to terms with her evolving emotions and discover who she truly is as she navigates the competing demands of her academic and social lives.
