Disney’s Inside Out is a movie that seems to have flown under the radar at my house. Then I received the first trailer of the film and I’m touched. Two of my children’s favorite animations from Disney are Monsters Inc and Up, Disney’s Inside Out is sure to be a hit with my kiddos as Academy Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) will take them to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.
The trailer is adorable with footage from some of our favorite Disney animation movies. Each clip shares an emotion we have each felt. I admit I teared up a little watching Sulley hug Boo goodbye, and Li’l Man giggled over the clips of “disgust”–go figure; boys!
· Director Pete Docter is the Academy Award®-winning director of “Up.” He made his directorial debut with Disney•Pixar‘s smash hit “Monsters, Inc.,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature film. Along with John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, Docter developed the story and characters for “Toy Story,” Pixar‘s first full-length feature film, for which he also served as supervising animator. He served as a storyboard artist on “A Bug’s Life” and wrote the initial story treatment for “Toy Story 2.” As one of Pixar Animation Studios’ key creative contributors, Docter garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original story credit on Disney•Pixar’s Golden Globe®- and Oscar®-winning “WALL•E.”
· Jonas Rivera produced the Academy Award®-winning “Up,” for which he was nominated for best picture.
