Inside Out, a 2015 Pixar film, focuses on the personifications of human emotions that controlled people’s bodies like enormous mechs. A sequel was confirmed at D23 Expo, and while there aren’t many specifics yet, we do know that Amy Poehler will be back. Inside Out 2 will continue to center on Riley, the human girl from the original film who is now a teenager. There will allegedly also be new emotions introduced, but we don’t know who will play them or whether anyone else except Poehler will be returning.
Amy Poehler’s Joy and Phyllis Smith’s Sadness from The Office learned in the original plot that they couldn’t take care of everyone’s well-being on their own. Bill Hader played Fear, Mindy Kaling played Disgusted, and Lewis Black played Anger. Another extremely distressing scene was Big Bong, a fictional elephant-like character (Richard Kind). It was a tearjerker, we promise.
One of the significant Disney and Pixar-related announcements made at D23 today is this one. The first trailer for Hocus Pocus 2 debuted earlier in the day, and Jamie Lee Curtis (and maybe Jared Leto) joined the cast of the upcoming Haunted Mansion film. A new trailer for the upcoming live-action Little Mermaid was also unveiled.

Does Inside Out 2 exist?
Incredible news for admirers of hot animated daddies: Inside Out 2 will indeed be produced by Pixar.
What is the underlying message of Inside Out?
Inside Out serves as a timely reminder to accept the entirety of who we are, to allow ourselves permission to not always be “okay,” and to give people close to us time to process their own emotional awakenings. Instead of trying to push away painful emotions, we should embrace them in order, to be honest with ourselves and progress.
For whom is Inside Out designed?
It’s an animation of the feelings we all have that is incredibly astute and intelligent. But adults and children over the age of ten make up the film’s main demographic.
Riley has a mental disorder, but what one?
Riley appears to fit the DSM-5 (American Psychiatric Association, 2013) and ICD-10 criteria for someone with adjustment disorder (World Health Organization, 1992).
