Riley’s emotions are about to get more complicated in Inside Out 2. A new trailer for the upcoming Pixar animated sequel has unveiled a new emotion: Anxiety voiced by Maya Hawke.
The new trailer takes us back inside Riley’s mind as she becomes a teenager, and when a demolition crew shows up at headquarters, it looks as though things are about to change in a big way.
“Inside Out” follows Joy and Sadness embarking on an adventure through Riley’s mind, where they must figure out how to work together to make Riley settle into her new home and come to terms with the many emotions she’s feeling.
Back when it was first released, “Inside Out” received glowing reviews from critics and audiences alike, even receiving the 2016 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
The sequel was first announced in 2022 at Disney’s D23 Expo. Kelsey Mann directs, while Meg LeFauve, who co-wrote the first film, serves as writer for the second film as well.
“Inside Out 2” is set to release in theaters on June 14, 2024, almost nine years after the first film.
