Inside Out 2: Meet the New Emotions Tackling Teen Turmoil – Coming to Theaters June 2024

In a captivating reveal, Disney and Pixar have ushered in a wave of excitement with the release of a new trailer and poster for the much-anticipated ‘Inside Out 2‘. The upcoming animated sequel invites audiences back into the mind of now-teenager Riley, who is set to encounter an array of fresh Emotions that resonate with her adolescent journey. Under the direction of Kelsey Mann and production by Mark Nielsen, the feature film is slated for exclusive theatrical release on Friday, June 14, 2024, with Andrea Datzman returning to provide the musical score.

The established cast of Emotions will welcome new members, promising to add depth to Riley’s ever-evolving persona. Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Phyllis Smith, Tony Hale, and Liza Lapira will reprise their roles as Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear, and Disgust respectively. They will be joined by an ensemble perfectly tailored to reflect teenage complexities:

  • Anxiety, portrayed by Maya Hawke, is set to stir the pot within headquarters, bringing an edge to Riley’s emotional landscape with her relentless anticipation of negative outcomes.
  • Envy, voiced by Ayo Edebiri, might be diminutive in size but she’s mighty in aspiration, often caught coveting the possessions and situations of others.
  • Adèle Exarchopoulos lends her voice to Ennui, embodying the epitome of teenage indifference with her apathetic demeanor.
  • Embarrassment, characterized by Paul Walter Hauser, stands out with his burly presence and a complexion that lights up in a tell-tale pink hue during those awkward moments.

Adding to the dynamic, Kensington Tallman steps into the shoes of Riley Andersen, who is on the cusp of high school adventures, while Lilimar voices Valentina “Val” Ortiz, the high school hockey prodigy admired by Riley and her friends. The film also sees Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan returning as Riley’s supportive parents. Sumayyah Nuriddin-Green and Grace Lu will voice Riley’s closest companions, with Yvette Nicole Brown as Coach Roberts, the summer hockey camp’s head.

The star-studded voice cast further includes names like Sarayu Blue, Flea, Ron Funches, Dave Goelz, James Austin Johnson, Bobby Moynihan, Frank Oz, Paula Pell, Paula Poundstone, John Ratzenberger, Kendall Coyne Schofield, June Squibb, Kirk Thatcher, and Yong Yea, among others.

As fans await the theater premiere, they can revisit the emotional rollercoaster of the original ‘Inside Out’ movie, currently available for streaming on Disney+. The sequel promises to deliver another heartfelt journey through the complex maze of the human mind, continuing the legacy of its predecessor with a new twist tailored to the trials of teenage life.
