We first caught a glimpse of the characters back in October when Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out debuted its teaser trailer, but it’s only now, courtesy of USA Today, that we learn Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan will be lending their voices to director Pete Docter’s June 19, 2015 release.
Set inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley, Inside Out knows that growing up can be a bumpy road. It’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco.
Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
Lane and MacLachlan will voice Riley’s parents (who, as previously reported have their own sets of emotions guiding them). The Oscar-nominated Lane is already known to fans for being a super-mom: she recently played Martha Kent in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and is expected to reprise the role for 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. MacLachlan, on the other hand, is currently playing a not-so-super comic book father on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Stay tuned on Wednesday, December 10 for the new trailer!
