Above is your first official look at Riley, the main character in Pixar’s upcoming 2015 release Inside Out. The film centers on the 11-year-old, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco and in this picture we’ll be taken inside this little girl’s mind where we’ll find five key characters in her emotional “Headquarters” — Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Fear (voiced by Bill Hader), Anger (voiced by Lewis Black), Disgust (voiced by Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith) — all of which are featured directly below.

This first look comes via Disney’s Anywhere app where director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera take us through the film’s production.






In addition to this, premiering in front of Inside Out will be a new Pixar short film Lava, the love story between two rather unique characters, those being a pair of volcanoes named Uku and Lele.

The seven minute short is directed by James Ford Murphy who tells Yahoo!, “We struggled with [the size of the lead character] a lot, but I feel like, once we were able to embrace the limitations of it, it unlocked all sorts of possibilities. I love that about animation: You can really make a mountain come alive. You can’t do that in another medium.”

Inside Out and Lava hit theaters on June 19, 2015.
