The Emotions are Getting Complicated in the Inside Out 2 Trailer
With puberty comes… Anxiety? The new Inside Out 2 trailer shows a brand new emotion that could complicate things for Joy and the gang.
The teaser starts with clips from the first film, set to that memorable musical score by Michael Giacchino. Joy reflects on the rapid growth of the protagonist, Riley saying, “Our little girl’s growing up so fast and things couldn’t be better.”
And of course, this moment of tranquil bliss is soon disrupted by a loud, blaring siren as an alarm labeled PUBERTY kicks into gear. Riley’s emotions from the first film — Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust, and Anger — are in understandable shock as their entire home is completely renovated and the newest emotion, Anxiety, introduces herself. She immediately apologizes for surprising the other emotions, saying “we wanted to make such good impression,” to which Disgust asks: “What do you mean ‘we’?”
To answer the question, the last part of the trailer could hold some clues. It features a line of text that initially says “the feel good movie of 2024”, but the word “good” quickly cycles through a range of emotions starting with the familiar “sad”, “angry”, “afraid”, “disgusted” and the new “anxious”, “envious”, “ennui”, and “embarrassed”.
Could Envy, Ennui, and Embarrassment be the other emotions Anxiety hinted at? We’ll find when the film premieres on June 14, 2024!
A mix of newcomers and returning cast members
While some of the original cast members have returned to reprise their roles (Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, and Lewis Black as Anger), newcomers Tony Hale and Liza Lapira take on the roles of Fear and Sadness respectively, replacing Billy Hader and Mindy Kaling from the original film. Maya Hawke voices the new character, Anxiety.
The film is directed by Kelsey Mann, and Meg LeFauve (who co-wrote the first film) returns as a writer for the second film.
