After young Riley is uprooted from her Midwest life and moved to San Francisco, her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness - conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Disney/Pixar is such a sure bet for me. I could not know a lot about one of their movies and will still go and see it.

Yeah, they aren’t always great (Cars and Cars 2) but they still manage to be entertaining.

Before I talk about Inside Out, I just want to give massive kudos to the short film that was shown beforehand. ‘Lava’ is beautiful, moving, entertaining and just a great story that is told in 7 minutes.


Now to talk about Inside Out.

The thing I love most about this movie is the voice cast. Amy Poehler (Joy), Phyllis Smith (Sadness), Bill Hader (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger) and Mindy Kaling (Disgust) are all amazing in this and held your attention.

The second best thing is the colour. There is so much colour in this, it’s visually stunning and full of detail.

This movie is entertaining to watch for both children and adults, so much detail in the animation, full of so much emotion and even a few tears (just a few!).

There was a point towards the middle where I did start to lose interest but it wasn’t long before I got back into the story.

Will definitely be buying this and watching it again when it’s released to own.
