Pixar is no stranger to telling stories from unusual perspectives. Some of the animation studio’s best-loved and most successful movies have been not-so-unusual tales told from the point-of-view of unexpected characters—like a story of growing up told from the forgotten toys in the bottom of the toy box in the “Toy Story” movies, or the story of a celebrity athlete learning life’s not all about living in the fast lane, told from the perspective of a racecar in “Cars.”
This summer, Pixar did it again with its newest film, “Inside Out.”
“Inside Out” is the story of an eleven-year-old girl named Riley who moves with her parents from Minnesota to San Francisco… but it’s Riley’s story told through the lens of her five animated emotions—Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust—who live inside her brain.
