'Inside Out' Gets into 11-Year-Old's Head

Pixar Animation Studios released the trailer for its forthcoming "Inside Out" animated film, a funny account told through the five emotions of 11-year-old Riley Anderson. Set inside the tween girl's head, the story features characters named Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness. We also see inside the control room—aka, her parents' brains.

"Inside Out" answers the question of what goes on inside someone else's head—unfiltered, unfettered access to the thoughts of those we hate and those we are closest to. At least in the minds of the filmmakers.

The Andersons have recently moved from the Midwest to San Francisco, and everyone is still adjusting. In the process, Riley tries to get it together with her own emotions, voiced by Amy Poehler (Joy), Bill Hader (Fear), Lewis Black (Anger), Mindy Kaling (Disgust) and Phyllis Smith (Sadness). Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan voice Riley's parents.

Pete Docter directed the film. He told the Daily Mail it began as a movie about growing up, but wound up being a movie about watching his kids grow up.

Man, that's one empathic dad/director!
