Hold on to your emotions, Disney fans! Pixar is about to tug at your heartstrings once again with the eagerly anticipated sequel, *Inside Out 2*. Ready to hit theaters on June 14, this emotionally charged film promises an extended theatrical run, allowing fans to enjoy it on the big screen for over three months before it heads to Disney+. In an age where movies often speedily transition to digital platforms, Pixar is taking a nostalgic step back, reinforcing the magic of the cinematic experience.

Pixar’s president, Jim Morris, shared in an interview with Bloomberg that this extended theatrical run reflects the studio’s intention to give their latest masterpiece the spotlight it deserves. “I hope that we will not release another feature film on Disney+,” Morris stated emphatically. “If we do more stuff for Disney+, it should be a series, creating a clear demarcation between our theatrical releases and streaming content.” This decision follows mixed success with their recent releases and feedback from their artists, who felt their work didn’t get the big-screen appreciation it merited.

Directed by Kelsey Mann, making his feature directorial debut, *Inside Out 2* boasts a script by Meg LeFauve. The film, announced at Disney’s D23 Expo in 2022, reintroduces us to a teenage Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) navigating the turbulent waters of adolescence. The familiar emotions of Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Tony Hale), and Disgust (Liza Lapira) return, joined by new faces like Anxiety (Maya Hawke) and Envy (Ayo Edebiri).

I’ve had the joy of previewing the first 35 minutes of this sequel, and let me assure you, it is Pixar at its finest! The movie delves deep into the complex emotions of a teenager, with new emotions adding layers of complexity and humor. Riley’s journey of trying to fit in and make sense of her world is both relatable and poignant, ensuring every viewing is as emotionally rewarding as the last.

So, will Riley and her emotional ensemble succeed in navigating the stormy seas of teenage life? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain — you won’t want to miss this cinematic experience.
