Jun 11 (TheWrap.com) - The brain behind Inside Out gave the world its first extended look at a feature film all about the human mind.
Pete Docter presented concept art, some working footage, and a deeper plot synopsis at a panel at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on Tuesday. The Oscar-winning director of Up explained that the film follows the life of a young girl as she learns to experience feelings and deal with the real world; sort of like in Up, the beginning of the film shows her early years, with color-coded and anthropomorphized emotions popping up based on corresponding events.
At PixarTimes.com, a reader sent in a description of the early montage that was shown to audiences at the festival:
Joy is her first emotion. Joy seems happy on her own, but then sadness appears. When Riley is being fed broccoli, Disgust appears. When her father threatens no dessert without eating her broccoli, Anger makes an appearance. Fear is introduced when she looks at a cable on the floor cautiously and then steps over. We also see the emotions watching her first important memory appear. Memories can be called up for Riley to recall on a sort of projection in Headquarters.
