Inside Out 2: UK trailer and release date

The friendly family of feelings we met in 2015’s Inside Out are back—with some new emotions in tow, because puberty’s a bitch.

When is Inside Out 2 being released in the UK?

Inside Out 2 hits UK cinemas on June 14, 2024.

What is Inside Out 2 about?

Let’s go to the official synopsis!

Inside Out 2 returns to the mind of newly minted teenager Riley just as headquarters is undergoing a sudden demolition to make room for something entirely unexpected: new Emotions! Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust, who’ve long been running a successful operation by all accounts, aren’t sure how to feel when Anxiety shows up. And it looks like she’s not alone.”

The cast of Inside Out 2

We’ve got Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear (replacing Bill Hader from the first film),  Liza Lapira as Disgust (replacing Mindy Kaling), and Maya Hawke as Anxiety, the first of what appears to be whole panoply of new emotions we’re gonna meet. Interestingly, there’s no mention if the cast who voiced the human characters in the first film are returning—whither Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan?

Why we’re excited about Inside Out 2

Look, it’s been a quiet few years for Pixar, apart from the surprise slow-burn success of ElementalToy Story 4 was their last unqualified commercial and critical success, and that was five years ago. But everyone loves Inside Out, so a return to that well is welcome. Taking the characters through the onset of adolescence is a stroke of genius, as is the addition of lovable goofball Maya Hawke to the voice cast. If there’s a caveat, it’s that Inside Out is so elegantly constructed and conceived that elaboration will be a disservice, but we’ll roll the dice nonetheless. And if they somehow manage to bring back Richard Kind’s Bing Bong, there won’t be a dry eye in the house.
