Did you know it has become the fastest animated film to reach $1 billion in revenue and the 12th-highest-grossing animated movie ever made?

Amazing, right? 

But if you haven’t checked out the first movie, I urge you to watch it on your phone, TV, or laptop now!

But before I give you a sneak peek of the new movie, let me quickly summarize the first one. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil anything if you haven’t seen it yet!

Inside Out

“Inside Out” is a popular animated movie by Pixar that takes us into the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley.

The movie, released in 2015, shows Riley’s emotions – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust – as they navigated her thoughts when her family moved from Minnesota to San Francisco.

When Riley’s family relocates, her emotions are in turmoil. Joy tries to keep things positive, while Sadness causes problems, and they both get lost in Riley’s mind.

With Joy and Sadness gone, Anger, Fear, and Disgust take over and make things worse for Riley. The film gives us a tour of Riley’s mind – from the Headquarters where her emotions live to the Train of Thought, Dream Productions, and her long-term memories. We also meet Riley’s imaginary friend, Bing Bong, who is both funny and sad.

Ultimately, Inside Out shows us that all our emotions, even the tough ones like sadness, are important for a full life. Joy learns it’s okay to feel sad and ask for help. The emotions work together to help Riley adapt to her new life.

What makes Inside Out really special is how it shows the universal experience of growing up, with its ups and downs. We all experienced or will experience it at some point, and that’s okay. It’s a touching reminder that our emotions, even messy, make us human.

Now, there’s a sequel called Inside Out 2. 

In this movie, Riley is back and experiencing the challenges of being a teenager. Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust are present, but there are also new emotions like Anxiety, Embarrassment, Envy, and Ennui. 

When Riley’s best friends change schools, Anxiety wants things to change, causing a lot of problems. Envy, Ennui, and Embarrassment also join in, making things even crazier inside Riley’s head.

According to Anxiety, Riley has to change completely to handle the challenge of hockey camp.

As Riley’s mind adjusts to these new emotions, the movie looks at how to deal with change and grow while staying true to oneself. The emotions have to learn to work with the new ones.

The movie ends on a touching note. Overall, Inside Out 2 is a great, funny, and touching sequel. It can help young people think about and deal with their feelings. It shows that it’s okay to feel and show emotions, and being genuine means accepting all of who you are.

I watched it, and it made me quite emotional, too. I’ve also read posts about other fans liking the movie because it showed the difficulties of growing up and why taking care of your emotions is important. 

So if you loved the first movie, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one too! But if you’re new, prepare yourself because you’re in for a ride!
