Pixar will return to the world of Inside Out 2 with a sequel to the Oscar-winning animation. The original 2015 film was set inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl, Riley, with her five main emotions personified as characters. It was a huge box office hit and won critical acclaim, so it’s little surprise that a sequel is heading our way.

Riley is now officially a teenager, but Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust are confident they can guide her through. After all, they got her through her big move to San Francisco a few years ago! But when headquarters undergoes a sudden, unexpected demolition, new emotions show up on the scene, including the jittery Anxiety. This might just be harder than they thought..
