This coming Friday, Disney is releasing a brand-new animated film from Pixar, “Inside Out 2” in cinemas around the world.

The film 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, Envy, Ennui and Embarrassment show up.

Fandango has announced that they’ve sold more advance tickets for “Inside Out 2” than the original film, which came out in 2015, at the same point in the sales cycle, five days out from its theatrical debut.  Additionally, it’s been revealed that “Inside Out 2” is currently the highest Pixar film ticket pre-seller since “Toy Story 4” (2019), at the same point in the sales cycle.

Jerramy Hainline, EVP of Fandango, said in a statement:

“Inside Out united families and friends through shared emotions, and Inside Out 2 is doing it again by exploring new emotional depths.  Enthusiasm for the film is impressive as we prepare to dive back into the beloved world of Inside Out.”

The cast of “Inside Out 2” includes Amy Poehler, Maya Hawke, Kensington Tallman, Liza Lapira, Tony Hale, Lewis Black, Phyllis Smith, Ayo Edebiri, Lilimar, Grace Lu, Sumayyah Nuriddin-Green, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Paul Walter Hauser and Yvette Nicole Brown.

It’s been directed by Kelsey Mann, produced by Mark Nielsen and executive produced by Pete Docter, Jonas Rivera and Dan Scanlon. The film features a screenplay by Meg LeFauve and Dave Holstein and a story by Mann and LeFauve. 

“Inside Out 2” will be released in theatres on June 14th, 2024, and will stay in cinemas for at least one hundred days before it is made available at home through premium video on demand or Disney+.

Roger’s Take:  It’s great to hear tickets for “Inside Out 2” are strong, but it’s important to keep expectations realistic. Hopefully, the film does better at the box office than any Pixar movie in the past few years, as Disney is going all in on making sure “Inside Out 2” bucks the recent trend of underperforming films at the box office.  The first “Inside Out” movie made $858 million at the box office, and judging by the box office performance of any film so far in 2024, it would be a major achievement if “Inside Out 2” were to do a similar number.  

Do you think “Inside Out 2” will do well at the box office?  Let me know on social media!
