With the amazing box office success of Pixar’s “Inside Out 2”, fans of the franchise won’t have to wait too long for their next instalment as last month it was revealed that a spin-off series called “Dream Productions” would be coming to Disney+ in 2025.

The first film was released back in 2015 and told the story of eleven-year-old Riley, who has moved to San Francisco, leaving behind her life in Minnesota. She and her five core emotions, Fear, Anger, Joy, Disgust and Sadness, struggle to cope with her new life.  And in the second film, everything changes when some new emotions, including anxiety, arrive, causing chaos for Riley.

While very little is known about the upcoming series, it was inspired by the scene from the first movie, where Riley’s dreams and nightmares are created. Dream Productions is built and staffed like a Hollywood Studio, and it’s where we are introduced to the Rainbow Unicorn and get to see lots of adventures within the first movie, such as the chase scene with the huge clown.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Pete Docter, the Chief Creative Officer at Pixar Animation Studios, confirmed that the “Inside Out “spinoff series will be coming to Disney+ in 2025.

We have finished. It’s coming out next spring. I’m not sure that there’s been a specific release date, but in the first film, remember we go to Dream Production to see how Riley’s dreams are made? It semi-explains why they’re so weird. We’ve continued the exploration of the power of dreams and how they affect us in our waking life, as well. So it’s pretty cool.

While the series might be finished, Disney won’t want to undercut the success of “Inside Out 2”; instead, it will give it the rest of the year to keep fans entertained.  It’ll only be available in cinemas for at least another three months before Disney makes it available on digital platforms for purchase.  Then it’ll no doubt become a huge streaming success when it eventually lands on Disney+, likely during the holidays.

Roger’s Take: Pixar has a bad habit of moving release dates, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if a spring launch gets delayed. However, I also feel fans should expect this to be a series of shorts rather than a full-length animated series, like Pixar, is releasing with “Win Or Lose” later this year.
