Pixar In Real Life is a strange little series for Disney+, its a very tame prank show, where scenes from Pixar movies are played out in real life.
The first episode is based on Inside Out and in a New York park, passers by come across a “console” with lots of buttons in it. When they press the buttons, with the five core emotions, Anger, Fear, Disgust, Joy and Sadness, the people in front of the console start reacting, similar to how they would react in the movie.
We get to see a few different groups of park goers interacting with a few different couples, such as two guys discussing getting lunch, a mother and a daughter talking about going to college and a couple celebrating a birthday.
Watching the actors flip between the different emotions was fun, especially when the Anger button is pressed, but it does feel generally a light fluffy filler of a episode.
It’s a fun little episode and worth checking out, since its only about 5 minutes long, so it’s easy to just jump in and have a few laughs. It feels like something you might find on YouTube, its simple but effective. I’m looking forward to seeing how this series pans out, some might work better than others.
