Back at last year’s D23 Expo, Pixar announced it was creating a sequel to the smash-hit film, “Inside Out”, which will see Amy Poehler return as the voice of Joy, who is one of the five core emotions of eleven-year-old Riley, who in the first film moves to San Francisco, leaving behind her life in Minnesota, which results in all five of her core emotions struggling to cope with her new life.

The new sequel will be directed by Kelsey Mann, produced by Mark Nielsen, and written by Meg LeFauve. It will be arriving in cinemas on June 14th 2025.

But this might not be the only project in development at Pixar featuring the characters from “Inside Out”, as Puck is reporting that Disney has tasked Pixar with upping the amount of content, it’s creating for Disney+. One of the projects currently in development is a big-budget series that the 2015 film has inspired.

No official details have been revealed about this upcoming potential series, but this won’t be the first series to be created by Pixar. This December, Pixar is releasing its first full series, “Win Or Lose”, on Disney+, and this week, it’s shown the first episode to attendees of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France.

Pixar’s latest film, “Elemental” has been released in cinemas in the US today, but unfortunately, the early box office number predictions are showing that the film is going to be struggling to compete with the competition from “The Flash”, “Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse”, “Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts” and “The Little Mermaid”. As many believe, during the pandemic, with films like “Soul”, “Luca”, and “Turning Red” being released directly onto Disney+, it has trained audiences to expect the latest Pixar content on Disney+.

Disney CEO Bob Iger is also pushing for Disney to push its core brands like Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar, focusing less on general entertainment and more on creating great content. So a new series featuring the emotions from “Inside Out” could deliver value to Disney+ subscribers and give Pixar an outlet to create new stories, especially as the box office success of animation films is very different from how it was before the pandemic and a new generation of kids have a different connection to how they watch films due to the success of streaming and devices.
