Prepare to be moved by a slew of emotions, since an Inside Out sequel may be on the way. Puck Story reported the news on Thursday, indicating that the project might be formally unveiled during Friday’s animation panel at this weekend’s D23 Expo. If the idea is approved, it will be the sequel to Pixar’s hugely popular 2015 film Inside Out, which followed the lives of five anthropomorphic emotions as they worked inside the head of a young girl called Riley. Amy Poehler played Joy, Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Bill Hader as Fear, Lewis Black as Anger, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, and Richard Kind as Bing Bong. Puck said that Kaling and Hader will not be returning for the sequel.
After Inside Out debuted to critical acclaim and over $800 million at the box office, people have speculated about the possibility of a sequel or follow-up. In 2016, Pixar President Jim Morris said that the firm will prioritize original projects over sequels to past films such as Inside Out, Ratatouille, and WALL-E.
“Most studios rush on creating a sequel as soon as they have a successful picture,” Morris told Entertainment Weekly at the time. “But our business model is a filmmaker model, and we don’t do a sequel unless the director of the first film has a concept that they like and are prepared to move ahead on.” “A sequel is more difficult [than the original] in some ways because you have this established universe that, on the one hand, gives you a leg up, but on the other hand, has expectations that you can’t fail on.”
“Inside Out director Pete Docter has an innovative concept for his next feature. Brad Bird, the filmmaker of Ratatouille, is now working on The Incredibles, and we haven’t really discussed [a sequel to] that. And WALL-E has a special place in my heart since I created it “Morris oversaw the 2008 Andrew Stanton-directed blockbuster. “It would be beneficial to return to that world and inform everyone that the humans survived after returning to their burned-out planet. But it was a love tale with a beginning, middle, and finish, so we’re not planning any further stories in those universes at the moment.”
