I was able to attend an advanced screening of the upcoming Disney Pixar Inside Out movie, and I have to say that it’s a must watch for families. This fun animated movie opens on Friday (June 19th) and it’s a great movie to use as a talking point about emotions with your kids. If you don’t know about the movie, here’s a preview of what it’s all about!
One of my favorite parts of the movie is the idea of Riley (the girl character) having “lands” that form her personality, and those lands are based on events and memories of her past. Such a great fit for my passion for encouraging families to create memories together!
The cast does an amazing job of portraying the major emotions of Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. You’ll fall in love with all of them, although if you’re like me you’ll want to duct tape Sadness to a chair after a few scenes. Here’s a fun look at the great cast who make up these emotional characters, see if you can match the actor with the emotion character…
If you’re a fan of Disney Pixar films, there are a few fun things I wanted to share with you before you head to the theaters this weekend and get in touch with your emotions.
1) There’s a fun Pixar short film at the beginning, called Lava. While cute, it’s also very sad for the majority of the film and there’s a strong and loud moment that might startle some kids. However, if you’re a love story fan, you’ll fall in love.
2) There are some fun hidden “easter eggs” and neat facts that you might want to know before you go see the film so you can watch for them. And, if you’ve already seen it, head back again and try and catch these 8 fun facts about Disney Pixar Inside Out.
3) Definitely be sure you don’t leave before the final credits; you’ll perhaps see a fun little surprise if you stay a while. P.S. kids love to look for the names of family & friends in the credits if you want to encourage them to stay for a while.
4) Disney has put together this fun Emotions Around the World sheet, so for our family travel fans, you can teach your kids how to say the emotion in different languages!
Thanks for reading and I hope you like the movie as much as I did! Let me know who is your favorite emotion if you do see the movie. I’d love to hear who everyone likes!
