Inside Out 2   (2024)

Rating:  PG

Release Date:  In theaters nationwide on Friday, June 14, 2024.

Summary: In Inside Out 2, Riley is now a full-time teen, and her mind is going through some changes. The gang of Emotions—Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust, have been doing a great job, but they are about to meet a new addition to the group: Anxiety. And it looks like she isn’t alone.

What to Watch For: This is a sequel to the 2015 hit Inside Out, which takes place two years after the events of the first film.

Word on the Street: Maya Hawke (Stranger Things, Wildcat) is the voice of Anxiety. She is joined by Paul Walter Hauser as Embarrassment, Adèle Exarchopoulos as Ennui, and Ayo Edebiri as Envy.

My Take: I am guessing this will be a big box office draw. The first trailer set records for online views for a Disney animated film.
