People Magazine unveiled the official poster for Inside Out on their snapchat today. The poster features bright colors and Joy (Amy Poehler) in the center, blissfully unaware of the varying degrees of negativity surrounding her. If anyone is unfamiliar with the film’s plot up to this point, the poster is extremely effective at piquing interest.
An onlooker would see that the same filmmakers behind Up are responsible for this new feature, and would wonder at the emotions being displayed. The poster even recalls one element of Up; the balloons. It almost looks like a party that only Joy is happy about, while the others are disgusted, frightened, angry, and sad.
Mindy Kaling, the voice of Disgust, was also interviewed by People for her involvement in the film. Her answers pertaining to the film and the pint sized green queen appear below.
Why were you excited to be a part of this movie?
It’s a Pixar movie!
If you didn’t play Disgust, which emotion would you want to play?
I think I could’ve nailed Outrage.
Which of the voices in your head is the loudest? Which are you encouraging to speak up more?
These days I have been feeling so grateful for what I get to work on. Between Inside Out, The Mindy Project and writing my book, I’m so happy. I know actors who are miserable no matter what they are doing and complain constantly about their jobs, and I just don’t identify with that at all. These are such great jobs to have, and it doesn’t feel like hard work when the material is so good.
Any emotion you think was left out of this movie?
Nope, I think the emotions assembled are a great mix and complement each other really well.
The official poster further indicates that a lot of the humor will probably depend on just how oblivious Joy is to the other four, but to see them complement each other will be a real treat!
Disney Pixar also posted a photo to their instagram page of a recording session, with a clip of Joy who appears to be playing a musical instrument!
