Post 144: First Look at Riley and Animation From "Inside Out"

Riley from Inside Out

Hi everybody! "Inside Out" is getting closer and we still don't have a teaser (but I think they will release it in front of "Big Hero 6"), but we have just got a look at Riley, the main character/setting and the animation.
"Disney Movies Anywhere has just launched a two minute behind-the-scenes sneak peek at Pixar's highly anticipated Inside Out (bundled along with the Monsters University Summer Movies To Go video). Hitting theaters on June 19, 2015, Inside Out will take us into the mind of Riley, a 11-year-old girl who is uprooted from her midwest life to start anew in San Francisco, California. As Riley grows up and enters her teenage years, her emotions and personality change too. Although Riley is an important part of the movie, her emotions are the film's main characters: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust.

The sneak peek, introduced by Pete Docter (Director) and Jonas Rivera (Producer), gives us our first look at Riley, shows some great test animation of the emotions and also discusses the throwback animation style the team used in the movie. Rivera said, "We really wanted to push and caricature and squash and stretch and go back to some of those principles that got us loving animation". Hearing Pete and Jonas discuss the the old Hollywood style of animation really excites us - it's going to feel so fresh and nostalgic at the same time." -Pixar Post

What do you think of Riley? And when should we get a teaser?
