Last week, I had the opportunity to visit Pixar for two days and watch the first 56 minutes of Inside Out. It’s been a lot to process, but I’ve condensed the experience into a post you can read here:
It was a great experience, and I had the chance to chat with Pete Docter, Jonas Rivera, Tony Fucile, and many others. I also saw a screening for the new short, LAVA, which will be paired with Inside Out.
My early thoughts on the movie is that it is a huge step forward for Pixar in terms of narrative. Docter and Rivera have crafted something really special with Inside Out, and I have little doubt it’s going to be a huge success for the studio. The world they’ve created for this movie is more rich, detailed, and inventive than anything the studio has put out so far. I felt like I was stepping into a world built by George R.R. Martin, the author of A Game of Thrones.
It’s funny. It’s emotional. And it’s fun. I can’t wait to see the whole thing. Once the movie comes out, and you all have a chance to see it, we can talk about how it fits into the Pixar Theory and all of that. But for now, I just want to bask in the fact that Pixar is coming out with another winner.
