‘Soul’ Theory: Does 22 Become Riley From ‘Inside Out’? (No)

WARNING: Spoilers for Pixar’s Soul

Yesterday, I did a longer stream covering some of the critical backlash to Soul, which you can check out here. And toward the end, someone in the live chat asked me if I think 22 (voiced by Tina Fey in Soul) might’ve become Riley from Inside Out after being born. So today I decided to devote a full live stream to covering this theory, which apparently debuted on Reddit and/or Twitter. I cover some of the arguments being made for the theory, and then dive into the reasons I think this one just doesn’t work at all. Plus, some positive speculation on who 22 could reasonably be tied to down the road.

Toward the end of the stream, I lightly touch on some early thoughts I have about how Soul fits into the overall theory. Plus, I go over the three “types” of fan theories that are out there. Hope you all enjoy this one.

  1. What year willInside Out take place in your Pixar theory book? You said 2015.

  2. What year does Inside Out take place in the Pixar timeline. I am not sure.
