It’s Oscar Sunday and no one knows what the day feels like more than the animation of Disney and Pixar. This year’s Academy Award nominee for Outstanding Animated Feature is “Inside Out.”
The film will vie for the Outstanding Animated Feature Film against “Shaun the Sheep Movie,” “Boy and the World,” “When Marnie Was There” and “Anomalisa.”
In “Inside Out,” 11-year-old Riley is a happy, hockey-loving girl whose world turns upside-down when she and her parents move from the quiet Mid-West to San Francisco. Riley’s emotions, led by Joy, try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust. The film stars Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith.
“Inside Out” has won a number of awards throughout the year including, the BAFTA Film Award for Best Animated Film, The Critics’ Choice Awards and the Annie Award for Best Animated Film to name a few.
Animation Examiner caught up with the film’s Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera at the 2015 Movie For Grown Ups to get their thoughts on the film and to find out what’s ahead for the pair.
