Pixar Director Peter Docter Talks Inside Out

Pixar director, Peter Docter, has been discussing his next movie with the animation studios, Inside Out, which takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl.

Docter, who won an Oscar in 2009 for his work on Up, has described Inside Out as “one of the most challenging stories I’ve ever had to put together.”

Very little is known about Pixar’s ambitious project, which is set to be released in 2015, other than the fact that it takes place inside the mind of the female protagonist and various emotions, such as anger, disgust, sadness, and joy feature as main characters.

Docter though has now provided moviegoers with a few additional tidbits regarding the project. The filmmaker revealed that the film features two simultaneous stories, one which depicts what is happening to the girl, and the other which shows audiences what is taking place inside her mind.

“One story is hard enough,” Docter told The Hollywood Reporter. “This is two stories that need to talk to each other.”

When discussing the animation process for the film, Docter remarked, “The characters are created with this energy because we are trying to represent what emotions would look like.”

Docter then went into more detail, stating, “They are made up of particles that actually move. Instead of being skin and solid, it is a massive collection of energy.”

However, Docter is revelling in the cinematic complexity, rather than being overawed by the huge pressure that comes with working on a Pixar project. He concluded, “It’s a lot of fund and really takes advantage of what animation can do.”

Inside Out is currently slated for a summer 2015 release, and will be preceded by 2014’s The Good Dinosaur, whilst the sequel to Finding Nemo, entitled Finding Dory will then follow their ambitious epic.

Do you think Inside Out will rival Pixar’s greatest ever films?
