A couple of weeks ago I was able to go on an amazing trip to San Francisco where we were able to get behind the scenes of the movies Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur as well as a few other really cool things I will be sharing more about over the coming weeks. But today I get to share with you an exclusive deleted scene from the Inside Out movie that is presented by Pete Docter. It is called “Joy’s Decline”.
I love the extra insight that this brings to the show and to Riley’s character (including her emotions). It is a fun variation. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I can promise you it is one you will want to own wither you have kids or not!
It comes out on 10/13 (tomorrow) on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, and On Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and On Demand November 3. Here is a little bit about each of the emotions and what the movie is about:
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
