Inside Out is a children’s movies of 2015. It follows the life of an 11 year old girl named Riley and the multiple emotions that live inside her mind. Each emotion in the movie is pictured as its own personality. There’s Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Fear (Bill Hadar), Anger (Lewis Black), and Disgust (Mindy Kaling). The main purpose is that all of these emotions need to work together to help Riley make important decisions and navigate her everyday life. When she moves away from Minnesota she misses her old home, old friends,etc. For the first time she is struggling with negative core memories and it uses the emotions to show how she gets past it.  I think when children watch this movie, it will help them gain a deeper understanding of their own mental world and how all of their emotions play an important role.

I interviewed two people on their opinion of this movie. The first interviewer said “I love the movie because it gets me thinking about how the brain works and how your personality traits and emotions make you who you are.” He gave a very positive outlook on the movie. The second person I interviewed said “After watching the movie I came to a realization that you need all emotions in order to grow up and get past things in life.” She seemed to learn something from this movie.

Overall, Inside Out made over 857.6 million US dollars and received multiple awards. For example, the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film, Kids’ Choice Awards for Favorite Voice from an Animated Movie, MTV Movie Award for Best Virtual Performance, etc. Disney is proud of this production and viewers are not complaining. In fact, they are ecstatic.
