Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Trailer: Emotions Don’t Always Work as a Team

Here’s what’s great about the trailer for Pixar’s Inside Out: it’s adorable realism.

Yes, the dinner conversation where mom is prying, dad is tuned out (or tuned into sports) and young daughter is lashing out can be a cliche, but this is an excellent look at what it means to twist convention enough to make it work wonders. Instead of three personalities at a table, we get 15.

We’ve known for a long time that the film would focus on the different emotions inside a little girl’s head, and we found out recently that we’d see other characters’ emotions as well, but the command center they’ve got set up is a smart touch. It’s not that these emotions live in the same space, but that they are meant to work together 24/7 even if they don’t always work well as a team.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

In Pete Docter we trust.
