This past Thursday, Pixar fans waited in anticipation as the rollout of the Cannes Film Festival 2015 roster was reveled. I am happy to announce that Inside Out is officially premiering at the esteemed festival, the second time directing and producing duo Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera; their first time premiering a feature at Cannes was in 2009 with Up (my favorite Pixar film). This announcement is very telling of the kind of quality that Inside Out will be bringing to the table, which is very exciting to behold. More on the announcement and a new clip from Inside Out after the break!
Inside Out Director Pete Docter on the announcement of the World Premiere of Inside Out at Cannes Film Festival 2015:
“We are overjoyed at being included in this year's official selection at Cannes,” said Docter. “With ‘Inside Out,’ we spent years imagining – and then building – never-before-seen settings and characters within the mind. It was an incredible, fun and exciting challenge and now we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
The premiere announcement was quickly followed by the reveal of our first clip from the film, featuring Joy delegating to the other four emotions (Disgust, Fear, Anger, and Sadness) what to prepare for Riley's first day at school:
"If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."
