Pixar unveil full plot synopsis for next film Inside Out

Pixar has released a full synopsis for its next film, Inside Out.

Until now, we've only been given a brief summary of the plot - it revolves around animated embodiments of human emotions - and a glimpse at the main characters.

Now, though, Pixar's gone into more specific detail. Check out how it describes Inside Out below...

From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all – inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

It all sounds typically playful - a smart cross between Martin Short's '80s comedy Innerspace and the emotional storytelling that Pixar is known for.

Also, how adorable is Anger, with his little tie?

Inside Out opens in the US on 19 June 2015. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
