Plot for Pixar’s Inside Out Revealed

Usually, around this time of year, we'd start getting really excited for the new Pixar movie. However, because of major delays to The Good Dinosaur, we're going Pixar-less this summer. Meaning we won't have a new movie from the studio until June 19, 2015, when Inside Out premieres. Fortunately, Pixar has finally opened up about what that film will exactly be about. Read the full synopsis below and be appropriately pumped:

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.
