Who's your friend who likes to play? BING BONG BING BONG!

Inside Out captures the science of emotions, memory and personality remarkably accurately for an animated feature. In fact, getting the science right was paramount to the team at Pixar. It’s as accurate as the science in a Pixar movie can be, because it still needs to be entertaining, but it’s more accurate than it needs to be.

Director Pete Docter, already a steady hand at Pixar after directing Monsters Inc. and Up, had an idea based on the changing personality of his then pre-teen daughter. What was going on inside her head? Why was she becoming introverted and withdrawn at eleven years of age?

John Lasseter loved the idea, and Inside Out moved forward, but the questions about the human mind continued. How is the stream of consciousness influenced by emotions? How do feelings affect the way we remember the past? And how would you describe an 11-year-old girl's emotional life?

Take her to the moon for me.

I would love to hear your thoughts on Inside Out (2015) !
