Pixar has announced two new voice actors joining their next original film Inside Out.
A new article published on USA Today reveals that Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan will voice the parents of Riley (above, center), who Inside Out is set within.
What’s more: The film will actually be jumping inside the heads of Riley’s parents (pictured above, left and right), too. According to the report, “Dad’s emotions have Headquarters like a Norad missile defense site and have mustaches. Very male. Meanwhile, Mom’s Headquarters features emotions wearing her red glasses and who engage in civil discussion à la The View.”
Says director Pete Doctor (Monsters, Inc., Up), “We’re intercutting to show what’s going on inside each of their heads behind the scenes. What seems like a simple family dinner is actually fraught with all sorts of emotional angst and drama.”
USA Today says that a new Inside Out trailer will be released on Wednesday. We assume that the trailer will touch on what’s going on in the heads of Riley’s parents too since we’re just now learning that we’ll be visiting the minds of mom and dad.
Riley’s emotions inside her head — the focal point of this story — are voiced by Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith, and Mindy Kaling.
Based on the article, it sounds like the emotions in the heads of the parents will be voiced by different people.
We’ll be sure to share the new Inside Out trailer on Wednesday, December 10! While you’re waiting, check out the original Inside Out teaser trailer, which cleverly spends half of its time playing clips from old Pixar films.
Inside Out hits theaters this June. It will be the first film from Pixar since 2013’s Monsters University.
