Script Analysis: INSIDE OUT with Barri Evins


Inside the mind of a young girl, her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness - must work together to find a way to help her cope with the trauma of moving to a new city and school. 

Inspired by his own childhood social anxiety when his family relocated to Denmark, director and co-screenwriter PETE DOCTER noticed his pre-teen daughter exhibiting similar shyness and imagined what happens inside the human minds when emotions develop. Docter was previously nominated for six Academy Awards, including three for his work on the original Pixar screenplays Toy Story, WALL-E, and Up, winning in the Best Animated Feature category for Up, which he also directed. His other writing credits includeMonsters, Inc., and he is currently working on Toy Story 4.

Other credited screenwriters on Inside Out include Meg LeFauve (The Good Dinosaur, a live-action Captain Marvel film scheduled for 2019) and animator Josh Cooley (co-director of Toy Story 4), with a co-story credit by co-director Ronnie Del Carmen.

The animated Pixar hit feature stars the voice talents of Amy Poehler (SNL, Parks and Recreation) as Joy, Phyllis Smith (The Office) as Sadness, Bill Hader (SNL, Trainwreck) as Fear, stand-up comic Lewis Black as Anger, Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project) as Disgust, and Richard Kind (Mad About You, Spin City) as Bing Bong, with Diane Lane, Kyle MacLachlan, Paula Poundstone, Bobby Moynihan, Frank Oz, Flea, John Ratzenberger, and Rashida Jones.

AWARDS - So far Inside Out is nominated for two Oscars and 2 BAFTAs: Best Animated Feature & Best Original Screenplay and has won the Best Animated Picture Golden Globe. The screenplay has also picked up awards from the Phoenix Film Critics Society, Utah Film Critics Association, and Washington DC Area Film Critics Association. It has 15 additional writing nominations from the Alliance of Women Film Journalists, Austin Film Critics Association, Broadcast Film Critics Association, Central Ohio Film Critics Association, Chicago Film Cricits Association, Detroit Film Critic Society, Florida Film Critics Circle, Image Awards, Indiewire Critics' Poll, Kansas City Film Critics Circle, North Carolina Film Critics Association, Online Film Critics Society, Satellite Awards, Southeastern Film Critics Association, and St. Louis Film Critics Association.

Inside Out premiered out of competition at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. After a U.S. premiere on June 8 at Disney's El Capitan Theatre, the film was released wide on June 19. It has grossed over $350 million domestically / over $777 million worldwide and is currently available on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and streaming.
