CGI behemoth Pixar had been taking a break (or so it seems) after releasing Monsters University mid 2013, having produced a film every consecutive year since Cars in 2006. Not to worry though; we'll be seeing Luxo Jr. introduce the Pixar logo again soon as the studio has released more information about its current project, Inside Out.

Pete Docter, known for his work in Monsters, Inc. and Up (which won Best Animated Feature at the 82nd Academy Awards) will direct Inside Out.

The film follows a girl, Riley who has to adjust to a new life when her father lands a job in San Francisco. She is guided by her emotions which live in her mind, also known as Headquarters. As Joy (Amy Poehler), Riley's most vital emotion tries to keep things positive, Fear (Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling),and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) cause conflict.

Slated for release in the US on 19 June 2015, Inside Out will be followed by The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory in late 2015 and mid 2016 respectively.
