The trio will arrive in Sydney on Monday June 15, attending the Australian Premiere of “Inside Out” at Sydney’s Event Cinemas George Street that evening, before continuing their support of the film with a press tour over the following days.
Amy, who voices ‘Joy’ in the original new animated film, is best known for her comedic work on US shows Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation, as well as her hosting duties alongside fellow comedian Tina Fey at the 2013, 2014 and 2015 Golden Globe Awards. This will be the first time she has visited Australia.
Director Pete Docter is the Academy Award winning director of “Up”, making his directorial debut with Disney Pixar’s smash hit “Monsters Inc.”, which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature film. Jonas Rivera produced the Academy Award winning “Up”, for which he was nominated best picture. Prior to this, Jonas had worked on nearly every Pixar film since joining the studio in 1994.
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out. Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
Inside Out opens in cinemas nationally on Thursday June 18, 2015.
