Disney is working on Inside Out 2, and a formal announcement is anticipated this weekend at the D23 Expo.
In 2015, the first Inside Out was favorably welcomed, earning over $800 million worldwide and receiving many positive reviews.
Inside Out, considered one of Pixar’s best films, follows Riley, a young girl moving to a new city, as she is guided by five anthropomorphic emotions.
Pete Docter, who directed Inside Out, announced shortly after the movie’s theatrical debut that he had no intentions to make a sequel and was instead focusing on Soul in 2020, an original project.
Pixar as a whole has mainly avoided franchise fodder since the release of 2019’s Toy Story 4, with this summer’s Lightyear serving as the studio’s lone out-of-the-blue production during that period.
But it seems like Pixar is getting ready to make another sequel, albeit without some important cast members.
According to Puck, Inside Out 2 will be revealed at the D23 Expo, but Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader will not reprise their respective roles as Disgust and Fear.
. Due to strained talks, it appears like the two won’t be making a comeback.
It will be fascinating to see whether Disney uses Disgust and Fear’s new voices in Riley’s tale or ignores them entirely.
Fans have been anticipating a sequel since Inside Out’s 2015 release for a while now.
