'Inside Out' Voice Cast Revealed

Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black and more lend voices to Pixar's Inside Out, directed by Pete Docter.


The voice cast for Pixar movie Inside Out was revealed during today’s presentation by Disney Animation at the D23 Expo, according to a report by Cinema Blend.

Directed by Up’s Pete Docter, Inside Out is “told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl.” The animated feature has a release date of June 19, 2015.

During the presentation, Docter took the stage with producer Jonas Rivera and announced the voice cast, all of whom will be playing emotions inside the mind of a little girl named Riley. Lewis Black (The Daily Show) appears as Anger, Mindy Kaling (The Office) as Disgust, Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) as Fear, Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation) as Joy, and Sadness by Phyllis Smith (The Office).

Docter and Rivera revealed that the movie will travel to many areas of the brain, from the theme park-like Imagination Land to Dream Production, all of it connected by the Train of Thought. At least some of the story will be about what happens when several emotions are asked to take over for others, to relatively disastrous effect.
