Inside Out 2's trailer sets new record for DisneyDisney/Pixar

The recent release of Inside Out 2's first trailer has set a new record, as the film has garnered the biggest animated trailer launch in Disney history.

The teaser saw the return of Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith) and Anger (Lewis Black), as well as Fear and Disgust, whose voice actors have been replaced with Tony Hale and Liza Lapira — taking over from Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling, respectively. Stranger Things star Maya Hawke is introduced as the frazzled new emotion, Anxiety.

Excitement for the sequel has propelled the trailer to surpass 2019's Frozen 2 — whose trailer previously held the Disney record.

"We are thrilled so many people have tuned in to check out the new trailer for Inside Out 2," said Pete Docter, chief creative officer of Pixar and director of Inside Out.

"When the first film came out, we knew that by telling a story where we could see our emotions — those little voices inside your head — there would be so much more to explore than we could possibly fit into one film."

Docter also praised his successor Kelsey Mann and the entire production team on their work to effectively continue the story, saying: "[They] have done such a great job with Inside Out 2, expanding the world and introducing new emotions that we're very anxious for audiences to discover."

He concluded: "We couldn't be more grateful to see the kind of response the trailer has received so far. Thank you to all who have checked it out — we can't wait for everyone to see the film when it comes to theatres next summer."

Following its release in 2015, Inside Out became an instant hit — with audiences falling in love with young Riley's different emotions. Now a teenager, the sequel to the Pixar blockbuster will see Riley and the gang face a whole new set of challenges.

Inside Out 2 will be released in cinemas on June 14, 2024.
