Inside Out 2 introduced several new emotions such as fear, envy, embarrassment, and boredom into Riley’s teenage mind. The more complicated feelings of shame and guilt were also considered, but these were ultimately cut from the Pixar film.




Speaking to ComicBook, writer Meg LeFauve explained why these emotions were left out. “I think emotionally, we tried for quite a while to build shame and guilt into the film,” said the author. “Shame is more self-hatred – the thing that attacks you. And we’ve talked to a lot of experts about it.” The difference is shame is not really good for you because it is all about attacking you. Guilt is about taking responsibility and it is a behavior, not who you are.

Inside Out 2 is Pixar’s latest blockbuster and captures teenage femininity in a spectacular way.


These emotions were ultimately removed from the storyboard of ideas because, according to LeFauve, “it just never really clicked“And the team wanted the film to focus on fear.”But I think we all have that self-hating critic in our head, and we need to look a little bit at the projections and how fear can start to do that to you.” the author continued. “So I think it’s in the movie, but that was something we explored that we ultimately didn’t feel would be fruitful for this version.”


Inside Out 2 originally had nine new emotions

Director Kelsey Mann had previously revealed that the film would include nine new emotions in addition to joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger. Some of these, such as shame, guilt and mistrust, were cut out to maintain the simplicity of the story. “I wanted Joy to feel overwhelmed by all the new emotions that emerged,” said the filmmaker. “And then you couldn’t keep track of everything anymore.” There were so many emotions, and they canceled each other out because you couldn’t keep up with them all. And my first comment from the first screening was: Simplify.”

What Pixar (and Disney) can learn from the success of Inside Out 2

Inside Out 2 is a huge success and offers Pixar (and by extension Disney) a strategy to increase their business after a series of recent flops.

Inside Out 2 was a success for Pixar and surpassed films like Dune – Part Two And Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire during its opening weekend. Within eight days of its release, the film grossed $285.6 million at the domestic box office. Given the financial success, questions about a third film in the series are bound to arise.


Mann had previously revealed that he was hoping for a third installment. “It’s such a great world to play in, and ideas just come from playing in that world, both for locations and characters,” he said. “There are so many ideas, not just from the first film, but especially from this one, where I think, ‘That’s a really fun, clever idea. I don’t know how it fits into this particular story, but it should be used at some point.'”

Inside Out 2 is in cinemas.
