So Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ Got Us Thinking…

It’s no secret that Pixar is known for churning out some of the more catchy, as well as clever animation films—they’re just so darn good at what they do. And while we could go on for days about some of their “oldies but goodies,” it’s Pixar’s latest release, Inside Out, that has really got us thinking. 

Oh, and if you aren’t familiar with the Inside Out, you can check out the trailer below (trust us, it’s pretty adorable).

So, now you’ve seen it—and you can probably guess why it is we’re just a little bit fascinated with the message. 

Here at PI, we try our very best to channel the thoughts, fears, joys and frustrations of girls in your shoes—girls who are just as busy discovering the world as they are making sense of it. And as much as a strong sense of faith can help hold any one person steady, it doesn’t always make sense against the backdrop of an imperfect world.

Hence—all those uber fickle emotions. And we totally get that at time, they can feel pretty inconsiderate—which is why we just love what Inside Out has to say about them.

Pixar’s goal might have been to charm and entertain, but Inside Out does something else that’s pretty incredible, too. It prompts us to peek inside our own minds and look our emotions right in the face (literally, since they’ve got them). The takeaway? Feelings are chaotic, and unpredictable and a little bit unruly, but they’re also at the root of all of our experiences, and experiences aren’t such a bad thing. The other takeaway? Have a little trust in joy—because joy, like faith, will always come out on top if you can just hang in there for a little while.

    Oh goodness, I liked the first trailer, but this one is precious beyond words <3 It makes me so happy, especially since they're placing a lot of focus on the emotion characters (people were speculating that the humans were going to discover the emotion characters, which seems very Pixar-like but not exactly a fun story).
