Drawing upon the expertise of emotional expert Dacher Keltner, who also contributed to the first film, the team honed in on the self-conscious emotions that become pronounced during adolescence. As Riley grapples with growing independence and the need for acceptance, emotions like Ennui, Embarrassment, Anxiety, and Envy come to life, adding depth and nuance to her emotional journey.

But there’s one more emotion that seems to linger in the air: Nostalgia, weaving through Riley’s memories like a comforting blanket, reminding her of simpler times.

As the countdown to June 14, 2024, begins, audiences everywhere eagerly await the opportunity to go on another emotional rollercoaster with Riley and her colorful cast of emotions. Get ready to laugh, cry, and everything in between, as Inside Out 2 promises to capture the heart and soul of adolescence like never before.
