If you can look past ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and ‘Jurassic World’ for a moment, you’ll perhaps be aware of the superb offering of Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’. The Disney Pixar hit won 10 awards, including Best Feature and Best Director for Pete Docter. Pixar can add these to the numerous awards it’s won already, including a Golden Globe, and is up for a BAFTA next week and a couple of Oscars (Animated Feature and Writing) in a few weeks time.
There’s no denying that ‘Inside Out’ has been a huge success and return to form for Disney Pixar. Having amassed $832 million and received rave reviews across the critical board, it’s left some speculating over Pixar’s second film of 2015, ‘The Good Dinosaur’, with some convinced it’ll be overshadowed by the movie set inside a little girl’s mind. It appears Peter Sohn’s tale of when dinosaurs continued to rule the Earth after that meteor narrowly missed might not require any premature sympathy.
Ever since Pixar released ‘Inside Out’ earlier this year, fans might’ve universally adored it, but many had a burning question they needed answering.
There really are a number of intriguing possibilities when you think about expanding on the ‘Inside Out’ universe, but only time (and final box office numbers) will tell if Pixar go ahead with any further stories.
Pixar’s latest smash hit, ‘Inside Out’, has not only been well received critically, but it’s made a bucket load of cash at the box office as well.
With the success of Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’, it seems the premise isn’t as original as we thought, with British comic the Beano having covered a similar story decades earlier. The Beezer, first published in 1962, contained The Numskulls which was a segment about a group of Numskulls that lived in the mind of a grown man. When the Beezer went under in the 1990s, the Beano picked up the strip, tweaking it to take place in the head of a little boy and has been around ever since.
The way in which her various emotions come to life was always likely to be key to whether they’d pull it off or not, and it’s great to say that Pixar do so spectacularly. After seeing ‘Inside Out’ it’s clear that Pixar are not only on top form - and that’s a genuine praise rather than a bandwagon hop - with a concept and execution that is their most ambitious, most complex and potentially most successful to date. It seems unthinkable that Pixar will be able to come up with something more daring and challenging than ‘Inside Out’.
