Disney and Pixar have done it again with another great, family friendly movie with Inside Out. This one touches on something that is incredibly important: emotions. This is something that can be incredibly difficult for children to understand, and express, and through Inside Out they get a visual, representation of their emotions. With it, is also a connection to different colours for each emotion. It’s now available on Blu-ray, and it is definitely one you want to add to your movie collection.
What’s it all about…
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
I love that in the opening scene we see one of the main characters, Riley, is shown growing up and starting to express different emotions. Everything from joy, to sadness. Fear though just might be my favourite with his apprehensive nature, and need to keep Riley safe. I was in tears just watching the first scene because it reminded me just how fast my oldest daughter is growing up.
As soon as this movie arrived at our door my oldest wanted to have a movie night, and I agreed right away. We’ve been dealing with a bit of an emotional roller coaster over here. She sat through the whole entire thing, and was talking about what was going on the whole time. While some parts may still be way over her head for now, I love that she did connect to parts of it. She is already expressing her emotions in a much better way by telling us she is feeling sad, or frustrated.
There are definitely several little add ons to the Blu-ray that you do not want to miss either. Like the short film, Lava, that was played before the movie in theatres. It will make you want to go on vacation to Hawaii instantly. It’s also another one that had me in tears, you may want to have tissue ready. It’s the love story of two volcanos, it’s just very sweet and you will love the song. You also will want to watch Riley’s First Date. You get a look inside the heads of what’s going on with Riley’s Mom and Dad’s emotions, and more, but I’m going to leave it to you to watch.
