“Inside Out” an upcoming animated movie starring Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith as different emotions in a girl’s head truly is one of its kind movie. The film’s central theme deals with a little girl called Riley who has to move to San Francisco with her parents when her dad secures a new job in the city. Her emotions namely joy, fear, anger, disgust and sadness act as tools of coping mechanism for her to deal with the situation.
With an interesting storyline like this comes an even more interesting piece of information. According to Venture Beat, the movie that will release on June 12 will also have a complimentary video game released as a part of Disney’s Infinity adventure game. Much unlike other Disney franchises, this game will come with toy figurines.
The game will be a part of the Disney Infinity’s third version that will come out this fall and sees characters from brands like Star Wars, Marvel and Disney coming together under one platform. Ever since a report was released that an average parent spends $131 on a game like this, expectations have been higher that on a platform like this the game will surely work.
Apart from introducing the game, a short sequel has also been produced to the upcoming movie by Avalanche (who is heading the play set games for Disney infinity) and Pixar that shows Riley watching a scary movie and how after she falls asleep her imagination takes over. Her emotions will be seen moving around her head dealing with the scary images and since each emotion is unique, every one of them will have a special capability. For instance, Disgust does not like things near her so she has been given the power of high jump; Joy has been bestowed with light feet and fear with edgy and fast speeds.
The game will also give the players an option to switch amongst the emotions and play with the ones they are most comfortable with and the ones they think perfectly fit the situation. This game is being touted as quite a good way by which Pixar is expanding its universe in different ways.
