A little outside of three months before its release, the Inside Out promotional campaign has heated up with the release of a second full-length trailer. You can compare it to the first full-length trailer released last December.
The new footage briefly re-establishes the film’s high-concept premise—Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, and Mindy Kaling live in everyone’s head—and then takes the viewer deeper into the film’s (tiny) universe, which is inside the main character Riley’s head, and hints at some of its conflicts. Cheekily billed as a “major emotion picture,” the trailer makes clear that Pixar and director/writer Pete Docter will be tugging at audience’s heartstrings for much of the film.
That’s not to say the film will entirely be a sentimental tissue-fest. The new trailer also introduces the “unintended star” of Inside Out: a take-no-guff diva unicorn character.
