Client: Ron Funches – Talent

Joy has taken over the console of Inside Out 2 as Kelsey Mann's sequel to the 2015 film has broken office records with a record $295 million worldwide, reported BBC. Disney said that this has made it the strongest global opening by an animated film of all time.

The Pixar film scored a mighty $155 million in its first weekend of release in North America, overtaking Dune: Part Two ($82.5 million) and Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire ($80 million) as the biggest opening of the year. It’s also the first movie since last July’s Barbie ($162 million) to debut above $100 million.

With a $140 million opening weekend, the second Inside Out 2 managed to beat the $135 million opening weekend of Frozen 2 to become the greatest animated film ever released internationally.

Pete Doctor, known for making Pixar classics like Monsters Inc and Up, had directed the original Inside Out.

Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Tony Hale, Lewis Black, and Liza Lapira play Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust respectively in Inside Out 2. Anxiety is voiced by Maya Hawke, Envy by Ayo Edebiri, Ennui by Adèle Exarchopoulos and Embarrassment by Paul Walter Hauser. Kensington Tallman had replaced Kaitlyn Dias to voice Riley, while Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan have returned to voice her parents.
