In an exciting reveal, Disney and Pixar have dropped the trailer and poster for the highly anticipated "Inside Out 2," set to be the quintessential feel-good film of summer 2024.

Prepare for a rollercoaster of emotions as Riley's inner voices navigate uncharted territory with the introduction of a new Emotion—Anxiety.

Returning to the mind of the newly minted teenager Riley, "Inside Out 2" unfolds against the backdrop of a sudden demolition in headquarters, making way for the unexpected arrival of new Emotions.

Maya Hawke joins the stellar cast, lending her voice to Anxiety, alongside Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear, and Liza Lapira as Disgust.

Directed by Kelsey Mann and produced by Mark Nielsen, "Inside Out 2" is set to hit theaters next summer, promising an emotional journey that transcends the animated realm.
