Prepare to have feelings: Pixar's Inside Out is getting a sequel, it's filled with even more emotions than the first gorgeous 2015 hit, and it also looks set to again be the kind of movie about emotions that sparks plenty of them itself. Slated to hit cinemas in June, Inside Out 2 returns to the head of Riley, who was 11 years old in the initial movie but is a teenager now. Cue more than just feelings of joy, fear, sadness, anger and disgust bouncing through her mind, as both the followup's initial teaser in 2023 and new full trailer show.

Joy (Amy Poehler, Moxie), Fear (Tony Hale, Quiz Lady), Sadness (Phyllis Smith, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar), Anger (Lewis Black, The Last Laugh) and Disgust (Liza Lapira, The Equalizer) are all still present and accounted for in Inside Out 2. But they have company of the oh-so-apt-for-adolescence type. Anxiety (Maya Hawke, Stranger Things) was introduced in the debut sneak peek. Now, Envy (Ayo Edebiri, Bottoms), Ennui (Adèle Exarchopoulos, The Animal Kingdom) and Embarrassment (Paul Walter Hauser, The Afterparty) have shown up as well.

The story from there: Joy and the OG gang have some adjusting to do when Anxiety and her pals arrive, just as Riley (Kensington Tallman, Firebuds) does to high-school life and being a teenager. Of course, the battle between emotions plays out IRL as well as in Riley's brain.

As viewers saw in the first flick, the emotions that Riley experiences are sensations; however, they're also characters trying to guide their human in the best way they can. Everyone who has been a teenager knows the whirlwind of feelings that can spring, and therefore why Riley's head is getting crowded. And, you'll also recognise that Anxiety, Envy, Ennui and Embarrassment aren't about to just become barely seen figures.

Tallman, Hawke, Edebiri, Exarchopoulos and Hauser aren't the only new additions to the voice cast. Fans of the initial Inside Out will also spot that Hale and Lapira have also joined the fold, replacing Bill Hader (Barry) and Mindy Kaling (The Morning Show) respectively. Diane Lane (Feud) and Kyle MacLachlan (Lucky Hank) are back as Riley's parents, though.

First-time feature director Kelsey Mann (who has a story credit on The Good Dinosaur) directs, while Meg LeFauve (Captain Marvel) wrote the screenplay, as she did with Inside Out.
