Finding an email that starts with the words “Disney would like to invite you….” Is always a moment that makes time stand still but when you find out that you’re heading back to Los Angeles next week with 24 other incredible bloggers to, wait for it…..walk the Red Carpet –yes THE Red Carpet –for the premiere of Inside Out at the El Capitan Theatre, there may have been a shriek or two heard.#PixarInsideOut Command Center

My Inside Out journey actually started last January with another very special media trip as I traveled to Pixar Animation Studios to sit down and talk to Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera about the making of their then up and coming animated film for the entire family as well as interviewing James Ford Murphy and Andrea Warren about Lava, the short that will play right before Inside Out.Inside Out Lava

Here’s a look at some of the exclusives we’ll be bringing to you from Los Angeles June 7-9


#InsideOutEvent  #InsideOut

While in L.A. next week, we’ll be walking the Red Carpet at the historic El Capitan Theatre in the heart of Hollywood to attend the world premiere of Disney•Pixar’s latest film Inside Out. This animated family film takes you inside the mind of Riley, a young girl who is who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Joy (Amy Poehler).#InsideOut Emotions

The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
