Disney Pixar’s Inside Out – new trailer!

image005One of the most eagerly anticipated animated movies of next year has to be the latest movie from Disney Pixar – Inside Out. The movie doesn’t open until July 2015, but we have the trailer right now!

The adventure is set inside the mind of young Riley, who is uprooted from her life when her dad starts a new job in San Francisco. Riley is guided by her emotion – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) – who all live in Headqurters, the control centre in Riley’s mind.

When Disney’s live action Cinderella opens in cinemas next year, on March 27, Frozen fans will get an extra special treat before the movie starts – a short animated story featuring the  much loved characters from Frozen. Titled Frozen Fever, the short is set on Anna’s birthday, and Elsa and Kristoff are planning a grand celebration – but Elsa’s icy powers may cause drama before the birthday party has even started.

 

We’ll feature more details on the Frozen short – and Cinderella – nearer the release date, but in the meantime, here are some Cinderella posters to get you ready for the movie next March (and doesn’t Helena Bonham Carter, as the fairy godmother, look gorgeous).
