The movie "Inside Out" revolves around the emotions belonging to young girl Riley, a recent Midwestern transplant to San Francisco. Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust all work in Riley's "main control center" (her mind) and help guide her decisions and experiences. As the emotions argue on how best to help Riley adjust to the recent move, Joy and Sadness are accidentally extracted from the control center and sent into the storage area of the girl's past memories.
"Inside Out" is the 15th movie created by Pixar. It was produced by Disney Pictures and stars Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith as Joy, Disgust, Fear, Anger and Sadness respectively. Actress Kaitlyn Dias provided the voice behind Riley. Peter Docter and Ronaldo Del Carmen served as both primary writers and directors of the movie.
Pixar Studios was founded in 1986 by Alvy Ray Smith, Edwin Catmull and Steve Jobs.

The first short film to be completed by Pixar and shown to general audiences was "Luxo Jr." The movie won the Oscar for "Best Animated Short Film."
