Get ready for your next Pixar fix.

After a long period of silence, we have finally have learned some valuable information about their upcoming movie "Inside Out," which will hit theaters on June 19, 2015. Director Pete Docter spoke at the Annecy Intl. Animation Film Festival to reveal information about the film, and from what we have discovered, we are totally sold.  

The movie revolves around the inner workings of an 11-year-old girl's mind as she transitions from childhood to tweendom. The movie follows her different personified emotions as they watch the young Riley, a character that apparently will play a outer role à la Max in "Toy Story," go through some major mood changes. The all-star cast includes Amy Poehler as Joy, Bill Hader as Fear, Lewis Black as Anger, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, and Phyllis Smith as Sadness. 

Pixar explained how the plot would go.

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.

According to Variety, the film was inspired by Docter's experience watching his daughter go through her pre-teen years and how she changed emotionally. To create the film, Pixar enlisted a team of psychologists to help them translate growing minds into characters. They also coached the team on how to best represent memories, which will be a key element in the film.  

The film will begin with a similar montage to the iconic one in the Pixar classic "Up". Uh oh. Seeing that Docter directed that sob fest that Pixar calls a movie, we are pretty sure we are going to be blubbering messes by the end of "Inside Out." We can't wait!
