Any first look at a Pixar film is worth your time, and with a number of sequels or prequels filling up the halls of Emeryville’s dream factory an original work is all the more welcome.

Up man Pete Docter is the man behind this film, and the synopsis below sets the scene perfectly for Pixar’s latest tear jerker.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). 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.

The trailer takes a while to get going – we don’t really need to be told how great Pixar are, or how easily they can make us cry. (No, YOU’RE CRYING.) but when we get our first look at Pete Docter’s new film it’s utter joy.

The film is set to be released in July 2015.
