We had the chance to check out Inside Out when it was in theaters, and it quickly became another of our Disney*Pixar favorites! So, you can imagine our “joy” when the movie arrived on our doorstep last week. After an exciting weekend at cheer competitions and lots of feels, my daughter and I knew just the way to wind down, with Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear of course!
About Inside Out
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness. It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
I love all the characters from the humans, the emotions, and, of course, Bing-Bong! Inside Our offers so many extras that include:

My daughter and I never tire of the movie, and I foresee lots of family movie nights ahead! We love the extras, and our favorite was Riley’s First Date. As a parent I know that’s coming, so it was so much fun to watch Riley’s parent deal with that first that we will all come across. Of course, we do want to have a little fun while we movie watch and thanks to the following activities we can do just that!
