What does Kelsey Mann has to say about another ‘Inside Out’ movie?

Last week, the much-anticipated sequel, Inside Out 2, hit theaters and has been receiving rave reviews. This time around, Riley enters her teenage years, leading to a multiplication of emotions and an even more dynamic storyline. The director, Kelsey Mann, is thrilled with the audience’s response and has already begun brainstorming for Inside Out 3.


What’s Next for Inside Out?

In an interview with USA Today, Mann shared his excitement about expanding the Inside Out universe. He mentioned, “There’s something about the Inside Out world where it’s met with open arms. Everybody’s like, ‘What age is she? I can’t wait to hear where she is in her life.’ We have a whole stockpile of ideas.” Despite not being able to include all his ideas in Inside Out 2 to avoid overwhelming viewers, Mann is optimistic about exploring them in future installments.

Mann’s enthusiasm for the franchise’s future is palpable. “The ideas are too good, too funny, and too interesting not to be explored,” he said, hinting that the Inside Out series has a promising road ahead. With Inside Out 2 being Pixar’s second-highest-grossing film this summer, it’s clear that audiences are eager for more. As Riley continues to grow, new emotions could be introduced, adding depth and excitement to the story.

In a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Mann revealed that nine new emotions were initially planned for Inside Out 2. “I started with nine new emotions showing up. It was ridiculous. There were so many. I wanted Joy to feel overwhelmed,” he explained. Eventually, five new emotions made the cut: Anxiety, Embarrassment, Envy, Ennui, and Nostalgia, each adding unique twists to Riley’s internal chaos.

With the incredible success of Inside Out 2 and a wealth of creative ideas in the pipeline, fans can look forward to more emotional adventures. As Riley’s journey through adolescence continues, Mann and his team are poised to deliver even more compelling and relatable stories that resonate with audiences of all ages.

So, while we bask in the brilliance of Inside Out 2, let’s stay tuned for what promises to be an exciting continuation of Riley’s emotional saga. The world inside Riley’s mind is brimming with potential, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us next.
