What is 'Inside Out 2' about?
Following the D23 Expo announcement, actress Amy Poehler spoke with People and revealed the synopsis of Inside Out 2. The 50-year-old comedian, who will be reprising her role as Joy, told the outlet that the sequel tackles the teenage years of main character Riley as she goes through puberty.
"At the very end [of] the original, Joy has that great moment where she's like, 'Finally, everything the way it's supposed to be.' Then we see that big puberty button, 'Should we press this?' We do press it in the second movie," Amy said. "In some ways, Inside Out set itself up for a sequel and we're going there."
"We're going to have what it feels like to be a teenager, the new emotions that live inside a young person's brain," the 23-time Primetime Emmy nominee continued. "In many ways, it was really exciting. We knew exactly where we were. We go to the teen brain and we see the madness that lives inside there."
