Pixar's Next Animated Film Regarded As "Risky"

After some test footage was screened over the weekend at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, Pixar's forthcoming feature, Inside Out has already begun to generate controversy. One person attending the presentation remarked during a question period that the whole idea of the film -- in which emotions become characters in the mind of the protagonist -- seemed reminiscent of the Cranium Command attraction that Walt Disney's educational Epcot center operated from 1989 to 2007. In reporting on Pixar's plans, today's (Tuesday) Los Angeles Times observed: By focusing not on superheroes or talking animals but on the decidedly complicated realm of the human mind, Inside Out will be both a creative gamble for its filmmakers and challenge for Disney's marketing department. But the newspaper suggested that if anyone can pull it off, it's the director, Pete Docter, who was responsible for Pixar's Up and Monsters Inc. It quoted Docter as saying at the conference, What always excites me is finding a story that can only be done in animation.
