Pixar Animation Studios has been on an annual release schedule for years now. Usually every summer or Christmas, the company's talented storytellers deliver their latest masterpiece to audiences everywhere.

But when Pixar's next feature film, Inside Out, finally arrives in June of 2015, it will have been almost two years to the day since the last movie to carry the Pixar logo opened in theaters (That was 2013's Monsters University.) It's not known why Pixar needed an extra year between releases this time, but given the rather ho-hum reception to both Cars 2 and Brave, we can probably all agree that it's better if Pixar's people take their time and get this one right.

Pixar wizard Pete Docter, known for instant classics Monsters, Inc. and Up, wrote and directed Inside Out, which is about the personified emotions of the human mind. In this case, they live in the mind of a young girl named Riley. The movie breaks all of our emotions down into five basic states, each one featuring a unique look and a famous voice. Check it out:

Amy Poehler leads the cast as Joy, Mindy Kaling is Disgust, Bill Hader plays Fear, Lewis Black is Anger, and The Office's Phyllis Smith is Sadness. The trailer shows us just that and not much else, so it's hard to form an opinion. It's just a taste of what's to come. Here's Disney's official description:

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, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. 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.

Inside Out opens June 19, 2015.
