“Inside out” was seen as less fun than Pixar's usual animated film when it was released in 2015.

But in retrospect, she's one of those you really remember: the last of the classic Thoroughbreds from their golden age. It took up permanent residence at the Cape, where, as is known, it also unfolded.

The idea was brave, bordering on reckless, and extremely honorable: a colorful 3D (remember 3D?) animated film about feeling down, sad, and sad.

Normally, only Japanese master Hayao Miyazaki and his Studio Ghibli get away with such high risks in making children's films. But Innsiden ut achieved its high educational goals admirably. (Actually, commercial films too: the film is said to have grossed more than $850 million.)

Maybe that says something about the problems within Pixar (in short: they don't have control over the steel anymore) that it took almost 10 years to get a sequel out.

If I'm being completely honest: I could probably agree with the smell of sweat. “Inside ut” is relatively short – an hour and a half – and is presented without a pre-film; The aperitif that has long been a Pixar trademark.

Now there is one thing. (Speaking precisely two something).

But you can see it in the script too, if you look for it. That someone has put in real effort, hard work and toil, while building the story. To make everything fall “naturally” into place.

Not to the point where the final product is fatally damaged. But it's enough to make you sit up and think about it somewhat.

In the first film, young Riley Andersen was upset because her family was moving from Minnesota to San Francisco. When we meet her again, there is a much greater disaster at hand.

It is puberty. Riley changes from day to day. The people around her understand little. Riley herself doesn't understand anything. what is going on? Why did I suddenly feel so embarrassed? And so uncharmingly assertive?

The five emotions that last dominated her mind – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Disgust and Anger; They are depicted as five small figures in their signal colors – and are still working there. But some new and confusing feelings are visiting them now, and they are in danger of being expelled.

Who are the new feelings that have taken over Riley's mind and caused the young girl to have an outpouring of emotions? (Literally: In the “Inside Out” movies, our memories and experiences are depicted as little balls that move at the slightest nudge.)

They are the little, blue, and perhaps slightly unproven envy. that it Boredom – A character/feeling of being tired and bored, of course appearing as a tall, articulate Frenchman, wearing a turtleneck, who mostly lies on the couch fiddling with his cell phone and yawning.

Awkwardness is a red-spotted, overgrown teenage boy hiding as best he can under his hood. But the strongest of all is undoubtedly fear:

A wild, chaotic, doomsday-prepared being who is on call 24 hours a day to convince Riley that anything could go wrong, Wants Err (I think Anxiety or Uro were equally accurate names.

Since Riley now wears almost everything, including… Hike wander In a convenient and somewhat unconscious way, Angst has a lot to do.

And when drama brews between Riley and her two best friends on one side, and ice hockey role model Valentina Ortiz on the other, things get worse. The old emotions, led by Joey, must regain control of their cardboard, before the system collapses.

A complicated topic this time too. But they are effectively watered down – to put it mildly, highly relevant to the target group.

I laughed a lot at the “irony gap” and premature sense of nostalgia – a grey-haired old lady holding a teacup in her hand (“Come back later!”).

Plus, Pixar movies always have one scene that can turn even the toughest old slick to jelly. This time it's about the tremendous relief that comes from forgiveness.

Let's say the totem character from the previous film – Riley's imaginary imaginary friend Bing Bong – is missing (he had to sacrifice himself in order for Riley to grow up). Let it not feel like “Inside Out 2”. Likes Effortless like a 2015 movie.

Anyway, this is good, almost Oscar worthy. Which shows that Pixar can still do it, when it has to.
