"Monsters Inc." director Pete Docter explains the brainy, high-minded Pixar feature
Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling, Lewis Black and Phyllis Smith will lend their voices to Disney/Pixar's "Inside Out," the upcoming film from "Monsters Inc." and "Up" director Pete Docter.
Each lends a voice to the "Emotions" — five characters who personify human emotions and guide an 11-year-old girl named Riley through her daily life.
Black will voice anger; Kaling disgust; Hader is fear; Poehler is joy; and Smith is sadness.
Pixar chief John Lasseter described the movie as one of the most unique he's ever been involved with, introducing the Oscar-winning Docter to explain the premise of taking viewers inside the human mind; two emotions are thrown out of Riley's cranial headquarters and into the deepest recesses.
Hader took the stage for the third time, having signed up for two upcoming Pixar movies after a brief role in "Monsters University."
