Character Error
Both parents had brown eyes and the girl had blue. Unless she was adopted, that is genetically impossible.
Diane Lane, who plays Mom and Kyle MacLachlan, who plays Dad have each played a role in Superman related media. Lane played Martha Kent in Man of Steel. MacLachlan provided Superman's voice in the direct to video movie Justice League: The New Frontier.

Joy glows whenever she gets excited.

Richard Kind's 5th Pixar movie, following A Bug's Life, Cars, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2.

There is a scene in which they add a camera filter called the reality distortion field filter. This is a direct reference to steve jobs where he would do anything to convince his employees they could get the job done. They called it Steve's reality distortion field

Riley 's last name is Anderson.

Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan star in this film. Lane has starred in DC's Man of Steel (2013) and MacLachlan starred in Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. This is interesting given that they fight, even though it is brief, in the movie.

Lewis Black and Mindy Kaling's second movie since Unaccompanied Minors.

Joy is the only female emotion with a pageboy haircut

In Justice League: A New Frontier( 2008), Kyle Machlan voices Superman, in Man of Steel( 2013), Diane Lane plays Martha Kent, Superman's mother.

Riley's first happy memory when she was born was bright enough to reveal the gears in Headquarters.

Director Pete Doctor has said that Bing Bong's voice actor, Richard Kind, was actually crying while recording the line, "Take her to the moon for me, Joy."

The reoccurring A113 from Pixar films can be seen in graffiti on a wall behind Riley when she is running away.

The second time John Ratzenberger has made a cameo as a construction worker. The first was UP (2009).

Pete Docter's third feature film for Pixar after Monsters, Inc. (2001) and Up (2009).

When Pete Docter first pitched the idea for this film to Pixar head John Lasseter, he said, "Imagine the fun we're gonna have when it comes to casting. We could get people like Lewis Black as Anger!" In the end, they did end up casting Lewis Black as Anger.

In the trailer, Anger responds to Disgust's statement that "there are no bears in San Francisco" by saying he has once seen a hairy guy that "looked like a bear". This is possibly a very subtle reference to the 'bear' sub-culture of San Francisco's gay community.

The scene with the two guards discussing whose hat belongs to whom while guarding the vault containing those things of which Riley is most scared is a nod to the hat-swapping scene between Vladimir and Estragon from Samuel Beckett's play "Waiting for Godot"

Every emotion except Anger has matching eye and hair color (Anger doesn't have hair), while every emotion except Joy has matching skin and eye/hair color.

According to Lewis Black (who plays Anger), when Pixar pitched this film to him, he received a box of previous Pixar films and a letter that suggested, "... that I may not know who Pixar is. Which meant that they were crazy or they thought I was just some sort of recluse."

When asked about the genders of the emotions, Pete Docter said, "It was intuitive. It felt to me like Anger's very masculine, I don't know why ... Sadness felt a little more feminine and Mindy Kahling as Disgust felt right ... with Mom and Dad, we skewed them all male and all female for a quick read, because you have to understand where we are, which is a little phony but hopefully people don't mind!"

Feature directorial debut of Ronaldo Del Carmen.

Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones previously starred together in Parks & Recreation (2009).

Richard Kind's 4th Pixar movie since A Bug's Life, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2.

John Ratzenberger, who plays Fritz, is the only person to voice a character in all of Pixar Animation's feature films.

Amy Poehler and Bill Hader previously worked together on Saturday Night Live (1975).

All the colors on BingBong's flower represent the skin colors of the emotions. Yellow for Joy, green for Disgust, red for Anger, blue for Sadness, and purple for Fear.

The girl in Riley's classroom with the purple streak in her hair resembles another Disney character- GoGo from Big Hero 6.

Riley 's new hockey team in San Francisco was called the Fog Horns.

This marks the second time a Pixar film has a leading female character since Brave (2012). With the addition of Sadness paired alongside Joy, it also marks the first Pixar film to have two female lead characters.

In one of the scenes in Imaginiation Land, Figment the Dragon from the Disney Parks attraction Journey into the Imagination with Figment is seen in a pile of memories to be discarded.

As evident by his T-Shirt, Riley's father's new job is at a company named "Brang"; according to the writers, this is a made-up word that they thought would fit a Silicon Valley startup.

The creators cast Phyllis Smith as Sadness after producer Jonas Rivera saw her performance in Bad Teacher (2011).

Colette Tatou from Pixar's Ratatouille, makes an appearance on a magazine cover.

Mindy Kaling's second Disney movie first being Wreck it Ralph.

Michael Arndt, who previously wrote Toy Story 3 (2010) for Pixar, was initially attached to write this movie but left the project around 2011.

The line "Forget it Jake, it's Cloudtown." is a nod to the famous line in Chinatown (1974) "Forget it Jake, it's Chinatown."

Phyllis Smith and Mindy Kaling's second movie since The 40 Year old Virgin.

Very similar in concept to the TV show "Herman's Head" (1991-1994)

Amy Poehler and Mindy Kaling who star together in this film have both also wrote for a "Deedle-Dee" show. Mindy Kaling for "The Office" and Amy Poehler for "Parks and Recreation""

The system of the console in Headquarters has a direct relationship with Riley's age. For example, when Riley was born, the console was very small and had only one button, in which when Joy pushed the button, it made Riley laugh and smile and when Sadness pushed, it made Riley cry and when the console got bigger and had more buttons and levers, that's when Riley grew older.

David Goelz and Frank Oz have worked together on multiple Muppet projects. They work together playing guards named after the other person (Frank's guard character is named after Dave and Dave's guard character is named after Frank).

Riley's father daydreams about either hockey or football (soccer) depending on the country of release.

Psychologists and other experts were consulted so the writers could make the way Riley's mind works scientifically accurate. For example, it is believed that short-term memories made during the day are converted into long-term memories during sleep, which is what happens in Riley's mind.

In the scene where Riley's dream about her new house turns into a nightmare, the music playing in the background is from the Disneyland attraction, The Haunted Mansion.

The dead mouse Riley spots upon entering her new house for the first time highly resembles Remy from Ratatouille.

EASTER EGG: When Joy and Sadness are passing through Imagination Land, a board game called "Find Me" with a cartoon Nemo on it can be seen.

Riley's family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco, similar to how Pete Docter is from Minnesota, but now lives in California to work at Pixar, which is just outside of San Francisco.

Bill Hader, who plays Fear, is the only voice actor from the five emotions who has previously done voice work for Pixar. He voiced Referee and Slug in Monsters University (2013).

In the scene where the police officers are interviewing Mrs. Cloud, one of them exclaims, "Forget Jake it, it's cloud town." This is a nearly identical quote to the end of Chinatown where Walsh says to Jake, "Forget it Jake, it's Chinatown."

The dinner scene where Riley's mom tries to get her husband's attention came from Pete Docter's own experience.

When Peter Docter and Jonas Rivera pitched the film to Mindy Kaling, she was moved to tears and said, "I think it's great that you guys are making a film that shows it's difficult to grow up and that it's okay to be sad about it." According to Pete Docter, they were like, "Quick! Write that down!"

Some of the memory balls in Riley's mind contain scenes from other Pixar movies, such as Carl and Ellie's wedding in Up (2009).

When Peter Docter and Jonas Rivera pitched the script of the film to Mindy Kaling, she was moved to tears. Her emotional response: I think it's great you guys are making a film that shows that it's difficult to grow up and that it's okay to be sad about it.

Very similar in concept to the TV show _'Herman's Head (1991-1994'_

The distinct personalities of the different emotions was inspired by the dwarfs in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).

The dinner scene where Riley's mom says, "Isn't that right, honey?" to get her husband's attention came from Pete Docter's own experience.

Anger reads newspapers with headlines about what's happening with Riley, such as "First Day of School" and "No Dessert."

The camera is often a bit out of focus when Riley is upset about something.

Also shown in IMAX 3D.

This is Michael Giacchino's fifth time composing the score for a Pixar feature film, and second time working with Pete Docter; his first time scoring a Pixar film was with The Incredibles (2004), and the last time he collaborated with Docter was on Up (2009), for which Giacchino won an Academy Award for Best Original Score.

When an Emotion interacts with the main console, it becomes tinted with the Emotion's respective color.

The fourth Pixar film to be rated PG, after The Incredibles (2004), Up (2009), and Brave (2012).

This is the first Pixar feature where the camera department has begun to model real lens sets to use as virtual tools; in this case the Cooke S4 and the Arri/Zeiss Ultra Primes. They shot lens distortion charts with each set, and imported that data into the virtual tool system. The Cookes were used to shoot the Real world, the Ultra Primes for the Mind.

Pete Docter's third feature film for Pixar after Monsters, Inc. (2001) and Up (2009)

There was early talk about using IMAX for the Mind scenes, but that idea was discarded.

The writers considered up to 27 different emotions, but settled on five (Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Fear and Anger) to make it less complicated. Some of the major emotions that ended up being cut included Surprise, Pride, and Trust.

According to director Pete Docter, each emotion is based on a shape: Joy is based on a star, Sadness is a teardrop, Anger is a fire brick, Fear is a raw nerve, and Disgust is broccoli. He noted that he likes broccoli very much, however.

Pete Docter's inspiration for this film came from watching his own daughter go through this turbulent part of growing up.

Pete Docter has said that this film was "one of the most challenging I've ever had to put together," because it has to tell what is going on with the girl and what is going on in her mind at the same time.

Pixar Animation Studios' fifteenth feature film.

Inside Out (2015) featured a small crew with only 45 animators, which is about half the size of previous films by Pixar.

Commenting on the unique character design, Pete Docter has said, "The characters are created with this energy because we are trying to represent what emotions would look like. They are made up of particles that actually move. Instead of skin and solid, it is a massive collection of energy."

Commenting on being offered the role of Disgust, Mindy Kaling said, "I'm not asked to do that many things. I think I am sort of very specific - the way I look and talk and what I am interested in. So I sort of resigned myself to writing my own work ... When I was asked to do this, the script was amazing. I went up to Pixar and I cried. I was just in a meeting with these guys and they showed me the story and I started weeping."

Phyllis Smith (who plays Sadness), Mindy Kaling (who plays Disgust), Bill Hader (who plays Fear), and Rashida Jones (who plays Cool Girl's Emotions) have previously starred together in The Office (2005). While Smith, Kaling, and Jones have recurring roles in The Office (2005), Hader had a cameo appearance in one episode.

The bubbly texture of the emotions was originally supposed to be just on Joy, but then due to the difficulty of animating this unique design, after eight months, the animators decided to scrap it altogether because it became unaffordable. However, when Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter saw it, he said, "That's great. Put it on all the characters." Commenting on this incident, production designer Ralph Eggleston said, "You could hear the core technical staff just hitting the ground, the budget falling through the roof. But it was all good. They found a way to make it work."

Production designer Ralph Eggleston worked for five and a half years on Inside Out. He said it's the longest he's ever worked on one film, and was the hardest process, too.

This vision of San Francisco is conceptually the opposite of the one in Big Hero 6 (2014). In fact, Riley's house in San Francisco is a real place. The address was changed; in the film it is 21 Royal St. which is also a new private dining space in Disneyland, near Club 33.

The idea behind the film was inspired by Pete Doctor's daughter, Ellie, who is also the voice of 'Ellie' from Up.
