New 'Inside Out' Stills Showcase Orbs and the Train of Thought

With just five months to go until the release of Inside Out, promotion for the film is beginning to pick up speed. Two new stills from the film have surfaced, the first of which features Joy and Sadness aboard the literal embodiment of the Train of Thought. In the background, we get our first real look at the expansive world of 11-year-old Riley's mind beyond the control hub that has been showed in all previous stills and trailers. This is the first time we get to see just how vast the mind really is.

The second still shows Joy in the aforementioned control hub of the mind, with shelves in the background stocked with the memory orbs that appear to play a large role in the film. From the looks of things, each orb takes on the color of the emotion linked with the particular memory stored in that orb. The yellow orbs contain happy memories, the green ones have memories of disgust, and so forth.

Overall, Inside Out remains shrouded in secret, but personally I think that is for the best. It is hard to know what to expect in a film this ambitious, and the folks at Pixar are using this to their advantage, teasing us bit by bit, leaving us hungry for more. It's a brilliant strategy, really.

Expect to see many more stills and other promotion material for Inside Out in the coming months as the film's release draws nearer.

Inside Out hits theaters June 19th!

Side note: this marks the 500th post on this blog!
