Animation fans are waiting with bated breath for Disney/Pixar’s “Inside Out” and for some the weight will be over when the film will have its world premiere at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival!

“Inside Out” is directed by Oscar winner Pete Docter, who also directed the first animated film to be Cannes’ opening ceremony film, Disney/Pixar’s “Up.” Docter, co-director Ronnie Del Carmen and producer Jonas Rivera (both of whom also worked on “Up”) will be at Cannes for the peremie, as well as members of the voice acting cast.

Docter is happy to be a part of the Cannes film lineup. “We are overjoyed at being included in this year’s official selection at Cannes,” he said in a statement. “With ‘Inside Out,’ we spent years imagining – and then building – never-before-seen settings and characters within the mind. It was an incredible, fun and exciting challenge and now we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

You can take a look at an exclusive clip below the post. What do you think about the film? Give your opinions in the comments section below! “Inside Out” will be in theaters June 19.

“Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.

When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.”
