Pixar launches Vice-versa 2
Disney and Pixar have confirmed the sequel to “Vice-versa” at the D23 convention. A feature film that will take place during Riley’s teenage years will be released in the summer of 2024.
When released in 2015, Pixar Studios took the audience into Riley’s head Vice-versa, and more precisely, into the little girl’s control center. A place where the optimistic Joy, the nervous Anger, the skeptical Disgust, the worried Fear and the desperate Sadness cohabit.
Although these emotions struggle to maintain some semblance of balance, they are at a loss as to how to handle the situation when the girl and her parents move to a big city. Things get more complicated when Joy and Sadness get lost in the limbo of Riley’s mind, venturing into strange places like Abstract Thought and Dream Production.
A profoundly moving work that brings a difficult transition period for a child to life from the inside, managing to materialize complex concepts with simplicity, Vice-versa, won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2016.
At the D23 convention, where the first images of the live-action The Little Mermaid and the trailer for Once Upon a Time 2 were unveiled, Disney made the sequel to Vice Versa official. Kelsey Mann, screenwriter of the feature film Arlo’s Journey and animator on Monsters Academy and Forward, is taking over from Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen as director.
The beautiful voice of comedian Amy Poehler will return to lend her voice to Joie. No information on the plot has been revealed for the moment, except that the film will take place during Riley’s teenage years.
Expect Vice Versa 2 to be released in the summer of 2024. Before then, Pixar fans can discover Elemental and Elio, the studio’s next projects, which are revealed through first glimpses, to be found below:
