Inside Out 2 refers to the 2024 Pixar animation film, intended as a sequel to the 2015 movie Inside Out. The animated film premiered in theaters in June 2024 with fairly positive reviews, inspiring discourse, fan art and memes, especially about the Anxiety character and the First Look at Inside Out's New Emotion Character exploitable meme.


Inside Out 2 was first announced during the Disney's D23 Expo on September 9th, 2022. The movie follows Riley, who just turned 13 and is about to enter high school.

The announcement[1] (seen below) amassed more than 30,000 likes and 8,300 reposts in two years.

So let's talk about Anxiety the character.

You know how everyone hated that gremlin from the word "go"? Well, as it turns out the hate is justified, because…

We got a villain! A pretty straightforward one too!

So I say this as someone who didn't really like the first one all that much; the sequel is better… but only in a vacuum. You gotta excuse a lot of retconning and a way too soft ending, but honestly, it was a good time with all that aside.
