The wait for Disney and Pixar's new animated movie Inside Out is ALMOST over. (In fact, select theaters are even showing the film as early as tonight at 7pm!) While we have every intention to be the first ones in line on Friday when it officially comes out, we're still enjoying bits and pieces from our interview with Kaitlyn Dias, who voices Riley.
Inside Out introduces us to a plethora of new characters, showing us it actually takes a surprising amount of characters to make up just one: Riley. (You know what they say, "it takes a village.") Inside Riley's mind, Anger, Sadness, Joy, Fear, and Disgust exist and they're all mini versions of her. We asked Kaitlyn to pick her favorite character from the film and her answer might surprise you!
"One of my favorites would have to be Anger because he’s just absolutely hilarious," Kaitlyn EXCLUSIVELY dishes to M. "When things will get frustrating for Riley, he’ll either just absolutely blow up or get really excited about being angry. His facial expressions are priceless."
Speaking of those "priceless" facial expressions, they make for excellent GIFs, don't they? ;)
Kaitlyn also dropped another major bombshell we didn't realize was a part of the film when we asked her to name her favorite scene. Kaitlyn revealed that Riley has an imaginary friend!
"Probably any of [the scenes] with Bing-Bong, Riley’s imaginary friend in it," she reveals. "He is quite the character. He’s absolutely hilarious. She kind of forgets about him later on but he just sticks around in the back of her mind."
We think it's so cool that we get to see the concept of Riley's imaginary friend from the perspective of inside her mind. And Bing-Bong's physical appearance does not disappoint! Just check out what he looks like:
