While the film takes place in the mind of 11-year old Riley, as she copes with the struggles of moving to a new city and attending a new school, the lead protagonist is in fact Joy - one of five emotions including Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. The new image has us intrigued and can you guess why? Take a look at the bag that Joy is carrying, it's covered with images of candy, which makes us wonder if each of the five emotion characters each have a similar bag (based on their emotions).
UPDATED December 29 - Just moments ago our loyal reader (@MaxdHartog03) showed us that a new Inside Out image was released on Empire Online. The still features the group of the five emotions huddled together in Riley's mind watching a 'Joy'ous memory from Riley's past (in what appears to be the snowy Midwest). While we cannot say for sure, but this image would appear to be after Riley's move to San Fransisco - perhaps, after the argument scene with her father from the official trailer when she goes to her room?
