Early this morning as the official selections of the prestigious 68th annual Cannes Film Festival were revealed, we waited with anticipation to see if Inside Out would be included on the roster. After much speculation this past month, we now have confirmation that Inside Out will have its World Premiere at the festival this upcoming May. This will be director Pete Docter's and producer Jonas Rivera's second time at Cannes - having previously been there for UP (the first animated film ever to be shown as the Festival's Opening Ceremony film). Joining the duo this time around will be co-director Ronnie Del Carmen, along with several members of the English-language vocal cast.
“We are overjoyed at being included in this year's official selection at Cannes,” said Docter. “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.”
UPDATED May 13 - Inside Out will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18 in the Grand Theatre. The first screening will take place at 11:00 AM followed by an additional screening later that evening at 7:15 PM.
