The World Science Festival offered families the chance to attend the first New York City advance screening of Disney-Pixar’s 2015 summer release, Inside Out.
The film takes place inside the mind of Riley, an eleven-year-old girl. Her emotions, including Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader) and Disgust (Mindy Kaling), compete for control of Riley’s mind as she struggles to adjust to a new life in a new city. Following the screening, there was a special talk about how our brains actually work led by neuroscientists Heather McKellar and Kelley Remole. Guests also got to see a real, specially-treated human brain.
Inside Out is set to open in U.S. theatres on June 19, 2015.
