U.S. Release Date:                    June 19, 2015
Director:                                   Pete Docter
Co-Director:                              Ronnie del Carmen
Producer:                                  Jonas Rivera

From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind. 

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

·       Director Pete Docter is the Academy Award®-winning director of “Up.” He made his directorial debut with Disney•Pixar‘s smash hit “Monsters, Inc.,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best animated feature film. Along with John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton, Docter developed the story and characters for “Toy Story,” Pixar‘s first full-length feature film, for which he also served as supervising animator. He served as a storyboard artist on “A Bug’s Life” and wrote the initial story treatment for “Toy Story 2.” As one of Pixar Animation Studios’ key creative contributors, Docter garnered an Academy Award nomination for his original story credit on Disney•Pixar’s Golden Globe®- and Oscar®-winning “WALL•E.”
·       Jonas Rivera produced the Academy Award®-winning “Up,” for which he was nominated for best picture. Prior to “Up,” he had worked on nearly every Pixar film since joining Pixar Animation Studios in 1994, beginning with “Toy Story” for which he served as production office assistant. His subsequent credits include “A Bug’s Life” (as art department coordinator), “Toy Story 2” (as a marketing and creative resources coordinator), “Monsters, Inc.” (as art department manager) and the Golden Globe®-winning “Cars” (as production manager).

Coach White and the McFarland students have a lot to learn about each other but when White starts to realize the boys’ exceptional running ability, things begin to change. Soon something beyond their physical gifts becomes apparent—the power of family relationships, their unwavering commitment to one another and their incredible work ethic. With grit and determination, the unlikely band of runners eventually overcomes the odds to forge not only a championship cross-country team but an enduring legacy as well. Along the way, Coach White realizes that his family finally found a place to call home and both he and his team achieve their own kind of American dream.

INTO THE WOODS is rated PG and is now playing in theatres everywhere!


·               Production on “Into the Woods” began in September, 2013 at Shepperton Studios and on
            locations throughout England.

·               Stephen Sondheim has received eight Tony® Awards, more than any other composer in
history. He has won seven times: Best Music and Best Lyrics for “Company” (1971); and Best
Score for “Follies” (1972), “A Little Night Music” (1973), “Sweeney Todd” (1979), “Into the
Woods” (1988) and “Passion” (1994). His eighth honor was a 2008 Special Tony Award for
Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre.

·               The foundation of the Woods set, built on Stage H at Shepperton Studios, was made up of
2,000 tons of soil, over 600 ferns, acres and acres of ivy and countless pallets of moss and turf.

·               95 percent of the trees used on the Woods set were real trees, which included 30-foot pine
trees and hundreds of 25-foot oak tree branches, the leaves of which had to be removed and replaced with artificial ones (so they would last longer). The remaining five percent were full-sized whimsical trees constructed from plaster.

·               There were four cows cast to play Milky-White. Their names were Tug, Diamond, Two Fold
and Pearl.

·               Rapunzel’s hair in the film is 20 feet long.  The braid is made from real hair and weighs
almost six pounds.

·               The music for the film was pre-recorded over a two-week period at Angel Studios in London
            with a 56-piece orchestra, composed of some of the best musicians from the London
            Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic.
