Das Animationsstudio Pixar bringt mit Alles steht Kopf (engl.: Inside Out) wieder einen Film in die Kinos, der auf einer originellen Prämisse basiert: die Protagonisten des Filmes sind die Emotionen im Kopf eines jungen Mädchens.

With 2 sequels to Toy Story and one unwanted sequel to Cars Pixar was no longer delivering one original movie after the other. Last year they returned to original territory with Brave with mixed results.

When I saw the product…
I was pretending I didn’t see this movie.

2011 will probably mark the first year where Pixar is not the lock for the best animated Oscar category seeing how Cars 2 got ripped apart (German speaking countries have to wait until 27th July to judge for themselves if those reviews are accurate). Maybe people were too harsh on Cars 2 because it is made by Pixar and looking at the trailers it seems more like a Dreamworks cashgrab instead of a sequel like Toy Story 2 and 3 – but then again Pixar has set the bar so high they are bound to get measured differently.

Thankfully 2012 will mark Pixar’s return to original stories with Brave:
