Did you know the five core emotions depicted in 'Inside Out' were based on different concepts?

In the Disney-Pixar ‘Inside Out’ universe, the main characters are the Emotions, central to the franchise's narrative. The animated film ‘Inside Out’ uniquely tells the story through the perspective of five pivotal Emotions residing in the mind of a young girl Riley as she navigates across the country with her family. These Emotions—Joy, Disgust, Anger, Fear, and Sadness—interact dynamically, revealing the impact of different emotional states on Riley's thoughts and actions.

In each individual's mind, whether human, animal, or occasionally even an object, these Emotions are responsible for governing their mental processes. Typically, one Emotion assumes a central leadership role within the group. For Riley Andersen, Joy takes the helm, directing most of Riley's behaviors. Conversely, Anger steers her father's thoughts, while Sadness oversees her mother's mind.

The appearance of each Emotion is metaphorically based on various concepts: Joy resembles a star and a burst of energy, Anger is likened to a firebrick, Disgust mirrors broccoli, Fear embodies a raw nerve, and Sadness manifests as a teardrop. Newer Emotions like Anxiety are symbolically represented by electricity, Envy by a mushroom, Ennui by a limp noodle, Embarrassment by a blush, and Nostalgia by taupe.

Additionally, each Emotion is distinguished by its unique colour scheme: Joy in yellow, Anger in red, Sadness in blue, Disgust in green, Fear in purple, Anxiety in orange, Envy in teal, Embarrassment in pink, Ennui in indigo, and Nostalgia in taupe. These vibrant representations underscore the diversity of emotional experiences and their profound influence on human behaviour within the imaginative world of ‘Inside Out.’
