INSIDE OUT TV Series Based on Popular Films Headed to Disney+ Among Other New Titles — GeekTyrant

It was announced this week by Jim Morris, the president of Pixar, that an Inside Out TV series is currently in the works at Disney+ and it’s set to premiere on the streaming service in 2025. Bloomberg reported that the series is titled Dream Productions and it’s “set in the Inside Out universe of Riley’s dreams.” 

2015’s Inside Out takes place inside the mind of 11-year-old girl Riley, whose anthropomorphized emotions — Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader) — operate from Emotional Headquarters.

Also housed in Riley’s brain: Dream Productions, a full-fledged Hollywood studio that produces her dreams and nightmares, like the imaginary movies I’m Falling for a Very Long Time Into a Pit, I Can Fly!, Something’s Chasing Me!, and Fairy Dream Adventure – Part 7, starring Rainbow Unicorn.

It was also announced that Pixar’s first-ever series, Win or Lose, is also in development, and it will follow different players of a little league team on their way to the finals over its eight-episode season. It’s set to hit the streamer later this year.

Morris also revealed that Pixar is considering third installments of its Incredibles and Finding Nemo movie franchises for theaters, but the company will wait to see how its first two shows perform before greenlighting future series for Disney+.

Morris told Bloomberg:

“I hope that we will not release another feature film on Disney+. If we do more stuff for Disney+, it should be a series, and then that makes a clean demarcation between what we do for theaters and what we do for streaming.”

There was an era in which Disney released many new films to their streaming service in lieu of theatrical release, but that was amid the pandemic, and when theatres were either closed, or not quite at their full capacities yet. It makes sense that moving forward, the company would move back to movies in theatres before streaming, and reserving the service for streaming new series.

I look forward to each of these new projects!
