In this film, Tony Hale has replaced Bill Hader as the English voice of Fear. The plot follows teenager Riley (Kensington Tallman) trying to navigate the world of friends, school and hockey with the help of her emotions, including Joy (Joy, Amy Poehler), Fury (Anger, Lewis Black) and Sadness, Phyllis Smith.

In this production, some new emotions have been introduced to accompany Riley’s maturity (including Anxiety, played by Maya Hawke). To delve a little deeper into the evolving storyHale sat down to talk about what makes “Inside Out 2” a perfect insight into emotional life for kids and adults alike.

Q: I heard you were a big fan of the first movie. How did you feel when they called you to participate in “Inside Out 2”?

Every time Pixar calls you, it’s like a Pavlovian leap, or automatic. Every time you get invited to that party, it’s very exciting. But the first movie was, and I mean this very seriously, not only my favorite animated movie, it was practically one of my favorite movies of all time. The way Pixar has orchestrated emotional life and made it very accessible, that’s a game changer because obviously we know that emotional life is very complex. Making it accessible to both adults and children is brilliant.

Q: What were your initial thoughts about playing the character of Fear?

I’ve had a lot of experience in that, so I had a lot to draw from. My immediate question had to do more with the difference between fear and anxiety. How they distinguish them… They said that anxiety is a perceived threat, while fear is a real threat. That made everything very clear to me.

And the voice acting in general is something off the charts, you’re never really with the other cast members. You trust the director a lot to keep giving you stories, and he has to play with different voices. He (Kelsey Mann) always said, he’s fine, let’s go higher or a little lower. It’s a truly collaborative experience.

Q: I have a question, since you are interpreting such a specific emotion, was there another level of something you had to do to represent that through your voice alone?

Yes, having performed as a comedian for a long time, with comedy I relied a lot on my physicality, whether it was like a sideways glance or looking nervous. With the voiceover, when I started doing it, I had some anxiety, for lack of a better word, getting into it and worrying that I wouldn’t be able to do it with just a microphone and without my body.

But then I learned to do the same acting in front of the microphone that I would do in front of the camera, whether in “Toy Story” or in this movie, just acting like an unhinged person in front of the microphone in the hope of conveying that same energy to the character. And it’s incredible. It’s like you’re doing theater for children. It is super fun.

Q: Another fun part of this movie is seeing the visual representation of emotions. I loved Nostalgia in this production. Were there other characters that stood out to you in that way?

Wow… The first one, obviously Sadness. Seeing her sad state was always something very sweet. But with these new emotions, again, the brilliance of Pixar, the fact that Anxiety comes with baggage is very cool, that she has that crazy hair and is bright orange. Shame is pink… I mean, the whole characteristic of each of them is so cool. And even the distinction between Dislike and Envy, I love it.

It’s just a way for children and parents – and anyone – to see emotions in a different light. And on top of that, just having compassion for the emotions… The emotions are trying to help you, they’re not against you. I know that when I was a teenager, I felt very alone. There was that image of the demolition entering the emotional world, ruining everything. And that’s how I felt.

I thought, what happened to my body? Why are my senses so affected by things? I consider myself a nervous person, and even more so with that kind of thing. And having simple language, simple characters that just visually describe what’s going on in the mind, is something that just hasn’t been done (before).

Q: What do you hope this sequel brings to fans of the first film and new fans?

I wish we had this movie a few years ago when my daughter was a teenager. I think the feeling of children feeling seen is very important. But for adults, and I mean specifically parents, it’s that feeling of, “oh, there’s that character,” like Boredom (Ennui). She sits and gets bored. When my daughter was on the couch, I told her, get up, get up. What’s going on? I’m just realizing it’s part of the process.

She’s trying to figure it out, there’s a lot going on in their brains. They need to rest just to have that framework that allows them to be more tolerant of each other and of ourselves. But again, the simple and brilliant way they expressed it in this animated form is a gift to all of us. ‘

“Inside Out 2” premiered in theaters on June 14.
