Maya Hawke Voices New Anxiety Emotion in ‘Inside Out 2’ Trailer

Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 has dropped a teaser trailer with a new emotion, Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke, unexpectedly appearing and going down the rabbit hole of Riley’s now-teenage mind.

“Where can I put my stuff?” Anxiety asks the other voices in Riley’s head, her arms naturally filled with an array of baggage as animated characters in the sequel once again play physical representations of her emotions.

To make room for the new character, Riley’s mind also undergoes a surprise demolition to make room for Anxiety alongside an ensemble voice cast that includes Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear and Liza Lapira as Disgust.

Inside Out is considered a high watermark for Pixar, whose original crowd-pleasing film in the franchise earned $857.6 million globally and featured a then 11-year-old Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) as she moved across the country with her family.

“Our little girl is growing up so fast,” Riley’s mother says early on in the trailer as her parents give the young woman a big hug after she weathered a move to San Francisco. But it’s not long before the other emotions in the teenager’s tumultuous head are at a loss what to do with Anxiety as her animated character suddenly shows up and, not wanting to take a back seat to anyone, stirs things up in the headquarters that holds Riley’s memories.  

Directed by Kelsey Mann and produced by Mark Nielsen, Inside Out 2 will hit theaters in summer 2024.
