Joy's Decline Deleted Scene from Inside Out

One of the best things about my job is that I get to see lots of movies, however in case you haven’t figured it out yet, my love of Disney movies is strong. Disney movies have always been a source of inspiration for me, and with each movie they release you can count on it being a great story-line, filled with fun characters and of course backed by research. Which allows kids, adults and everyone in between to fall in love with Disney characters whether they are classics or newly released characters.

Inside Out is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite Disney movies because it tells a fabulous story of a girl named Riley. But instead of just telling a story we are allowed into Riley’s head where we learn about the emotions behind the feelings. The story focuses on the five main emotions including Fear, Disgust, Sadness, Joy, and Anger. Throughout the movie we learn a little more about each of the emotions, but quickly learn that no matter what we think we need all of them but especially Joy and Sadness. 

Sadness and Joy

The world is always changing as we grow older and Disney has captured it all in true Disney form. Check out the exclusive deleted scene “Joy’s Decline” today!
