This post is Sponsored by Pixar but my opinions are 100% my own!
Every store you walk into right now that sells movies has Inside Out right front and center. It was released this week on Blu-ray and DVD and now you can add it to your home movie collection. My girls were so excited for this to arrive because they fell in love with it in the theaters. If you didn’t see it, you have to! It’s a must see family movie. Everyone will love it!
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Disney-Pixar’s “Inside Out” takes an exciting and hilarious journey into the mind to find the answer. Based in Headquarters, the control center of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy. She strives to make sure Riley stays happy as she operates alongside fellow emotions Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. It’s “an instant classic,” raves Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times. Experience it like never before on Disney Blu-ray!
Of course, there is tons of bonus material on the blu-ray. Always one of our favorite parts of getting the blu-ray.
