The MPAA rating for June Inside out 2 was posted to FilmRatings.com and in a not particularly shocking move, Pixar’s animated film was rated PG for “some thematic elements.”

The first Inside out film, released nine years ago, was also given a PG rating for similar reasons to its sequel: “mild thematic elements and some action.”

While Pixar’s production can occasionally tackle some heavy themes and topics (look no further than 2009’s) Upwards (as proof of that), the studio’s films are always adventures that the whole family can easily enjoy.

All Pixar films are rated G or PG. Since Pixar itself is owned by The Walt Disney Corporation, it is highly unlikely that future films will receive a higher rating.

What can you expect from Inside Out 2

Just like the first movie, Inside out 2 follows the daily life of Riley Andersen. Riley was 11 years old at the time Inside out, but the sequel will portray her as a teenager, with all the trials and tribulations of adolescence that come with it.

Riley’s emotions, represented by colorful avatars of different states of being, will also join in the fun. Amy Poehler reprises her role as Joy, with Phillis Smith and Lewis Black joining her as Sadness and Anger, respectively.

However, fear and loathing have been rearranged. Tony Hale will replace Bill Hader as the former, and Liza Lapira will play the latter, originally voiced by Mindy Kaling.

Also promising to throw a spanner in the works are a host of brand new emotions that are introduced into Riley’s system at the onset of puberty. These include fear, whose voice is provided by Stranger thingsMaya Hawke.


Pixars Inside out 2 will be in cinemas from Friday 14 June.
