Disclaimer I was given a review copy of this movie

Disney's Pixar Inside Out

My boys and I so missed this movie when it was in theaters!  We of course were down with some sort of sickness and never got to go see it!  Poor little Quinn was heart broken he really REALLY wanted to see this movie and even tried to bargain with my sister to take him.
Sadly we never got there, so it was with high anticipation we awaited the DVD/ Blu-Ray release date..
From the imaginative minds of Disney-Pixar comes Inside Out on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere October 13th and on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack and On-Demand November 3rd! Additionally, along with the extensive line-up of bonus features including deleted scenes, the theatrical short film LAVA and “Paths to Pixar: The Women of InsideOut,” comes the all-new animated short “Riley’s First Date?”
 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. 

This movie had some pretty big shoes to fill.  Quinn couldn't wait for it to be released and when he finally got to see I have to see it must have exceeded his expectations!!  As I type this post he is watching it for the 2nd time and I can hear him giggling behind me :)
A sound as his mother that I adore.
The characters are cute, EVEN ANGER!!  When watching the movie you get to see Riley work through her emotions.  Riley's family moves to a different home and this seems to triggers something inside of her.  She seems to break a bit and shut down.  It is up to the emotions to get back to headquarters and save the day.
Joy works so hard all the time to try and make Riley feel happy and we start to see the toll it can take to always wear a happy face even when you are feeling something else.
I love that the message is clear though to children that it is okay to express your feelings.  That you don't always need to be happy (joyous) 
At the end of the movie I cried.  I'm sure anyone who watched it will know why.  The movie isn't at all sad, it is touching and very heart felt.
I loved the journey through Riley's emotions and past.  I love that the movie let you know it is okay for memories to be both sad and happy.  That it is okay to let go of certain things.

Don't miss this movie!  As an adult or child this movie is a must see.  I wasn't going to sit down and watch it with my boys, but I am so happy that I did.

My boys loved the short film!  This was just as cute as the movie :)

Overall this movie is a hit!  One of Pixar's greatest films and I have a feeling people are going to be talking about it for a very long time.
