Inside Out Without Any of the Inside Parts Is a Much Simpler Movie

Pixar’s Inside Out gave audiences an inventive, Technicolor glimpse into the usually opaque machinations of teenage emotion. But what if it didn’t? What if the film was just an average, cut-and-dry story of a family’s exhausting, not-so-smooth move to California?

That’s the premise of “Inside Out: Outside Edition,” a hypothetical by film student Jordan Hanzon that cuts Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and yes, Bing Bong, from the film, leaving Riley’s actions unexplained. The result: a story of a really moody girl who really hates San Francisco.
