Emotions at Play Exhibit Opens January 27 Featuring Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ at Please Touch Museum

"Who's your friend who likes to play? Bing Bong Bing Bong!"

The 2015 Pixar film ‘Inside Out’ features 11-year-old Riley who has just moved across the country with her parents. We meet the emotions in her head as characters – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust, and Sadness (and we can’t forget her old imaginary friend, Bing Bong). As Riley and her emotions adjust to a new life in San Francisco Joy tries her best to keep things positive, and we all learn some important emotional lessons by the end.
