Inside Out was the movie released in 2015, directed by Peter Docter featuring voices such as Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith, Mindy Kaling, Richard Kind, Kyle MacLachlan, Lewis Black, Kaityln Dias and Diane Lane. 

The film has recieved great appreciation from critics as well as the audience, still known to be one of the best animated movies so far. 

Inside Out was all about Riley being in her toddler phase trying to learn how her emotions work and manage them. 

There were primarily five emotions that were personified in the film : happiness, fear, disgust, anger and sadness. 

Riley, who has been supressing her sadness as the personified emotions in her head were trying to keep her happy, eventually came to know Riley has to face her sadness, and go through all the emotions to be truly happy and content. 

In this second installment, Riley will be in her teenage years which is only going to make things complex and more chaotic in her head. 

A 15 year old girl certainly goes through hormonal changes in her body and mind, so there will be a lot going on. 

Also, adolscene is a time when your emotions are most heightened and hay-wired, so there will be new emotions for sure creating new types of problems.
