Michael Giacchino confirmed during the pre-concert conversation at the world premiere live-to-projection concert of Star Trek Into Darkness at the KKL Concert Hall in Lucerne, Switzerland this weekend that he will be scoring Pixar’s upcoming animated feature Inside Out. The film is directed by Pete Doctor and features the voice talent of Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith. The movie will be told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of an especially imaginative young girl. Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, Little Miss Sunshine) has written the screenplay. Jonas Rivera (Up) is producing the project. Giacchino has previously collaborated with Docter on the 2009 film Up, for which he received his first Academy Award. The composer has also scored Pixar’s The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Cars 2, as well as numerous shorts of the studio and the TV special Toy Story of Terror. Inside Out is set to be released on June 19, 2015 by Walt Disney Pictures.
Giacchino also mentioned that he has one more day of recording scheduled for both Jupiter Ascending and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes when he returns to the States next month following an appearance at a couple of Star Trek concerts this week at London’s Royal Albert Hall. A soundtrack for the Planet of the Apes sequel is already set to be released on July 8 by Sony Masterworks. The composer’s other upcoming projects also include Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland and Jurassic World.
