Ayo Edebiri as Envy

Inside Out 2 invites us to revisit the intricate world of emotions, offering a fresh and unique experience. As a sequel to the beloved original, it had high expectations to meet, but it manages to capture the same enchantment while introducing innovative elements. In Inside Out 2, a now 13-year-old Riley’s mind is a bustling hub of old and new emotions. Anxiety steals the spotlight while Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear return. Let us dive into the latest additions at Headquarters:

  1. Anxiety (Maya Hawke):  Maya Hawke’s performance as Anxiety is undeniably fantabulous, adding depth and relatability to the character. Her portrayal resonates with our experiences, making us feel understood and empathetic. We have all had those moments, haven’t we?
  2. Envy (Ayo Edebiri): The green-eyed monster. Envy, a relentless observer of Riley’s peers, is always comparing their achievements and possessions. It is a perpetual struggle to keep Envy’s influence in check.
  3. Ennui (Adèle Exarchopoulos): The embodiment of boredom. Ennui sighs, “What’s the point?” as Riley navigates mundane tasks. However, sometimes, even boredom sparks unexpected adventures. Ennui’s sighs are so deep, they could be mistaken for a gust of wind, and her presence adds a unique twist to Riley’s emotional landscape.
  4. Embarrassment (Paul Walter Hauser): The blusher. Embarrassment flares up during awkward moments—tripping in the cafeteria or flubbing a presentation. Riley’s face turns as red as a ripe tomato.

This unique blend of emotions sets the stage for teenage drama—a potent mix of angst, longing, and self-discovery. Get ready for Riley’s emotional rollercoaster, as it is about to take off with unexpected twists and turns!
