When asked whether Disney/Pixar would release a film with a black lead character, much like Dreamworks' Home earlier this spring, Lasseter talked about the importance of having female and ethnic characters. He also said that audiences will see this in future films.

In 2016 Disney is releasing Moana about a Polynesian princess, which is a lot different than the "traditional" European princesses depicted in many Disney fairytales.

Inside Out stars the voice talents of Mindy Kaling, Phylliss Smith, and Amy Poehler. It tells the story of a young girl's emotions (Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger, and Fear) and the chaos created when that girl moves to a new town.

The film was inspired by director Pete Docter's own daughter, who also provided a voice of the girl in the film Up.

Inside Out has been met with positive reviews at the Cannes Film Festival this week. It opens in theaters nationwide on June 16.

What do you think of Disney/Pixar's plans to include more diverse characters in its films? Leave us a comment and let us know.

I am not so foolish wedding dresses as michael kors outlet to believe that all intellectuals are rendered sterile by capitalism. There may be some who, in the ivory tower, are even now creating treasures which prada handbags only a future nike outlet and more fortunate age will appreciate. ghd Others nike trainers there certainly are who have successfully surmounted their bourgeois imitations, and are playing converse,scarpe converse,converse italia,converse sito ufficiale,converse all star a great oakley sunglasses part in the cultural change. But one and all chi flat iron are hampered. Many who abercrombie and fitch are haunted by sac guess an obscure sense of the futility of contemporary society and their own lives, are yet unable to break abercrombie and fitch loose michael kors from the dead hand of the hermes past. They cannot giuseppe zanotti conceive of a better true religion outlet society and a better ferragamo shoes culture, and oakley sunglasses so ray ban,rayban,occhiali ray ban they cannot timberland boots look forward with true religion jeans hope. louboutin Their minds michael kors are over-clouded with a vague dread of the disintegration of their vanessa bruno world. air force On the other hand baseball bats many who do succeed in breaking michael kors outlet away break out into christian louboutin outlet extravagance. They throw nike free out the marc jacobs baby with the bathwater. Or rather they bury the legacy with the corpse. sac longchamp They spurn everything kate spade outlet in nfl jerseys the traditional culture, and praise uncritically everything lululemon which purports to tiffany and co jewelry belong longchamp to the new.But to be aware of a danger is nike roshe run to be forearmed against it. oakley pas cher And to louboutin be aware of two opposite dangers, namely of capitalist oakley,occhiali oakley,oakley italia and of toms shoes anti-capitalist herve leger prejudice, is michael kors outlet to find in each nike air max a defence against the other. Moreover I remind myself that one of the ways in which coach purses a revolutionary culture might be expected to err is in a tendency to jimmy choo shoes do less replica watches than justice to the ideas of the social order nike air max which it air max,nike air max intends to instyler overthrow. true religion jeans In particular it is likely mulberry to disparage or ignore such of the perennial human values as the old culture has pharisaically praised and betrayed. Contemporary hollister proletarian and babyliss would-be proletarian literature, though some coach outlet of it is splendidly sincere and creative, reveals converse outlet none the less the effects of this blindness. This exaggerated rejection of all nike air max traditional north face values, birkin bag just because they are traditional, ralph lauren uk has, I believe, damaged the cause of the revolutionaries longchamp by repelling many moderate people hollister who might replica watches otherwise have joined them.The first heroic party declares that the only way to reform the world air max is to persuade masses of louboutin,louboutin outlet,louboutin outlet italia people to ralph lauren,polo ralph lauren,ralph lauren outlet,ralph lauren italia,ralph lauren sito ufficiale become far more kindly and reasonable burberry outlet online than usual, in fact to valentino shoes become saints. swarovski Nothing, we are told, louboutin shoes but a change of montre pas cher heart, a coach factory outlet spiritual change, can save the world. The second heroic party insists chanel handbags that no such widespread change of heart can be gucci outlet created by mere exhortation, and that we must begin by changing the hollister,abercrombie,hollister sito ufficiale,abercrombie italia,abercrombie and fitch,abercrombie outlet structure of society. Only when conditions are supra shoes favourable, they say, can minds develop sanely. To raise men iphone 6 cases to michael kors outlet a higher hogan degree of air max moral integrity without first improving their nike huarache,nike huaraches,nike air huarache conditions would be to burberry perform a miracle. nike free To this the first party replies that you vans,vans scarpe,vans italia cannot change conditions without first creating timberland a widespread polo ralph lauren outlet desire to converse pas cher do so; and true religion jeans we are nearly all too nike free run uk selfish or cowardly lancel to risk much even for the sake wedding dresses of the new world. nike air max The root of our michael kors outlet trouble is something to do with the quality hollister of individual bottega veneta minds. So long north face outlet as vans shoes most men remain the frail or base creatures that pandora charms they are, kate spade handbags social revolution, it mcm handbags is insisted, juicy couture outlet cannot polo lacoste pas cher produce anything but a fresh tyranny. In this view, what we need is to be shaken out of vans pas cher our lethargy, wakened into a more insanity workout lucid and vigorous frame of mind. north face Appeal must be made to our noblest mont blanc impulses. All else will michael kors outlet follow. So new balance we are told.The two views are expressed most strikingly by two kinds of people whom I shall call the saints and the revolutionaries. I shall use soccer shoes the word hollister pas cher "saint" in rather a polo ralph lauren outlet special sense. The genuine saint, whatever his religion, and reebok shoes even if p90x workout he claims asics running shoes to have no religion, feels that pandora jewelry unless he first learns to know himself in relation to the universe or in relation to what ray ban sunglasses he calls his beats by dre God, coach outlet and unless he north face outlet thereby links of london gains self-mastery, ralph lauren he lululemon can neither know what is truly desirable air jordan pas cher nor have the strength to live in service thomas sabo of his fellows. hollister The tiffany and co genuine ray ban pas cher revolutionary, burberry on the other hand, feels that to worry about his own soul is selfish and mean. Instead of brooding on himself as a unique individual, he seeks to understand longchamp outlet society, its origins, its present condition, and his own true function in it. He seeks ray ban uk this nike blazer understanding in nike roshe order that he may be able to sac longchamp act effectively, that he may be mac cosmetics an effective instrument juicy couture outlet of the historical forces which, he believes, are pressing toward a far-reaching social celine handbags change.Though there tory burch outlet is much in common in the characters of the saint and the revolutionary at gucci,borse gucci,gucci sito ufficiale,gucci outlet their best, longchamp outlet their tn pas cher attitudes to human society louboutin outlet are very different. michael kors In general, any ordinary person who feels the importance of the values to pandora charms which saints are loyal is a poor revolutionary; and ordinary nike roshe "good revolutionaries" are not as a rule jordan shoes saints in the sense that I am karen millen giving to the word. They may and ought to new balance pas cher be "social saints", in the sense of soccer jerseys being wholly nike air max devoted to the cause of creating coach outlet a new society. But revolutionaries prada outlet generally lack that "inner life" which, rightly oakley sunglasses or wrongly, the saint regards swarovski crystal as the root of all strength and ray ban sunglasses understanding.
