The duo of Pixar and Walt Disney Studios is one of the most successful duos in the industry and has expertise in the animation world, but despite this, the past few times have not gone well for both, and the production has faced back-to-back losses. After the success of some years, some decisions by the production have resulted in huge losses, be it overestimating the buzz or cost. Pixar and Walt Disney Studios are now ready to release the sequel to Inside Out and are not prepared to make any compromise on the cost. That’s what the reports are revealing.

According to production sources, the animated sequel Inside Out 2 is also a massively budgeted film, and Pixar/Walt Disney Studios spent around $185–200 million to produce the film before marketing expenses. The $200 million cost of the film also makes it one of the most expensive films of the year for Disney and the movie industry, alongside Gladiator 2, Deadpool 3, Dune: Part Two, Argylle, and Joker: Folie à Deux. It’s also going to be the second-most expensive animated film of the year for Disney, after Moana 2

Compared to Inside Out, the sequel is more expensive than the original one. The production cost for Inside Out is around $175 million, while the $200 million for the sequel expresses the desire for success for Pixar and Walt Disney Studios. However, it’s also a fact that Inside Out was produced by Disney more than eight years ago. It’s not just about cost; Inside Out was also a blockbuster with a total gross of $858 million. Inside Out 2 needs to repeat the success of the first film because this success projection is the reason why the makers are spending so much. But I am sorry to say that it will not be easy to repeat the success of Inside Out because the industry is currently running at a low level.

Let us tell you that Walt Disney spares no effort in making each of his films luxurious, but this time the production has also spent money on the voice cast. According to reports, the production spent around $5 million to cast Amy Poehler and $100k for other cast members[1]. Apart from production costs, Disney is also spending a lot on marketing. Disney also ran multi-million-dollar promotional campaigns for the film at Super Bowl LVIII and CinemaCon. There is no doubt that Pixar and Disney have spent a lot, but now the success of the film has become even more important. 

Talking about Inside Out 2, then directed by Kelsey Mann, Inside Out 2 will be released in the United States on June 14, 2024. More to Read: Is Inside Out 2 on Netflix or Disney Plus?
