Ok so she’s not famous…Yet. Though, as a parent of a four year old, I’m incredibly excited for my daughter’s feature film voice debut in the newest Pixar release Inside Out. She only has 4-6 lines in the whole movie, but when I hear them I know it’s her and that’s all that matters. Her voice is one of many that plays young Riley. In her case it’s the 3 year old memory of Riley playing hockey and singing the “Bing Bong Song”. Listen for it in the first 10 minutes.
Although the two recording sessions were over a year ago, every time she goes to mommy’s work she asks, do I get to sing the “Bing Bong Song?” It’s just one of those really great memories I hope she never ever forgets. Plus the fact for the rest of her life she’ll always be able to say she had a part in a movie, and has the screen credit to prove it.
Waiting for the film to be released and to hear her parts integrated into the move was torture for me. Having to wait almost 15 months was not cool. I was incredibly giddy ramping up to the screening my wife and I were to attend in early May. Not only was I excited to hear her part, but very excited to see the film, it’s premise sounded interesting and I’ve never seen a Pixar film I didn’t like…Well except for Cars 2 that is. Plus the voice cast was pretty incredible too, and I couldn’t wait to see what magic the studio was going to do this time.
Sure I could write a review and all that jazz, but I’ll save that to the experts and unbiased out there. Let me just say that I loved it the first time and adored it even more the second. It really had me on all levels, the humor was great, and the story even better and just the way that they were able to visually express emotions and feelings really got to me. Bravo again. Ok I’ll stop gushing.
