The animation studio is known for renewing its acclaimed movies with sequels, receiving a mixed response from its . This year, ‘Inside Out's' sequel promises plenty of fun, but some argue that it doesn't capture the emotional nuances of its predecessor.

The Tale of a Transforming

In ‘Inside Out 2', 13-year-old Riley transitions from middle school to high school, introducing an array of complex emotions during this essential phase of her . Although the film's premise banks on the complexity of emotions, critics say the plot and emotional range come off as somewhat basic. That doesn't mean there aren't elements to appreciate in this sequel.

Set to be released on June 14, ‘Inside Out 2' brings more laughs but less emotional depth than the first film.
