More To It: A New 'Inside Out' Character Revealed


Not too long ago, Inside Out fruit snacks were being sold at stores. One of the snacks happened to be designed after a character named Bing Bong... Who is that?

Well, the mystery has been solved. Bing Bong is Riley's imaginary friend, and the plush toy image has been revealed...


Probably the strangest character design I've seen in a Pixar film, and that's why I absolutely love it.

I wonder what role the imaginary friend will have in the film. Will it feel bad because Riley grew out of him/her? Where is it located in her brain? Is there like a Forgotten Alley of sorts, or a land of the forgotten where it lives? Who knows! I like the idea of an imaginary friend existing as a creature in the brain, it's a bit reminiscent of Cartoon Network's now decade-old Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, where imaginary friends appear in real life after kids imagine them.

Also, this is yesterday's news, but this is what the Train of Thought looks like. The Pixar Post got these images, they were on display at the Walt Disney Family Museum...



The train's locomotive is a cool amalgamation of different kinds of engines, from cable cars to classic steam engines. I particularly love the weird shape of it, too. Just an all-around creative-looking train. I wonder why it only has two cars, though. Maybe it has more in the actual film...

The studio also looks cool...

The more they reveal about this film, the more exciting it looks. I'm sure we'll get a really good trailer showcasing parts of the brain world sometime this coming spring. Anyways, awesome concept art for what is sure to be an awesome film. What do you think?
