Last Tuesday I had the chance to walk the purple carpet for the world premiere and pre-party of the highly anticipated new Disney/Pixar movie, Inside Out, opening in theaters on June 19th, 2015. Although the sun beat down on Hollywood Blvd with a little extra intensity that day, it was still exciting for everyone who worked on the film and their families. Of course, it was also an amazing day for the 24 bloggers, including me, who were invited to the event as well.
It may sound silly, but every time I go to one of these one-of-a-kind events, I wonder to myself before, “Which color will the carpet be this time?” Gnomeo & Juliet was blue-white-red, Frozen’s premiere was white, Cinderella’s premiere was red, and World of Color’s was blue. Since a single picture speaks a thousand words, I thought it best to share a few from Inside Out’s purple carpet…
Disney-Pixar Inside Out World Premier in Pictures
The pre-party took place right outside the iconic El Capitan Theater.
Here is where media wait for the arrival of celebrities.
Bordering the purple carpet were lots of posters with the movie characters on them. Perfect for a photo!
Just before the entrance to the private party stood the Inside Out headquarters control panel.
Look who I saw at the entrance to the party. The talented, and, I must say, very good looking, Kyle MacLachlan, who is the voice of Riley’s dad in the film!! Be sure to check out my interview with him next week!
I love how the Disney special events team used the decorations to make guests feel like they were inside the movie.
One highlight of the event were the amazing cupcakes…
…and the irrepresibly funny, and very kind, Billy Crystal (here with Yolanda Machado, Tee Burgess, Shelby Barone, and me).
I was thrilled to have a picture taken with the talented Mexican actress, Angélica María. A true icon.
After the party, and right before the movie premeire, all the cast had their pictures taken and I was right there snapping photos:
Then we headed into the theater.
Since it was a world premiere, we couldn’t take any pictures inside, but I have always loved the way the El Capitan Theater marquee looks at night, so here is a picture just for you:
The movie was amazing and I will be telling you more about it in my review this Friday. Before I say goodbye today though, here are a few more celebrity pictures and a video of the pre-party. Enjoy!
Who is going to the theaters this weekend? I hope you all are!
Thanks to the Walt Disney Studios for the invitation, lodging, and transportation to the premeire. All comments, opinions and my love for Disney movies are my own.
