Inside Out is a film about an 11 year old girl named Riley, but Riley isn't the main character; she's the setting. The film takes place in her mind, following her emotions, Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Anger (Lewis Black), which director Pete Docter describes as "our version of Walt Disney's Seven Dwarfs," as they help Riley adjust to life in San Francisco after her family relocates there from a small town.

These distinct color-coded characters help Riley to process new experiences and to make memories, which are constantly being recorded within brightly colored orbs that look something like those translucent bath-bubble balls (filed away nightly and then erased in long-term storage by "Forgetters" with a vaguely Minions-like vibe). The inventive opening scene extends from the moment of Riley' birth and the creation of her first memory to the introduction of its five main characters, ending with an encounter between Joy and Sadness where the former can't seem to figure out Sadness' role in the operation. Once the clip ended, Docter explained that Riley and her parents relocate from a quiet rural home to San Francisco at a particularly impressionable age, resulting in a new-school trauma that forces Joy and Sadness out of the control panel and into the far, unfamiliar reaches of her mind.

The film is said to be a revolutionary new way of looking at human emotions that asks viewers to examine and confront their own feelings. Inside Out is slated for release on June 19, 2015.

Co-creator of the series Michael Dante DiMartino took to his tumblr to announce that Book 3 is finished:

Today we finished the final sound mix of Book 3 at Levels audio. That's our awesome mixer Adrian on the board mixing the sound effects, foley, dialogue, and music for the finale episode while Bryan watches behind him (usually I'm next to Bryan, but I was taking the photo). Can't believe we've finished an entire season's worth of shows. We're so proud of everyone who worked so hard to make Book 3 the best season of Korra yet! I know you are all excited to watch — believe me, we're excited to share it with you! I wish I could say I had some news about Korra's release date, but I'm sorry to say I don't.

SEGA says:

Sonic the Hedgehog, the iconic video game character who has brought his trademark speed and attitude to four TV series and more than 70 video games, is returning to television in his first-ever CG animated series in the fall 2014. The action packed comedy series aimed at children 6-11 will debut first on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on CANAL J and GULLI in France, with a global rollout to follow. The initial order of 52 eleven-minute episodes is co-produced by SEGA of America Inc. and Genao Productions. Sonic Boom is a character-driven comedy that leaves a trail of robot wreckage in its smoldering wake. The series centers on Sonic, his best friend and sidekick, Tails, their never-ending search for adventure, and their battles with Sonic's arch-nemesis, Dr. Eggman. Rounding out the ensemble are fan favorites Knuckles and Amy Rose, plus a rogue's gallery of enemies—some familiar to Sonic fans and some brand-new. Evan Baily, Donna Friedman Meir, and Jane McGregor, Executive Producers for SEGA, packaged the series, bringing together SEGA, Cartoon Network, and Genao Productions. Sandrine Nguyen and Boris Hertzog, Executive Producers for Genao, assembled a world-class lineup of partners in France, including broadcasters GULLI and CANAL J, Lagardere Entertainment Rights and Lagardère Active TV Licensing & New Business. Baily, Meir and Nguyen developed the series, and Hertzog and McGregor structured the financing and negotiated all the deals. Baily (formerly EVP of Production and Creative Affairs for Classic Media) and Co-Executive Producer Bill Freiberger (The Simpsons, Drawn Together) are showrunners. Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team and driving creative force behind the Sonic games, is overseeing the series to ensure that it's true to the Sonic characters and universe. "Sonic is the star of the SEGA universe and the stage is now set for him to shine like never before. By teaming up with world-class partners in television animation like Cartoon Network, Genao Productions and GULLI, we're ensuring that the Sonic legacy will be introduced to a new generation of children across the globe," said Hiroyuki Miyazaki, SEGA's Chief Content Officer for Sonic. "We wanted to strengthen our TV channels' editorial content with strong brands. This is our new objective. Sonic is an enormously popular and unique character with all the qualities of an animation series' great hero—humor, bravery, loyalty, inventiveness. We are extremely proud to welcome him across our kids and family channels at Lagardère Active and will activate across these channels to raise awareness and excitement for the new series," said Caroline Cochaux, Head of Programs, Kids & Family Channels, Lagardère Active. "Genao is thrilled to collaborate with SEGA on this amazing project and embark on new adventures with the fastest hedgehog in the world. It is so exciting to work on such a world-class brand," said Sandrine Nguyen, Managing Director of Genao. Emmanuelle Bouilhaguet, Managing Director of Lagardere Entertainment Rights added "It is an amazing experience to be associated to such a powerful property with professional partners. International broadcasters are seeking for strong comedy and franchise based series and Sonic Boom is the perfect fit!" "On the New Business & Licensing Side, we are proud and excited to handle the representation of Sonic which counts among the leading characters loved by kids. Thanks to our 360° platform which includes Digital Activities, Magazines, Indoor Parks, Grass Root events, we will push Sonic and the Consumer Products to a new level," said Benoit Roque, Head of Lagardere Active TV Licensing & New Business. SEGA is actively seeking partners in support of the new series launch across a range of industries including broadcast and licensing. In terms of television and digital distribution, Lagardere Entertainment Rights holds worldwide rights excluding the U.S. and Asia (but including Japan)

Phineas and Ferb will play residents of Tattooine during the events of A New Hope, which according to the show's creators, play out

exactly the way it did [in the movie], but we find out that Phineas and Ferb are Luke's neighbors on Tatooine and become embroiled in the adventure," Marsh said. "Our story all takes place as if you had a slightly wider shot, you could see our characters. Or if you just waited around five minutes after this [Star Wars] storyline, our characters would pass through.
