Debuting on the big screen in 2015, the Inside Out franchise puts an 11-year-old's emotions under the microscope; the personifications of Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust, as her family relocates from Minnesota to San Francisco.

The original movie banked over $858 million at the box office and its sequel is just weeks away from coming out.

Anxiety, Envy, Ennui and Embarrassment are some of the emotional additions to Riley's mind - voiced by Stranger Things star Maya Hawke, The Bear's Ayo Edebiri, Blue is the Warmest Colour's Adèle Exarchopoulos and Black Bird actor Paul Walter Hauser.

Rather unexpectedly, Inside Out 2 will also feature the vocals of Made in Chelsea favourite Sam Thompson, who won last year's series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!

"Having watched Pixar films since I was a kid, it's a dream come true to join the voice cast of Inside Out 2," he said in a statement.

"The film nods to the rollercoaster of emotions growing up and what a wild ride your teenage years can be. I for one can't wait to see my family's reaction to hearing my voice on the big screen."

He's playing a new character aptly named Security Man Sam.

Inside Out 2 comes to cinemas on Friday, June 14.
