Inside Out may be animated, but the film captures San Francisco well. While working on the film, Pixar interns brought the studio over 4,000 digital photos of the city. As a result, many of the film's scenes set in San Francisco are instantly recognizable.

It takes a while for Riley to adjust to her new surroundings. Perhaps a trip to the library could have sped up the process. The San Francisco History Center has a couple of city guidebooks just for kids:
- The Lobster Kid's Guide to Exploring San Francisco (2001) by David Cole
- Kidding Around San Francisco: A Young Person's Guide to the City (1989) by Rosemary Zibart
Reading those guidebooks would definitely count if Riley decided to join the San Francisco Public Library's summer reading program, "Summer Stride". She could check out all the events happening on the library's second floor, including the opening of the new teen center, The Mix.
For more kids films set in San Francisco, check out these titles:
- The Love Bug (1968) and Herbie Rides Again (1974)
- Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey (1993) and Homeward Bound 2: Lost in San Francisco (1996)
- Monsters vs. Aliens (2009)
- Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (2010)
Coming Soon: Terminator: Genysis

So cute! Great film post. Gotta check out the library!ReplyDelete
AMAZING. Probably one of the smartest Disney movies I've seen. The characters are fun, the story will leave you crying, and the funny parts are smart. I wish that it came earlier because it's not just that everything would work out. Not everyone is going to end up a princess in a castle or a hero with a medal.ReplyDelete

The challenge here involves maintaining a believable humanity while also making an entertaining case that humanity is impossible without the proper emotional configuration. And in meeting that challenge, the movie keeps surprising and delighting you.ReplyDelete
