‘Inside Out’ Deleted Scene Shows Bing Bong as a “Radical, Non-Conformist”

Inside Out is easily one of the best films of the year so far, and one of Pixar’s most critically-acclaimed as well. The movie from director Pete Docter was insightful, thoughtful, emotional (no pun intended), and arguably one of the best animated movies of all time in my opinion. One of the most emotional aspects of the film, and the character who made ever moviegoer shed a tear this summer was Riley’s forgotten imaginary friend, Bing Bong (Richard Kind), who Joy (Amy Poehler) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) come across in their journey back to Riley’s control center.

As fans know, Bing Bong’s story in the film is one of the most sympathetic plot lines for a character in cinema this year, so it’s easy to figure out why audience members connected to his character so strongly. When we first meet him in the movie too, he’s fighting to maintain relevant in Riley’s mind, doing whatever means necessary to achieve his somewhat selfish goals.

However, in a newly revealed deleted scene from the movie, Bing Bong showed even more of his rebellious streak as he fights construction workers who are trying to help Riley move out of her childhood. Check out the clip below (via Collider):

Like most of the movie, it brilliantly combines comedy and emotion in a way few other movies have over the past few years, and something Pixar has somehow fine-tuned into a special skill for nearly all of their films. Inside Out really sunk its claws into me everyone, and I don’t think I’m alone in saying I can’t wait to check it out again as soon as I can. I honestly believe its one of the greatest artistic achievements in cinema this year.

Inside Out is set to be released on blu ray/DVD on November 3rd.
