Amy Poehler to appear at Vivid Sydney 2024


Amy Poehler is heading Down Under, confirmed as part of the Vivid Sydney line-up.

The actress and comedian will appear at a special Vivid Ideas event at the Sydney Opera House on Monday 27 May.

The event will be an ‘In Conversation’ hosted by Zan Rowe, and it will offer a first look at Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2.

“I’m really looking forward to taking part in Vivid Sydney this year, a place that welcomes Joy in every way,” said Poehler.

“I can’t wait to share a little of Inside Out 2: a movie that lets Joy and Sadness, Anxiety and Envy all try to work together in hilarious and touching ways.”

Guests will be treated with an exclusive 30-minute peek at select scenes from the film, which is a sequel to the Academy Award-winning and critically acclaimed Inside Out (2015). Poehler voices the role of Joy in the movie.

JOY AND ANXIETY — Disney and Pixar’s “Inside Out 2” returns to the mind of freshly minted teenager Riley just as a new Emotion shows up unexpectedly. Much to Joy’s surprise, Anxiety isn’t the type who will take a back seat either.
