Inside out director Pete Docter talks about his Christian values and being nominated for the Golden Globes for the movie
Inside out is without doubt the best animated movie of the year. Pete Docter, the director of the wonderful movie, has credited his vision and uniqueness of approach toward his Christian values and has said that the concept was easy but the movie was hard to make.
Pete is a devout Christian, but he has never incorporated Christian teachings and messages into his movies. He also has said that he will never make a move which explicitly has a religious message to it. He mentioned that he considers himself to be an extremely lucky person to be able to share his thoughts that have been influenced by Christianity with the world at large.
Inside Out, Pete’s latest animated movie has already been nominated for the Golden Globe award in the best animated film category. Many analysts have already predicted that the award will surely be going to Pete as there is no other film this year that even comes close to Inside Out.
Pete, who is already a onetime Oscar winner, is also the most favored director to win this year’s award in the best animated film category. Pete’s films are widely accepted and associated with audiences all over the world.
Pete has already received millions of mails on how his films have helped parents connect them with their children. He has said this is the very reason that motivates him to make such beautiful movies. In a recent interview, he also said that he does it especially for his children, whom he loves above all else. He wants them to have an amazing anime experience, something their generation lacks.
Pete has time and again described himself as a geeky kid from Minnesota who just loves to draw cartoons.
His movies so far have been outstanding performers in box offices. His last three movies went on to make $ 2.11 billion dollars, making him the most successful director in animated movie history ever.
Some of his most notable movies are” Inside Out” ,”Up” ,” Monster’s Inc”, “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2”. He is currently planning to work on another animated movie. He has been spending time brain storming for possible ideas at his home in Minnesota.
Pete has also recently dispelled rumors circulating that his next movie was going to be Inside Out 2. Sources say he stated Inside Out is not going to be having a sequel. And if it did, it would definitely lose its original beauty.
Pete’s children, like most children, love his works. He has even cast his daughter Elie in the movie UP, where she gives voice over for the character “Young Ellie”.
Pete’s net worth is estimated to be $15 million dollars.
