Pixar changed multiple scenes in 'Inside Out' to cater to International Audiences
What you see depends on the country you live in. If you walk into a movie theater somewhere else in the world, Pixar's 'Inside Out' may look a little different from the American version you saw back at home. From the food to the sports to the cultural mannerisms, some things are slightly different. Pixar created 28 graphics for 45 uniquely different shots to be inserted for local audiences. So far Pixar has made over $553 million to date spanning multiple countries across the world. Director Pete Docter said they wanted the film to remain complex and emotional while making sense with the foreign audience's culture. Sometimes Pixar films aren't strictly perfect domestically so they make some tweaks to create the best product. This isn't the first company to change it's movie for a foreign audience. Marvel with "Iron Man 3" added scenes for Chinese audiences to incorporate Gu Li Duo, a popular Chinese milk drink, and a scene where Iron Man is saved by a famous Chinese character. In Adam Sandler's "Pixels", a scene was taken out so that Chinese audiences would not see the Great Wall of China destroyed. As you can see, your country has a huge influence. Doctor said for 'Inside Out', “We learned that some of our content wouldn’t make sense in other countries. For example, in Japan, broccoli is not considered gross. Kids love it. So we asked them, ‘What’s gross to you?’ They said green bell peppers, so we remodeled and reanimated three separate scenes replacing our broccoli with green peppers.” In this scene, Riley's dad is having a hard time getting her to eat broccoli. She squirms and turns away in disgust as he continuously attempts to have her eat it. In the United States, it is a normal thing for a child to dislike broccoli. But in Japan, broccoli is substituted by bell peppers since Japanese children think those are gross instead. That slight cultural difference changed an entire scene in the film to be more relatable and to evoke EMOTION. Though Hockey is traditionally a Canadian pastime, Hockey is still largely popular in the northern parts of the United States such as US state, Minnesota. Hockey is still just as American for many people however most of the world isn't exposed to hockey frequently which is why Pixar changed it to soccer. Soccer is the world's most popular sport. Docter also mentioned,“We offered a version with soccer instead of hockey since soccer is huge in so many parts of the world. But some countries that are into soccer actually decided to stick with hockey since the characters in the movie are from Minnesota and it makes sense that they’d be hockey fans.” Did you know that even how we read words is different in various parts of the world? Well Pixar took note of that being noted by Docter, "Bing Bong reads a sign in the film to Joy and Sadness. He points at the letters, D-A-N-G-E-R, saying ‘it’s a shortcut.’ Not only did we translate the sign, but we even went so far as to reanimate Bing Bong so that he points to the letters from right to left, instead of left to right to accommodate certain languages.” Do you think it's necessary to change a movie for a foreign audience?

Meenakshi Amman Temple
Meenakshi Amman Temple, also known as Minakshi-Sundareshwara Temple, is one of the oldest and most important temples in India. Located in the city of Madurai, the temple has great mythological and historical significance. It is believed that Lord Shiva assumed the form of Sundareswarar (the handsome one) and married Parvati (Meenakshi) at the site where the temple is currently located. Renowned for its amazing architecture, the Meenakshi temple was nominated as one of the wonders of the world, but failed to make the list of the "Seven Wonders of the World". However, the temple is definitely one of the "Wonders of India". It is also one of south India's top attractions with thousands of devotees crowding it every day. During the "Tirukalyanam Festival", which takes place over a period of 10 days, the temple attracts more than one million devotees. Even though many people visit it every day, the temple is well maintained and was named the "Best Iconic Place of Swachh" (the cleanest iconic place) in India. According to a legend, Meenakshi emerged from a "Yajna" (sacred fire) when she was a three-year-old girl. The "Yajna" was performed by a king named Malayadwaja Pandya along with his wife Kanchanamalai. Since the royal couple had no children, the King offered his prayers to Lord Shiva, asking him to grant them a son. But to her dismay, a three-breasted girl emerged from the sacred fire. When Malayadwaja and his wife expressed concern about the girl's abnormal appearance, a divine voice ordered them not to worry about the girl's physical appearance. They were also informed that the girl's third breast will disappear as soon as she meets her future husband. The relieved king appointed her Meenakshi and, in due course, crowned her as his successor. Meenakshi ruled the ancient city of Madurai and also went on to capture the neighboring kingdoms. Legend has it that he even captured Indralok, the abode of Lord Indra, and was also on his way to capture Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiva. When Shiva appeared before her, Meenakshi's third breast disappeared and she knew she had met her half-orange. Shiva and Meenakshi returned to Madurai where their wedding took place. It is said that the wedding was attended by all the gods and goddesses. Since Parvati herself had assumed the form of Meenakshi, Lord Vishnu, Parvati's brother, handed it over to Lord Shiva. Even today, the wedding ceremony is celebrated every year as "Chithirai Thiruvizha", which is also known as "Tirukalyanam" (the big wedding). The history of the Meenakshi temple dates back to the first century AD.C. and scholars claim that it is as old as the city itself. Kulashekarar Pandyan, a king who ruled the Pandyan dynasty, is said to have built the temple according to instructions given in his dream by Lord Shiva. Some religious texts belonging to the first to the fourth century AD.C speak of the temple and describe it as the central structure of the city. Texts dating from the early sixth century describe the temple as a place where scholars met to discuss important issues. However, the temple as it stands today was rebuilt throughout the sixteenth century, as it was destroyed by Muslim invaders. During the fourteenth century E.C., Malik Kafur, a commander of the Delhi Sultanate, led his army to most of southern India and looted many temples, including the famous Meenakshi Temple. Valuables such as gold, silver and precious gems were brought to Delhi. Since temples in those days had an abundance of valuables, most of the temples were destroyed and left in ruins. When the Vijayanagar Empire seized Madurai after defeating the Muslim Sultanate, the temple was rebuilt and reopened. The temple was further expanded in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries by Vishwanatha Nayakar, a king of the Nayaka dynasty. According to the researchers, while rebuilding the temple, the rulers of the Nayaka dynasty followed the architectural style of 'Silpa Shastras'. 'Silpa Shastras' is a set of architectural laws found in ancient texts. The temple was once again expanded by Thirumalai Nayak, who ruled Madurai from 1623 to 1655. During his reign, many "Mandapams" (aisles with pillars) were built. Later, the temple was expanded by many later rulers of Nayaka before the arrival of the British East India Company. The temple was again degraded and parts of it were destroyed during British rule. In 1959, Tamil Hindus began restoration work by collecting donations and collaborating with historians and engineers. The temple was completely restored in 1995.
