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?

Why Roller Rinks Deserve A Comeback
In the 1990s, my sister and I were addicted to rollerskating. Every Friday night, our mother used to drop us off at our local roller rink so we could skate for hours - the same roller rink where we'd sign up for private skating classes and have our middle school birthday parties. That rink, Skater's World, was where we met our first boyfriends, where we played Marvel Vs. Capcom until we ran out of quarters, and where I learned not to trust anything that uses blue food coloring. I'm looking at you, recession stand slurpees. Skater's World has been closed for a decade now, and it's not the only rink that has. I petition that we make the roller rink cool again. (I mean, if earcuffs can make a comeback, so can skates!) In fact, I've assembled a list of reasons why roller rinks were awesome - you know, just in case you guys need any reminders. 1. Couples Skate was the 'Facebook Official' of the 90s. When a slow love song came on, all the singletons cleared the floor, the lights would dim, and it was time to lock hands with your BF/GF and skate around together. Romantic, right? You know what they say - the couple that skates together stays together. (This actually isn't true. I just wanted to sell my point.) 2. The snack bar/refreshment stand had the best pizza. I don't know what it is about roller rink pizza, but nothing really hit the spot like it. It was probably because your other options were rubbery hot dogs and the stalest pretzels in town, but damn, was that pizza satisfying! 3. The arcade was the hottest place to socialize. Most rinks have pretty epic arcade games. If skating got boring, you could head over to the arcade to play Terminator 2 pinball or Street Fighter. My favorite was always the Jurassic Park game because it actually moved while you played it! (Too bad 3 out of 4 times I'd try to use it, some high schoolers would be sitting in it and making out! Gross!) 4. Roller Rink DJs were minor celebrities. Being a roller rink DJ was a serious status symbol. I mean, one does not simply become the guy who keeps all the Jock Jams CDs in heavy rotation. That role is earned. The roller rink DJ is king, and that weird off-rink DJ booth is his throne. Maybe. 5. Speaking of, the music was serious quality. I don't care what anyone says. "C'Mon 'N Ride It (The Train)" by the Quad City DJs is basically America's second national anthem. (Toot, toot!) 6. EVERYTHING IN BLACKLIGHT!!! I'm not quite sure why blacklight hasn't become the standard for all lighting everywhere because it's pretty freaking awesome to walk into a room where everything is neon and glowing. Roller rinks single-handedly put blacklight on the maps, yo. 7. Doing the Macarena on skates was the ultimate agility test. There's two different types of little kids in the world - those who can do the Macarena on rollerskates and those who fall flat on their butt and hold up the party with their I-can't-hang-with-the-Macarena-on-skates tears. 8. Roller rinks were just plain fun! Let's be real. Every time you left a roller rink, you couldn't help but feel like you just had the best Saturday ever! You ate pizza, you played arcade games, you Macarena-ed - life was AWESOME!!! So who else was a diehard skater back in the day? What else do you remember about life in the rink?
