“We’ve met with her for sure,” Feige confirms. “We’ve met with a number of people for a number of movies. She has been one of them… We need to find the best director for any given movie, and that’s really where we always start. If diversity is part of that, it’s great. It’s important. You will start to see things across the industry as a whole change as more filmmakers come up through the ranks and become part of making movies like this.”

The second season starts out with a bang as Spock is felled by an illness that can only be cured by a substance stolen by pirates. The episode is fast-paced and showcases Kirk's diplomatic skills instead of his quick draw on the phasers. It's worth watching only for the animation. While it's still limited they obviously got more bold and increased the movements. The real star is the incredible paintings they did for the episode. It's full of colors and vibrant. A great episode.

"Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley's emotions -- led by Joy (Amy Poehler) -- try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley's mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust."
This is the best Pixar movie since Toy Story and is an incredibly complex story. One one level it's just a cute kid's movie about Joy and Sadness running around and having a funny adventure in the memories of a child. On the other hand it's a complex and tightly written story about highly developed characters dealing with the real world. On a final level it's a wonderful exploration of psychology and how we deal with emotions. Whichever way you look at it, it's marvelous. Amy Poehler does an amazing job as the perpetually happy, but not annoying. Phyllis Smith as Sadness is vulnerable and caring while living with the realization that no one wants her. Lewis Black is one of my favorite comics and is perfect as Anger.
