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

“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.”

Amy will follow in the footsteps of Emmy Award winner Jennifer Coolidge who headlined Vivid Sydney 2023, alongside the White Lotus writer and director Mike White.

Why Amy Poehler was chosen for Vivid Sydney 2024

Aside from her almost countless awards and insane IMDB resume, Amy has a new movie coming out called Inside Out 2.

She plays the starring role of Joy in the cartoon flick, which is scheduled for release on June 14, 2024.

“Amy Poehler is comedy royalty and the perfect person to join us as part of Vivid Ideas for this year’s Vivid Sydney,” festival director, Gill Minervini, said.

“We’re so proud to add her to the growing list of guests set to captivate visitors throughout 23 nights of the festival. Amy’s new film Inside Out 2 ties in perfectly with the theme of this year’s festival, Humanity, with an accessible take on how the human mind makes decisions and processes emotions.

“Allowing audiences to have an insight to how one of the world’s great writers and performers operates is sure to be a great thrill. I encourage everyone to get their tickets as soon as they can for this not-to-be-missed event.”
