Bing Bong Fades Away in 'Inside Out' (2015)
Bing Bong was a character purposefully obscured from the marketing leading up to “Inside Out.” Sure, Pixar probably wanted to maintain a level of secrecy about a character that was difficult to explain, especially outside of the “it’s about your emotions!” logline. But we think it was to make his eventual “death” have an even larger emotional punch. When Bing Bong, Riley’s long-forgotten imaginary friend, finally gives up on having a place in her life, instead choosing to help Joy (Amy Poehler) on her journey, it gets us every time. “Take her to the moon for me,” he says, as he fades away. We will.
