It’s that time again for another Shakespeare at the Movies segment! With such a huge variety of movies released during the summer season, I decided to focus on one that I am personally very excited to see. Inside Out is the latest offering from Pixar, and is being released today. Here are some Shakespeare (and Shakespeare-inspired) projects that the cast has worked on over the years!
