Disney/Pixar just released the new trailer for their upcoming animated feature, Soul. Given the collaborators’ track record, it’s no surprise that the film looks stunning and feels primed to tug at your heartstrings.
I can not wait to explore the film’s “soulful” vision of New York. And based on the trailer, you can guarantee Soul’s soundtrack will feature a few bangers. On top of that, we get to go on the adventure with a top-notch cast of actors. Soul features the talented voices of Tina Fey, Jamie Foxx, Daveed Diggs, Ahmir-Khalib Thompson, and the goddess, Phylicia Rashad. The film’s June 18th release date can’t arrive soon enough.
Directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Pete Docter, co-directed by Kemp Powers and produced by Academy Award®-nominee Dana Murray, Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” opens in theaters on June 19, 2020. According to Docter, the idea for the story is 23 years in the making. “It started with my son—he’s 23 now—but the instant he was born, he already had a personality,” says Docter. “Where did that come from? I thought your personality developed through your interaction with the world. And yet, it was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are.”
A musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back with the help of an infant soul learning about herself.
