Watch The Disney Pixar Soul Trailer

Disney Pixar has released the first trailer for Soul, the upcoming animated feature starring Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (Ray) and Golden Globe winner Tina Fey (30 Rock).

The official tagline for Soul reads: “Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams, and your interests come from? What is it that makes you… YOU?” The movie will take you on a journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms to discover the answers to life’s most important questions.

Soul imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Foxx will play a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at the legendary New York jazz club The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm — with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig.

The movie also stars Daveed Diggs, Questlove, and Phylicia Rashad.

The film is directed by Oscar winner Peter Docter (Up, Inside Out) and will be released on June 19, 2020.

First Look At Pixar’s Soul

D23 Expo just provided a first look at Pixar’s Soul. Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey will lead the cast of the film. Here’s a first look at their characters, Joe Gardner and 22, and a new piece of concept art. 

“Why am I here” is the question at the heart of Soul, a film which explores where souls come from. For the movie, Pixar dreamed up “You” seminars are where soul’s learn personalities and hop into people’s bodies as they graduate. The film’s lead character Joe Gardner (Foxx) is a music teacher who gets his dream music gig but takes a wrong step and his soul leaves his body, as a result he ends up at the “You” Seminar. Joe will adventure through the cosmos to find his way back.

Music in the film will be created by Jon Batiste as well as a score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Additional cast members for the film also include Questlove, Phylicia Rashad and Daveed Diggs.

The movie will be directed by Oscar winner Peter Docter (Up, Inside Out) and will be produced by Oscar nominee Dana Murray (Lou).

Soul is set to be released on June 19, 2020.
