“The Doctor’s most ambitious effort to date.” – Matt Singer, ScreenCrush
“” Soul “pushes Pixar further than ever into uncharted territory.” – Brandon Katz, observer
“At the end of the day, ‘Soul’ is a worthwhile Pixar experience.” – Dan Kois, slate

The film will be the studio’s first to release direct to streaming Disney + on December 25. The plot explores the spiritual world in an exciting way and through music.
In the plot, Joe Garner is a high school music teacher who dreamed of becoming a jazz musician and ultimately got the chance to impress other musicians during an open rehearsal at the Half Note Club. However, an accident causes your soul to separate from your body and transport to “You Seminar”, a center in which souls develop and acquire passions before being transported to a newborn baby. Joe has to work with trained souls, like 22, a soul with a dark outlook on life after being imprisoned for years at You Seminar, in order to return to Earth.
Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey lead the main cast, bringing Professor Joe Gardner and the soul known as 22 to life, respectively. Questlove, Daveed Diggs and Phylicia Rashad also lend their voices for the feature film.
Additionally, the film will be primarily music driven, bringing in names such as Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Baptiste for an original soundtrack with strong ties to jazz.
Pete Docter and Ken Powers are the directors.
