At a Walt Disney sponsored watch party, Pixar released an official concept art series of “Soul,” its most recent and acclaimed animation.
The stills showcase several key scenes from the feature film, including the cathartic sequence in which Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) comes back to life and realizes he isn’t enjoying it the way he should.

“Soul” is now available on the Disney + streaming platform.
In the plot, Joe Gardner is a high school music teacher who dreamed of becoming a jazz musician and eventually got the chance to impress other musicians during an open rehearsal at the Half Note Club. However, an accident causes your soul to be separated from your body and transported to “You Seminary,” a center where souls develop and acquire passions before being transported to a newborn baby. Joe has to work with training 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, Angela Bassett and Phylicia Rashad also lend their voices to the feature film.
Additionally, the film will be primarily music driven, bringing names like Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon Baptiste to an original soundtrack with strong ties to jazz.
Pete Docter and Ken Powers are the directors.
