SOUL is the work of visionary director Pete Docter, Oscar® winner and producer of Inside Out and Up, and co-director and writer Kemp Powers, playwright and screenwriter of One Night in Miami. SOUL features in its original version with the fantastic voices of the actors Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett and Daveed Diggs and also with the original jazz music of the prestigious musician Jon Batiste. In addition, the public will be able to enjoy a spectacular soundtrack composed by Oscar® winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network).
"The world can be a tiring and frustrating place, but it also surprises us with unexpected moments of joy and optimism even in the most banal situations," said Docter, Director of SOUL and CEO of Pixar Animation Studios. "'Soul' explores what is really important in our lives, a question we all ask ourselves these days. I hope it brings some humor and fun to people at a time when they need it so much. "
“In the last six months, the market conditions created by the pandemic we suffered, despite being complicated in many aspects, also represent an opportunity to innovate in content distribution strategies. With more than 60 million subscribers during its first year of launch, the Disney + platform is the perfect option for families and fans to enjoy a Pixar movie at home like never before. "
SOUL's premiere in theaters was scheduled for November 20, 2020 and earlier this year it was chosen to be part of the official selection of the Cannes Film Festival and also from other festivals, such as the London Film Festival from the British Film Institute this Sunday.
Synopsis: What is it that makes you … YOU? Pixar Animation Studios' Soul introduces us to Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx), a high school music teacher who has a unique opportunity: to play at the best jazz club in town. However, a small misstep will take you from the streets of New York to the Great Origin, a place of fantasy where new souls receive their personalities, quirks and interests before going to Earth. Joe is determined to get his life back and joins forces with a precocious soul, 22 (voiced by Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 how wonderful life is, he may discover the answers to some of life's biggest questions.
Soul is directed by Oscar® winner Pete Docter (Inside Out, Up), co-directed by Kemp Powers (One Night in Miami) and produced by Oscar nominee Dana Murray, p.g.a. (short by Pixar Lou).
