Pixar has given us such masterpieces as ‘Up’ and ‘Coco’ that not only kept us glued to the screen but also invoked some truly deep emotions within our hearts. That’s why it’s no surprise that once the company announced their new project, people were pretty enthusiastic about it. And behold, the first trailer for ‘Soul’ just dropped and it already has over 3 million views on YouTube, as well as 117k likes. If that doesn’t showcase the audience’s interest in this new adventure, then only people’s reactions to it can.
Pixar has dropped a teaser for their next movie and it is about death and reincarnation
The computer-animated fantasy adventure film comedy film ‘Soul’ follows the life of Joe Gardner, a middle school music teacher, who has long dreamed of performing jazz music onstage. As he finally scores an opportunity to do so after impressing other jazz musicians during an opening act at the Half Note Club, his dream completely crumbles when Joe suffers an accident that separates his soul from his body.
Gardner’s soul is then transported to “You Seminar” a center in which souls develop and gain passions before being transported to a newborn child. There, Joe has to work with other souls to return to Earth. There he meets 22 (who is played by Tina Fey), a soul with a dim view on life after being trapped for years at the You Seminar.
The movie is set to be released in June 19, 2020 and stars Jamie Foxx in the main role. It is directed by Pete Docter and produced by Dana Murray, with the screenplay from Mike Jones, Kemp Powers and Pete himself. Foxx’s co-stars include Tina Fey, Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs. The score is written by Nine Inch Nail’s duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, while Jon Batiste will be writing jazz songs for the film.
