What to Expect From Disney-Pixar’s Soul
Soul is the latest film that Disney has moved from cinemas direct to Disney+, following Artemis Fowl, Hamilton, and Mulan. But good news, unlike Mulan which was released on Disney+ for a premium fee, the new movie Soul will be available to Disney+ subscribers for no extra cost.
A new original Pixar film is always a special occasion, and they think that “this heartwarming and humorous story about human connection and finding one’s place in the world will be a treat for families to enjoy together this holiday season.”

What is Soul About?
Soul tells the story of Joe Gardner, a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn’t quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz and he’s good at playing jazz. One small misstep takes him away from New York to The Great Before, a magical realm where new souls get their personalities, interests and quirks before they go to Earth.
Determined to return to his life before, Joe teams up with a soul “22” who has never understood the appeal of human life. Joe desperately tries to show “22” what is great about living. He ends up discovering what it means to have soul.
The new movies features the voices of Tina Fey, Jamie Foxx, Angela Bassett, Phylicia Rashad, amongst others.
Musician Jon Batiste wrote the original jazz music for the film, while Oscar®-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from Nine Inch Nails, composed the original score.
