‘Soul’ is Pixar’s animated comedy-drama film, directed by Pete Docter and Kemp Powers. It features Docter, Powers, and Mike Jones, as the lead writers. The movie debuted on October 11, 2020, at the BFI London Film Festival. Although it was meant to have a theatrical release, the plan was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The flick was then rescheduled to be given a digital release on Disney+. Do you wish to know more about the film’s release schedule, cast, and plot? Well, we have you covered!

Soul Plot: What is it About?
“What is it that makes you…YOU? This December, Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new feature film “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town” — this is the official intro of ‘Soul’ as outlined by Disney. However, when Joe commits a small mistake, he lands in The Great Before, a fantastical place, which is inhabited by different souls before they enter Earth. Joe is hell-bent on returning to his original life and hence, teams up with 22, who does not understand the human experience. As Joe attempts to show 22 the real meaning of living, he begins to discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
