In Soul, life begins before a person arrives on Earth. The latest trailer for the film offers a colorful take on “The Great Before,” a place where souls acquire their personalities before enjoying their time on Earth.
Soul premieres December 25 on Disney Plus. The Pixar-directed film stars Jamie Foxx as the voice of Joe, a New York jazz teacher, and Tina Fey as the voice of 22, a soul who guides him. Pete Docter, known for his work on Upside down and To the top, directs.
As the pandemic continues to keep spaces like theaters unsafe to visit or closed down entirely, Disney has used its streaming platform to make its theatrical debut exclusively. The company previously announced that Soul would skip theaters and head straight to Disney Plus, joining titles like Mulan and Artemis Foul. Disney Plus subscribers will not have to pay extra for Soul, the way the service charged $ 30 for Mulan when he made his debut.
