Pixar has given us stories of lovable monsters, foodie rats, heroic robots, and loyal toys. Next, they will go to infinity and beyond, exploring the afterlife in Soul.
For Pixar’s original animated adventure, directors Pete Docter (Inside Out) and Kemp Powers (Star Trek: Discovery) have wrangled an incredible cast that includes Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Quest Love, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs, and John Ratzenberger. From the new trailer below, it also sounds like Boxtrolls’ Richard Ayoade and Hunt For The Wilderpeople’s Rachel House got in on the fun too.
Take a look and a listen!
Here’s the official plot synopsis for Soul:
Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before - a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
Pixar’s Soul comes to theaters on June 19.
