Recently, Pixar declared that Soul would not be released in theaters; instead, it will premiere on Disney+. The soul is a computer-animated comedy movie produced by Pixar Animation and Walt Disney. Kemp Powers and Pete Docter direct the film. Powers, Doctor, and Mike Jones are writing the screenplay of the film. The audience can listen to the characters in the voice of Tina Fey, Jamie Foxx, Phylicia Rashad, Questlove, Daveed Diggs, and Angela Bassett.
The movie premiered on 11 October 2020, at the BFI London Festival. Initially, the team was planning for the film’s theatrical release, but later they changed it to a video-on-demand release on Disney+ during Christmas on 25 December 2020.
The new trailer provides a fair depiction of the storyline as Joe, who is a music teacher, dreams of pursuing his career as a jazz musician.

The movie’s title was revealed in June 2018 as ‘Soul.’ Murray said that the film would take its audiences into a whole another world where no one has ever been for a long time. Whereas, the co-director and co-write Kemp Powers revealed that the project is very different from Docter’s previous film. He also added that this movie would answer a lot of questions but in a fun way.
Pixar Animation and Disney have revealed the film’s voice cast includes June Squibb, Graham Norton, Alice Braga, Richard Ayoade, and Rachel House. And fans are excited with the involvement of such incredible performers.
Pete Docter is best known for his projects like Inside Out, Monsters, Inc., and Up. He also won two Oscars for Best Animated Feature Film. And once again, Docter is all set to bring and create a whole new imaginary world through the film’s artists.
