Disney released the official trailer of its upcoming Pixar animated film, Soul, which stars the voices of Jaime Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, and Daveed Diggs.
As you can tell from the trailer, it definitely has a unique vibe, even with the quirky colorful familiarity that we’ve seen in Disney Pixar’s Inside Out. Both films were directed by Pete Doctor.
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.
Soul is scheduled to release in theaters June 19th.
