EMERYVILLE: A trailer for “Soul,” the forthcoming film from Pixar Animation Studios, has landed on YouTube.
Jamie Foxx voices the main character Joe, who is seeking to reunite his soul with his body.
Hot on the heels of “Onward” by Dan Scanlon, which was released a week ago, “Soul” will soon be coming to film theatres.
The feature tells the tale of a New York school teacher, voiced by Jamie Foxx, who dreams of becoming a professional jazz musician.
However, following an accident that leaves him between life and death, his soul is separated from his body and transported to The Great Before, a fantastic place where souls develop before coming to Earth in the bodies of newborns.
There Joe meets 22 (Tina Fey), whom he asks for help to return to his previous life.
“Soul” was directed by Pete Docter (“Up,” “Inside Out”) and co-written by Mike Jones and Kemp Powers.
“Soul” will be released in the United States on June 19, 2020.
