Disney/Pixar's Soul Debuts New Sneak Peek Clip - Watch Now!

Disney/Pixar's Soul Debuts New Sneak Peek Clip - Watch Now!

The newest Disney Pixar film, Soul, has debuted a brand new clip!

The new sneak peek debuted as part of the Essence Festival of Culture during a “Finding ‘Soul’” virtual panel.

The clip also features the song “Parting Ways” written, produced and performed by Cody ChesnuTT.

VIDEO: Watch the trailer for Soul!

Soul follows Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – 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 (voice of Tina Fey), 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.

Disney Pixar’s Soul is set to hit theaters on November 20th!

Disney Parks Announces Splash Mountain is Officially Getting a 'Princess & The Frog' Overhaul - First Look!

Disney Parks Announces Splash Mountain is Officially Getting a 'Princess & The Frog' Overhaul - First Look!

Disney Parks just made a huge announcement regarding Splash Mountain!

The classic ride will officially be getting turned into a Princess and the Frog themed attraction at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.

“Today we are thrilled to share a first glimpse of a project Imagineers have been working on since last year. Splash Mountain – at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida – will soon be completely reimagined,” Disney Parks said on their blog. “The theme is inspired by an all-time favorite animated Disney film, “The Princess and the Frog.” We pick up this story after the final kiss, and join Princess Tiana and Louis on a musical adventure – featuring some of the powerful music from the film – as they prepare for their first-ever Mardi Gras performance.”

“Tiana is a modern, courageous, and empowered woman, who pursues her dreams and never loses sight of what’s really important. It’s a great story with a strong lead character, set against the backdrop of New Orleans and the Louisiana bayou. In 1966, Walt himself opened New Orleans Square when it became the first new ‘land’ added to Disneyland park, so it feels natural to link the story and the incredible music of The Princess and the Frog to our parks,” they added.

Voice of Tiana, Anika Noni Rose, shared her reaction to the exciting news.

“It is really exciting to know that Princess Tiana’s presence in both Disneyland and Magic Kingdom will finally be fully realized! As passionate as I am about what we created, I know the fans are going to be over the moon. The Imagineers are giving us ‘The Princess and the Frog’ Mardi Gras celebration we’ve been waiting for, and I’m here for it!” she said.

Earlier this month, many fans called for the ride to be overhauled to fit the theme of the animated film amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

Disney also just announced that Disneyland’s planned phased reopening may be pushed back from it’s original July 17th date.

Disney Pledges $5 Million to Social Justice Organizations

The Walt Disney Company is supporting the Black Lives Matter movement!

The house of Mouse just announced a $5 million pledge to organizations, including the NAACP.

“The Walt Disney Company has pledged $5 million to support nonprofit organizations that advance social justice, beginning with a $2 million donation to the NAACP to further their longstanding work promoting social justice by eliminating disparities and racial discrimination through their advocacy and education programs,” reads a company newsletter.

“The killing of George Floyd has forced our nation to once again confront the long history of injustice that black people in America have suffered, and it is critical that we stand together, speak out and do everything in our power to ensure that acts of racism and violence are never tolerated,” CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement. “This $5 million pledge will continue to support the efforts of nonprofit organizations such as the NAACP that have worked tirelessly to ensure equality and justice.”

The donations news comes just a couple of days after Disney executives shared their letter of strengthening their commitment to inclusion and diversity, which was sent out to employees.

Disney Executives Release Letter To Employees Pledging to Strengthen Commitment to Diversity

The Walt Disney Company is sharing their message that was recently sent out to employees.

Executive Chairman Bob Iger shared a link to the entire letter on Twitter, from himself, CEO Bob Chapek and Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Latondra Newton shared the letter titled, “Resolve in a Time of Unrest: A Message to Fellow Employees.”

“Below is a link to a statement we sent to our fellow @Disney employees. It’s from Bob Chapek, our CEO, Latondra Newton, our Chief Diversity Officer, and me. Thank you,” he wrote with the link. See the letter below!

“The recent killing of George Floyd as well as other instances of lethal attacks and harassment of unarmed black citizens in our nation continue to drive outrage and calls for action by people of all cultural backgrounds, including many of our employees. Feelings of grief and anger cause us to confront the inscrutable idea that the lives of some are deemed less valuable – and less worthy of dignity, care and protection – than the lives of others,” the letter reads.

“While these devastating incidents are not new, there’s something unique about what’s happening in this moment. The pandemic coupled with these recent injustices have pushed the issues of racial disparity into the open,” they continued. “We, too, are struggling to make sense of the recent tragedies that leave us feeling overcome with sorrow. While we don’t have all the answers, we resolve to use our compassion, our creative ideas and our collective sense of humanity to ensure we are fostering a culture that acknowledges our people’s feelings and their pain. We also realize that now more than ever is the time for us all to further strengthen our commitment to diversity and inclusion everywhere.”

“We intend to focus our efforts and resources to compassionately and constructively talk about these matters openly and honestly as we seek solutions. We intend to keep the conversation going, not just today, but for as long as it takes to bring about real change.”

Disney owned social media accounts also shared a message in support and solidarity. Check it out below.
