Disney Releases New Trailer For Upcoming Pixar Film 'Soul' - Watch Now!

A new trailer for Disney/Pixar’s upcoming movie Soul has been unveiled!

The new movie stars Jamie Foxx in the lead role of Joe Gardner, a middle-school band teacher with a serious passion for jazz music.

In Soul, Joe is on the brink of getting his big break playing for a jazz quartet. But he finds himself on an unexpected detour from the streets of New York City to The Great Before, tasked with helping new soul 22 (Tina Fey) find her spark to earn her way to Earth.

Jamie recently opened up about how he related to his character.

“Like Joe, I hear music in everything,” he said. “When you’re a jazz artist, man, you talk a little different: ‘Hey, cat!’ I got a chance to go to a few jazz fests and meet Herbie Hancock, Chick Correa—hang out with those guys. They have a way of talking, a way of dressing—everything funnels toward their music, toward the jazz.”

Be sure to tune in to Soul when it premieres on it’s new release date, Christmas Day (December 25), on Disney+!

The latest Disney and Pixar film Soul is heading to Disney+!

It was just announced that the movie will premiere on the streaming service on Christmas Day (December 25).

“We are thrilled to share Pixar’s spectacular and moving Soul with audiences direct to Disney+ in December,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement. “A new original Pixar film is always a special occasion, and this truly heartwarming and humorous story about human connection and finding one’s place in the world will be a treat for families to enjoy together this holiday season.”

VIDEO: Watch the trailer for Soul right here!

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.

Soul is the latest Disney film to move to Disney+, following the release of Mulan in September. For the international markets where Disney+ is not yet available, the movie will premiere in theaters, with a date yet to be announced.

Disney/Pixar Announces New Movie 'Luca', Shares First Look!

Disney/Pixar Announces New Movie 'Luca', Shares First Look!

We have the first look image from the upcoming Disney/Pixar film Luca!

The animated movie is directed by Academy Award-nominated Enrico Casarosa, and is being produced by Andrea Warren, who also produced Lava and Cars 3.

Here’s a synopsis: Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

“This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in Luca,” Enrico said in a statement. “So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”

Luca is set to hit theaters on June 18, 2021 in the US.
