A middle-school band teacher who yearns to pursue a career as a jazz musician all of a sudden finds his dream (and life) cut short. The first trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Soul is beautiful, traumatic, and really promising, looking at who we are deep down and what it means to have “soul.”
Directed by Peter Docter and Kemp Powers, Soul stars Jamie Foxx as a teacher named Joe Gardner whose true passion is jazz music, but his career continues failing to get off the ground. Sadly, just as he’s about to get a break, an accident involving a manhole kills him and puts his soul in what looks to be the afterlife, where he comes across another soul named 22 (Tina Fey) who no longer sees Earth as anything special.
Soul arrives in theaters on June 19, 2020.
