Disney earlier this week announced the Pixar movie ‘Soul’, which will be launched exclusively at Disney + on December 25, 2020.
The animated film was previously to be launched in cinemas on November 20, 2020, the film will jump straight to Disney + where the latter is available. International markets where Disney + is not available will see a theatrical release.
“We are excited to share Pixar’s spectacular and touching ‘Soul’ with the audience directly to Disney + in December,”
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the uncertainty surrounding a theatrical release means that another film jumps straight to streaming on Disney +, similar to what we saw with Mulan, to $ 34.99 CAD. It is unknown if ‘Soul’ will require a purchase of Disney Premier to see it first. Given that it is a huge Christmas Day release, we have a hunch Premier may be required.
Below is an overview of ‘Soul’:
What makes you … YOU? Pixar Animation Studios’ “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (the voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle school teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small mistake takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a wonderful place where new souls get their personalities, peculiarities and interests before they go to earth. Joe is determined to return to his life with an ancient soul, 22 (the voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s good about living, he can only discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions. “Soul” is directed by Oscar winner Pete Docter (“Inside Out”, “Up”), co-directed by Kemp Powers (“One Night in Miami”) and produced by Oscar nominee Dana Murray, due (Pixar short “Lou” ).
