The first look trailer for Pixar’s Soul is here and it looks absolutely incredible.
There’s something about Disney and Pixar that just warms the heart isn’t there. The studio has released the emotional feel-good hits Inside Out, Coco, and Toy Story 4 in the last five years and today they have released the first look trailer for their latest film Soul.
Starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, Soul tells the story of middle school music teacher, Joe Gardner, who gets the chance of a lifetime to perform in a jazz band on stage for the first time.
However, his life changes forever after an accident causes Gardner’s soul to be separated from his body and transported to the You Seminar, a place in which souls develop and gain passions before being transported to a newborn child. Gardner must work with souls in training, such as 22, a soul with a dim view on life after being trapped for years and having to return to Earth before they are too late.
So yeah, you can imagine this one will be a definite tearjerker.
Check out the brand new trailer for Soul below:
Starring Jamie Foxx as Gardner and Tina Fey as 22, Soul looks set to carry on the trend of recent heartwarming stories from Pixar and Disney and as you can imagine, plenty fans are already excited for their latest animation.
One of the reasons why Pixar films are loved by so many is because they appeal to both adults and children; they’ve continually explored older and more ‘adult’ themes of friendships and relationships and even questioning our views on life, ever since the release of Toy Story back in 1995.
As well as the Toy Story franchise, Pixar released the hugely popular Up in 2009, which still has a Rotten Tomatoes approval rating of 98% and more recently Coco, which explored the themes of life and death.
Judging by the first trailer, it looks as though Soul will have plenty of heart, soul and whatever else it is that makes Pixar films so powerful.
Directed by Pete Docter, who also directed the incredible coming of age Pixar film Inside Out, Soul is set for a UK release in June 2020 by Walt Disney Studios.
