Check out the first trailer for Disney’s next animated film all about death, “Soul”

Get ready for feels! Disney & Pixar have just released the first trailer for the next animated movie, titled “Soul”. Featuring the voices of Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, this movie will remain in the same vein as “Up”, “Inside Out”, and “Coco” by kicking you square in the feels. This time, it’s all about death. What that means for a Disney movie remans to be seen, but it’s clear the topics the latest batch of Disney movies have been covering are much more based in reality than they have been in the past. But don’t take my word for it – give the trailer and watch and let me know how hard you will be fighting back the ugly sob.

Here is the official description from Disney:

Directed by two-time Academy Award®-winner Pete Docter, co-directed by Kemp Powers and produced by Academy Award®-nominee Dana Murray, Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” opens in theaters on June 19, 2020. According to Docter, the idea for the story is 23 years in the making. “It started with my son—he’s 23 now—but the instant he was born, he already had a personality,” says Docter. “Where did that come from? I thought your personality developed through your interaction with the world. And yet, it was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are.”

“Soul” introduces Joe Gardner, a middle-school band teacher whose true passion is playing jazz. “I think Joe is having that crisis that all artists have,” says Powers. “He’s increasingly feeling like his lifelong dream of being a jazz musician is not going to pan out and he’s asking himself ‘Why am I here? What am I meant to be doing?’ Joe personifies those questions.”

In the film, just when Joe thinks his dream might be in reach, a single unexpected step sends him to a fantastical place where he’s is forced to think again about what it truly means to have soul. That’s where he meets and ultimately teams up with 22, a soul who doesn’t think life on Earth is all it’s cracked up to be. Jamie Foxx lends his voice to Joe, while Tina Fey voices 22. “The comedy comes naturally,” says Murray. “But the subtle emotion that reveals the truth to the characters is really something special.”
