Joe Gardner is 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, 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.
Featuring the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Daveed Diggs, “Soul” is directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter (“Inside Out,” “Up”), co-directed by Kemp Powers (“One Night in Miami”) and produced by Academy Award nominee Dana Murray (Pixar short “Lou”). Globally renowned musician Jon Batiste will be writing original jazz music for the film, and Oscar®-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (“The Social Network”), from Nine Inch Nails, will compose an original score that will drift between the real and soul worlds.
So What Do You Think?
I am personally really intrigued by this trailer. I love the visual styles that are coming out with this movie. There are the more modern Pixar looks that we are used to. However, the more abstract line work used in this trailer was also interesting. I also like the different ways they are creating these different worlds. I think the premise for the movie itself is completely fascinating and I can’t wait to see how it plays out. I love the setup that is being shown in this trailer. It almost reminds me of a variation on the Mr. Holland’s Opus movie idea. However, in this case he didn’t have to wait until the end of his life to see his dream realized… or did he? I can’t wait to see this movie when it arrives in June. I also can’t wait to discuss this movie as I think there will be a lot of different things to talk about and analyze.
