New Soul Preview Released by Disney!

-

The Walt Disney Studios has released a new Soul preview that debuted during a virtual panel titled “Finding ‘Soul'” from the Essence Festival of Culture. The panel, which you can watch below, included director Pete Docter, co-director and screenwriter Kemp Powers, and producer Dana Murray, as well as American anthropologist/educator Dr. Johnnetta Cole and globally-renowned jazz pianist Jon Batiste.

The Soul preview features the song “Parting Ways,” written, produced and performed by Cody ChesnuTT. Both Dr. Cole and Jon Batiste, who lent his expertise to the jazz arrangements and compositions in Soul, serve as cultural consultants on the film.

Coming to theaters on November 20, 2020, the highly-anticipated Pixar movie features the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir-Khalib Thompson a.k.a. Questlove, Angela Bassett, and Daveed Diggs.

What is it that makes you…YOU? This November, Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new feature film Soul introduces Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) – 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 (Tina Fey), 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.

The film 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, p.g.a. (Pixar short Lou).

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.
