What Is Pixar Soul About?
When the trailer for this film was released, there was lots of speculation about what the story entailed.
Was it about death? Music? Technology? The ideas were running wild on the internet.
Here’s the actual synopsis of the film:
What is it that makes you…YOU? Pixar Animation Studios’ “Soul” introduces Joe Gardner (voice of 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 (voice of 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.
Award-winning Production and Direction
One aspect of SOUL that excites all of the Pixar fans out there is the team behind bringing life to this film.
“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, p.g.a. (Pixar short “Lou”).
How Long Is The Movie?
This may be a question that only parents of small children would ask, but as a mom of a 6 year old, it was important to me!
The run time of Pixar’s SOUL is 1 hour and 40 minutes, from the start to very quick after-credits scene.
Will your young kids sit through the whole film? Like many of our other film reviews for parents, we’ll talk about that in our upcoming Pixar’s SOUL review.
