We haven’t really talked about Soul since it hasn’t really come up since the website relaunch, but now it has been affected by the ongoing worldwide crisis that is COVID-19.
Originally scheduled for an early fall release which was pushed back to November 20th, Soul will now be released straight to Disney+ on Christmas Day. The last film to make the leap to D+ was Mulan, but unlike that film Soul will be available for all subscribers without a premium price.
Soul tells the story of a music teacher who dreams of playing jazz in night clubs, and on the way to his first real gig gets in an accident and his soul is sent to the afterlife. Pete Docter (who directed Up and Inside Out) is directing, the screenplay is written by Kemp Powers, (who wrote the upcoming Regina Kind directed One Night in Miami), and t the film stars Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett and Daveed Diggs. There’s also original jazz from on Batiste and a score from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
This will probably be a good movie, is what I am saying people. We’ll all find out at Christmas!
