Disney has unveiled a new inspiring trailer for Pixar’s animated movie Soul. The new trailer features the song “Parting Ways” which was written, produced, and performed by Cody ChesnuTT.
“Spend your precious hours doing what will bring out the real you — the brilliant, passionate you that’s ready to contribute something meaningful into this world. Get ready, your life is about to start.”
Soul comes from director Pete Docter (Up) and Jamie Foxx will be starring in the upcoming film as Joe, a guy who worked hard his whole to live his dream of being a jazz musician. Then, when the moment presents itself a disaster strikes. The story follows his soul on a journey into the afterlife where he meets 22, a soul who has yet to go to Earth, the character is played by Tina Fey. Together they have to find a way to get Joe back to his body.
The tagline for Soul: “Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams, and your interests come from? What is it that makes you… YOU?” The movie will take you on a trip from the streets of New York City to the infinite realms to discover the answers to life’s most significant questions.
“imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. 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.”
The upcoming movie also stars Daveed Diggs, Ahmir Questlove, Angela Bassett, and Phylicia Rashad. Globally renowned musician Jon Batiste will be writing original jazz music for the movie, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from Nine Inch Nails will create an original score that will drift between the real and soul worlds.
Soul will be released on June 19.
