Pixar’s first black-led project congregates a body of rich talent for the new animated film Soul. Voice cast of the film features Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Conquest, Phylicia Rasha and others.
Soul follows middle school band teacher Joe Gardener (Jamie Foxx) who’s heart is inspired by the groove of jazz. After a fall in one of NYC’s gaping sewers, Joe visits the You Seminar where his soul is assigned a human for a mission on earth.
The heavens give Joe the opportunity to pursue his souls success of performing in the Blue Note – a popular jazz club based in New York. But, before the blessing comes the trail.
Oscar-winning jazz composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are contributing their art to the film along with The Late Show With Stephen Colbert band leader Jon Batiste.
Disney Pixars’ Soul brings spiritual essence to theaters June 19, 2020.
