The latest feature coming from Disney Pixar is called “Soul” and it’s a very interesting premise for sure. The first trailer just recently dropped and I’ve presented that along with some background and the voice casting for this animated release. Check it out down below.

The Premise:
Joe Gardner, a middle school music teacher, has long dreamed of performing jazz music onstage, and finally gets a chance after impressing other jazz musicians during an opening act at the Half Note Club. However, an untimely accident causes Gardner’s soul to be separated from his body and begin to proceed to the Great Beyond, and Gardner escapes to the Great Before, a world where souls develop personalities, quirks, and traits before being sent off to Earth. There, Gardner must work with souls in training at the Great Before, such as 22, a soul with a dim view on the concept of life, in order to return to Earth before his body dies and also avoid a soul-counter named Terry, who goes to earth to find Joe and bring him back to the afterlife to meet her quota.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: This looks to be a fun film for sure but as many of you readers already know, I don’t generally get to the theater to see these kinds of films based on my event itinerary and since I don’t have little ones of my own to drag me to such things. I do enjoy them but generally when they hit the premium channels I pay for and since this is a partial Disney feature I imagine that it will manifest at some point on Disney+. I can wait but I did enjoy this clip and think it will be a quirky charming film. Now if I can be serious for a moment. The talk of this virus coming our way is no longer just talk it seems and we appear to be ready to batten down the hatches in my own locality. Who knows how bad this will be and if it will effect events and gathering places. Only time will tell so be safe and by all means chime in down below with your thoughts about the trailer. See you again soon.
