Merry Christmas my dear readers if this is a holiday that you are celebrating along with us. I’m returning to the topic of the brand-new Disney Pixar release “Soul” which opens today and if you missed our trailer post from a few weeks ago just click HERE to be on point with that. As noted in the close of that post, we helped share the news that instead of hitting the theaters this was going to the Disney+ streaming service for all to see provided they are subscribers. There isn’t a premium cost like they did with “Mulan”. Let’s review the premise and voice casting below shall we.

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: When they announced that this would be on Disney+ I promised myself that I would sit and watch it since I did enjoy the trailers and I am in need of a solid animated feature for sure. I just don’t think this is going to be a day of plan for me. My plan for the Christmas Day holiday is to spend some long overdue time with family that I haven’t seen in far too long based on the virus. Sure the word of the day is to stay at home but I’ve been super duper double careful and I’m always masked and sporting gloves and I don’t get near anyone so that’s my mindset. I hope you readers are doing something fun today or attempting too. Just be safe and mind your surrounding and before we close this one up, what do you think about this premiering on Disney+? Are you subscribing yet or not? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you here again soon. Ciao.
