‘Soul’ Trailer: Is All This Living Really Worth Dying For?

Pixar has just released the new Soul trailer. And let me tell you, I am sold on this premise. (It also looks leagues better than Onward.)

Alright, this is the Pixar I remember. The first teaser released last year didn’t really give us much to think about. But now that we have a full trailer it’s clear that this film will tug at our heart strings. Director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up, Inside Out) just loves to make us cry.

I’m really interested in the premise of this film. The Great Before seems like a great concept, and tying souls with jazz is an obvious no-brainer. I think Pixar has a future classic on their hands.

Plot Synopsis:

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.

Soul hits theaters June 19, 2020.

What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
