Watch the new trailer for Pixar's next movie, 'Soul'

With Onward now in theaters, Disney and Pixar are looking, well, onward. Today, they have released a new trailer for their upcoming Soul. The new trailer, which you can check out in the player below, shows off a lot more about the plot of the film and introduces us to Tina Fey’s character, a budding soul named 22. It’s surely no coincidence that Soul marks the 22nd film from the animation studio!

Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) 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 (Tina Fey), 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.

Also featuring the voices of Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, and Daveed Diggs, Soul is directed by Academy Award winner Pete Docter (Inside Out, Up), co-directed by Kemp Powers (One Night in Miami) and produced by Academy Award nominee Dana Murray (Pixar short Lou). Globally renowned musician Jon Batiste will be writing original jazz music for the film, and Oscar-winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (The Social Network), from Nine Inch Nails, will compose an original score that will drift between the real and soul worlds.

Soul opens in theaters everywhere June 19, 2020. You can take a look at the film’s new poster below:
