Disney+ is celebrating the holidays in style this year. Pixar’s latest feature film, titled Soul, will arrive on Disney+ at no additional cost.
The movie centres on a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. Before he can enjoy his big break, he finds himself taking a detour to a fantastical place where he gets to learn more about what makes life worth living.
Soul will become available to stream in the UK on Christmas Day, Friday 25 December 2020.
You can stream Soul exclusively on Disney+ in the UK. The movie will be available to users as part of their subscription, no extra fee required. Soul was originally intended as a theatrical release but was redirected to streaming because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Disney+ comes with a generous content library rich in both TV series and movies. It includes titles not only from Disney itself, but also subsidiaries Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and Pixar. Make sure to check out highlights like The Mandalorian, Broadway musical Hamilton and cheerful holiday movie Godmothered.
Subscriptions to Disney+ in the UK currently cost £5.99 a month or £59.99 for an entire year. There’s no longer a free trial meaning you have to sign up to watch Soul.
Soul revolves around Joe Gardner, voiced by Jamie Foxx, a middle-school band teacher with a passion for jazz.
On the brink of getting his big break playing for a jazz quartet, Joe finds himself on an unexpected detour from the streets of New York to The Great Before, a magical place where new souls get their personalities before they go to Earth. Once there, he is tasked with helping a new soul (Tina Fey) find her spark before they can both head to the real world.
Described as a touching and funny tale of friendship and self-discovery, Soul features jazz compositions and arrangements by globally renowned musician and Grammy nominee Jon Batiste and an original score by Oscar winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. It was written and directed by Pete Docter, also responsible for the wonder that is Inside Out.
The movie premiered at the BFI London Film Festival back in October to excellent reviews. It currently has a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising it as a “stunning, highly imaginative and poignant piece that continues to prove Pixar is one of the boldest and most innovative animation studios out there”.
If Pixar’s history is any indication, the animation will be top-notch and the story memorable and heartwarming. Also, what better time to watch a movie about the meaning of life than around the holidays?
