Disney/Pixar’s Soul To To Debut On Disney+ This Christmas



Well, what a disastrous year for the movie world. Over and over again we have seen films continue to be pushed back. First, there was optimism about the fall and now studios are crossing their fingers for 2021. In some cases, some studios have decided they can’t wait for the theaters to open and have taken their films straight to streaming services and VOD. Disney Studios made the biggest splash when they decided to release their live-action Mulan on Disney+ for a premium price. Now another Disney film is ready to do the same.

The Walt Disney Company has announced that it’s Pixar Animation Studios feature film Soul, will debut exclusively on Disney+ on December 25th, 2020. International markets where their streaming service is not available will have a theatrical release of the film. Originally the Soul had been scheduled for a November 20th, 2020 theatrical release. With the growing number of subscribers and the difficulties of the ongoing pandemic, Disney feels like this is the best way for families and fans to enjoy their latest marquee Pixar film.


“We are thrilled to share Pixar’s spectacular and moving ‘Soul’ with audiences direct to Disney+ in December,” said Bob Chapek, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company. “A new original Pixar film is always a special occasion, and this truly heartwarming and humorous story about human connection and finding one’s place in the world will be a treat for families to enjoy together this holiday season.”


Soul is directed by filmmaker Pete Docter. He is the Academy Award-winning director from Inside Out and Up. As well as co-director/writer Kemp Powers, playwright and screenwriter of One Night in Miami. It features the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir, Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett, and Daveed Diggs. It features original jazz music by globally renowned musician Jon Batiste. Also, a score composed by Oscar winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

“The world can be an exhausting and frustrating place – but it’s also full of unexpected joys, even in seemingly mundane things,” said Docter, director of Soul and Chief Creative Officer of Pixar Animation Studios. “ ‘Soul’ investigates what’s really important in our lives, a question we’re all asking these days. I hope it will bring some humor and fun to people at a time when everyone can surely use that.”


It’s really unfortunate that studios are having to make the tough choices of going straight to VOD or streaming services. Specifically, I feel for the independently owned theaters across the nation that keep losing films to show at their locations. Well, that is if they are able to operate. With that said, I am excited that on Christmas we can curl up on the couch and enjoy the next Pixar film, Soul.
