The makers of Inside Out are now bringing out Soul, a new introspective adventure about a man’s journey to find his passion. The movie is set in New York City, in a middle school, where Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx) seems to have lost his passion for music.
Joe enlists the help of 22, a soul, to help him traverse The Great Before, a cosmic realm, to help him on his journey. The movie will “answer some of life’s important questions”, according to the makers of the film.
In the trailer, we see Joe landing a gig to play in a jazz band and he is on his way home when he falls in a manhole. He then finds himself heading towards The Great Beyond, where all the dead souls go. Desperate to find his way back, he escapes and lands in The Great Before.
Directed by the two-time Oscar winner Pete Docter and featuring Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Questlove, and Daveed Diggs, Soul is all set to hit theatres in the USA June 2020.
