About this movie

What is it that makes you...YOU? Pixar Animation Studios' all-new feature film SOUL introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – 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 (voice of 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. Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter ("Inside Out," "Up"), co-directed by Kemp Powers ("One Night in Miami"), written by Kemp Powers & Mike Jones, and produced by Academy Award nominee Dana Murray (Pixar short "Lou"), SOUL also stars the voice talents of Phylicia Rashad, Questlove and Daveed Diggs. It features original jazz music by globally renowned musician Jon Batiste, and Oscar® winners Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross ("The Social Network"), from Nine Inch Nails, composed an original score that drifts between the real and soul worlds.

Dear fellow Googlers Overview: Soul was one of the most touching movie s from the motion picture company Pixar. Summery: The story revolves around a middle aged African American, music teacher man named Joe Gardener are games life a bit for granted, but this all changes one day when he gets his dream job: A jazz musician. But a tragedy happens. Joe dies and his Soul separates from his body and goes to a place called the great beyond a place where Souls to go rest. But Joe I not done with life yet, and falls to the great before, where Souls are born and transfer to bodies. In this place Joe now has to get a "spark" to go back to the human world. To get the spark he makes a deal with a soul called 22 who does not want to be a human. But she Joe gets into trouble and somehow Joe gets into a body of a cat and 22 gets into more past body. And this leads some whacky event Reveiw: This easily was unique. It is not often that a kids movie talks about death, life, and mortality. And it was deep material that in the end leaves you in tears. So i n short 10\10 Sincerely your friend The E.Y.E

This had much potential given its topic, but it's just another boring story without any laughs or interesting characters. Every scene just disappointed, and you're left wanting your time back.

This was such a amazing movie. I laughed, cried, and couldn't take my eyes off of this movie. I watched this multiple times that day, and it's just.. watch it please. Especially hits hard with those who are going through a lot of stuff. Beautiful, amazing plot, wonderful characters. Will watch this any day...just have to take my make up off first 🥺
