Pixar has a new history-making animated feature coming out this year. Soul, starring Jamie Foxx, will feature Pixar's first black lead.
The movie is based around Joe Gardner, a jazz musician and music teacher, whose soul suddenly leaves his body. The euphemism symbolizes death, and similarly to fellow Pixar film Coco, explores the great beyond.
Fans are excited about the interesting plot, that gives off Inside Out vibes, and are happy about the black representation in a Pixar film. However, some people are apprehensive about the film's depiction of black people and the lack of actual representation seen in the first trailer.
Watch the adorable trailer here, I can already feel the tears coming on.
This film will no doubt be as heartfelt and emotional as Coco or Inside Out. Those two Pixar movies dealt with heavy emotions in a palatable way for children, and the movies were just downright good. I can't wait to see how Soul tackles the afterlife.
