Hollywood wants to make sure we all have a Merry Christmas and one of the gifts they are offering is Soul, the newest production from Pixar Studios. The film was originally scheduled to premiere at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival before it hit theaters on November 20th. However, none of these events occurred due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Soul will premiere on Disney + December 25th, Christmas Day, and will be available to all streaming service subscribers. The film has an A + vote. The animated feature plays Jamie Foxx as the lead vocalist of an aspiring jazz pianist who makes a living as a high school band teacher, and is the animation studio’s first film to feature a black lead. Star-studded voices also include Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, Tina Fey, Questlove, Angela Bassett, Alice Braga, and Wes Studi.
The Pixar movie is the latest major Disney release that goes straight to Disney +. The Mickey Mouse company also posted Artemis Fowl, The One and Only Ivan and Mulan for the service, although the latter was available for a $ 30 premium fee for three months before being made available to all subscribers on December 4th. Frozen 2, Onward and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker are also offering early after the cinema runs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The movie is only available through the Disney + subscription service, which is $ 6.99 per month or $ 12.99 / month with the Disney + / Hulu / ESPN + bundle purchase.
