Pixar Shares First ‘Soul’ Teaser Trailer Starring Tina Fey And Jamie Foxx

'Soul' Starring Tina Fey And Jamie Foxx

A new cosmos-centred Pixar movie featuring the voice talent of Tina Fey and Jamie Foxx, among others? Yess.

Thursday, Pixar shared the first teaser trailer for their 2020 release Soul, co-directed by Pete Docter and Kemp Powers. Foxx plays school teacher/jazz musician Joe Gardner, who—through delightfully Pixary means—ends up at something existentially enticing called the “You Seminar.”

In a statement accompanying the teaser trailer’s release, Docter—who wrote and directed the spectacular Inside Out and Up and has story credits on the exceptional WALL-E and Toy Story—spoke of how the birth of his son decades ago ultimately marked the genesis of Soul’s story

“It started with my son—he’s 23 now—but the instant he was born, he already had a personality,” Docter said. “Where did that come from? I thought your personality developed through your interaction with the world. And yet, it was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are.”

Powers added that Foxx’s character is on a journey that should be familiar to all artists. “He’s increasingly feeling like his lifelong dream of being a jazz musician is not going to pan out and he’s asking himself ‘Why am I here? What am I meant to be doing?’ Joe personifies those questions,” Powers said.

Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, and Daveed Diggs also provide voice talent for the surefire critical and box office hit. Soul arrives June 19. See the teaser trailer below.
