SOUL: Disney Pixar's Next Animated Movie Has Been Pushed Back From June To November 20th, 2020
Soul is the next animated film from Disney-Pixar. Originally set to debut in theatres on June 19th, Soul's release date has been pushed back all the way to November — on account of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Onward debuted in theatres last month and is already available to stream on Disney+ in the United States and Canada — due to the Coronavirus pandemic. What's next for Disney-Pixar? Well, it's Soul.
Soul is an upcoming animated starring the likes of Jamie Foxx (Just Mercy), Tina Fey (Mean Girls), Angela Bassett (Black Panther), Questlove (The Roots), Phylicia Rashad (The Cosby Show), and Daveed Diggs (The Little Mermaid). Directed by Academy Award-winner and Pixar CCO Pete Docter (Inside Out), Soul seems like it will be quite the existential affair.
Prior to today, Soul was set to arrive in theatres on June 19th, 2020. That's no longer the case. Disney has opted to move the release of Soul from June all the way to November (via Variety). Specifically, Soul is now set to arrive in theatres on November 20th, 2020.
Of course, this change has been made in order to counteract the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic — which has caused many a theatre to outright shut down. Soul is far from the only movie to be affected like this. Disney's live-action remake of Mulan was also delayed along with Disney's Jungle Cruise and many more.
Here's hoping the whole pandemic will be long behind us by the time November rolls around.
Joe Gardner, a middle school music teacher, has long dreamed of performing jazz music onstage, and finally gets a chance after impressing other jazz musicians during an opening act at the Half Note Club. However, an accident causes Gardner’s soul to be separated from his body and transported to the “You Seminar”, a center in which souls develop and gain passions before being transported to a newborn child, and Gardner must work with souls in training, such as 22, a soul with a dim view on life after being trapped for years at the You Seminar, in order to return to Earth before it’s too late.
Soul is set to arrive in theatres on November 20th, 2020.
