Disney-Pixar Announce New Feature Called ‘Soul’ to Debut in 2020

With Toy Story 4 hitting theaters today, and Onward getting its first trailer, Disney-Pixar are teasing their next release for 2020 — an animated feature called “Soul.”

The movie will be helmed by master animation director Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out). But nobody really seems to know what it will be about.

Here’s some speculation from Film School Rejects

Most of the details about Soul are being kept top secret for now. All we know is that the story will start in New York City before taking us on a cosmic journey to discover the answers to life’s most important questions. Furthermore, Pixar released a tagline which poses one of these questions: “Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams, and your interests come from? What is it that makes you… YOU?”

Of course, fans will also be thrilled to know that Pete Docter will helm the new adventure. Despite being creatively involved in most of the studio’s output in some capacity, he’s only directed three of its films — Monsters Inc.UpInside Out — and they all rank up there with the best of them. Docter taking the reins is reason enough to be excited about this upcoming cosmic adventure.

Is Pixar taking on the afterlife again, so soon after Coco? It sounds like that might be the case.

Oscar nominee Dana Murray (“Lou”) is producing. A voice cast has not yet been announced.

“Soul” will be opening against Universal’s untitled Pete Davidson comedy, directed by Judd Apatow.

Disney-Pixar’s Soul opens on June 19, 2020. Onward opens earlier in the year, on March 6.
