Soul Filmmakers: Pete Docter, Kemp Powers & Dana Murray

.

.

Where do our personalities come from? The new Pixar-animated film SOUL takes a unique look at just that. We talked with Director Pete Docter, who said this started 23 years ago with the birth of his son, Producer Dana Murray on how perfectly placed SOUL is, and Co-director Kemp Powers on his first animated feature.

In Disney and Pixar’s “Soul,” Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx), a middle-school band teacher in New York City, makes one small misstep and ends up in The Great Before, a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. There, he meets Terry (voice of Rachel House), who is charged with the singular duty of keeping track of the entrants to The Great Beyond. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey) to show her what’s great about living. Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter, co-directed by Kemp Powers and produced by Academy Award® nominee Dana Murray, p.g.a., “Soul” will debut exclusively on Disney+ (where Disney+ is available) on December 25, 2020. ©2020 Disney/Pixar.

SOUL is now streaming on Disney+
