What do you … do you? In November, Pixar Animation Studios' new film, Soul, features Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a high school band teacher who has the chance of a lifetime to play at the city's best jazz club. But a small misstep takes you from the streets of New York to The Great Before – a fantastic place where new souls obtain their personalities, peculiarities and interests before going to Earth.
Determined to return to his life, Joe joins an early soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who never understood the appeal of human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what is good about living, he can discover the answers to some of life's most important questions.
