Disney and Pixar’s will release their latest full-length animated film, “Soul,” direct to Disney+ on Christmas day – December 25, 2020.
This is similar to what Disney did with the release of the latest Mulan remake (direct to Disney+), but is also different in that Disney+ subscribers will get to watch the movie for free (vs. paying an additional fee).
Disney CEO Bob Chapek released the following statement:
We are thrilled to share Pixar’s spectacular and moving ‘Soul’ with audiences direct to Disney+ in December. A new original Pixar film is always a special occasion, and this truly heartwarming and humorous story about human connection and finding one’s place in the world will be a treat for families to enjoy together this holiday season.
The movie tells the story of Joe, a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn’t quite gone the way he expected. Joe’s passion is jazz music, but when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.
