Soul, the new CGI enlivened movie from Pixar, is dropping on Disney+ on December 25 th, 2020. To celebrate its freeing, IGN sat down with Pixar movie director Pete Docter to talk about all the creativity that went into intend the titular feelings like Joe( Jamie Foxx) and 22( former SNL cast member Tina Fey ), as well as the unearthly kindergarten teachers, better known as the counselors.

A ex-serviceman director of Pixar animated movies like Monsters Inc, Up, and Inside Out, Pete Docter is one of the most wonderful leads at Pixar. Soul, his new film( which is premiering on Dinsey Plus ), follows an aspiring jazz musician turned music teach, who, after an accident comes face to face with his mortality and the great beyond. This isn’t the first Disney Pixar collaboration to take on difficult topics. But with Soul, Disney schools children about the meaning of life and the acceptance of death.

While this Pete Docter interview doesn’t focus much on the story of Soul, it does take a deep look into the Soul animation process and highlightings all the creativity that was needed to design the out-of-this-world characters.

We hope you enjoyed this Pete Docter interview and for all things Disney, Soul, and Pixar stay chanted to IGN.
