Disney+ subscribers have something to look forward to this Christmas — Pixar’s “Soul.”
The Walt Disney Company announced on Thursday that the animated film will debut exclusively on the streaming platform on Dec. 25. For international markets without access to Disney+, the movie will hit theaters at a yet-to-be-announced date.
From the award-winning filmmaker behind “Inside Out” and “Up,” “Soul” follows Joe, a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn’t quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz — and he’s good.
But, when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.

Pete Docter, director of “Soul” and chief creative officer of Pixar Animation Studios, shared, “The world can be an exhausting and frustrating place – but it’s also full of unexpected joys, even in seemingly mundane things. Soul investigates what’s really important in our lives, a question we’re all asking these days. I hope it will bring some humor and fun to people at a time when everyone can surely use that.”
