The soul has the kind of brain-muddling and heart-swelling premise that only Pixar seems capable of.
The Lofty Idea tells the story of a college group teacher, Joe (Jamie Foxx), whose life suddenly seems to be in full swing until a fatal accident finds him in "The Great Before", the place where souls are lifted up and acquire their personality before they go to Earth.Desperate to return to his life in New York City, Joe teams up with Cynical Soul 22 (Tiny Fey), in a bid to escape.
It sounds complex and challenging, but director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up, Inside Out) and Kemp Powers absolutely offer you: read our Soul's five-star review on the London Film Festival for proof.
Below we have an exclusive new look at Soul, in the new issue of our sister publication, Total Film magazine . It stars Joe (in soul form) and 22 in The Great Before, revisiting the crucial moments in Joe's life. Check it out below:
