Without a doubt, the coronavirus pandemic has changed everyone’s plans in almost every possible way. In the entertainment industry things are no different, in fact it seems that we are far from summarizing all the consequences that this delicate global health situation has brought only to the cinema, for example. The new Disney and Pixar film, Soul, will skip the cinema and premiere directly in Disney Plus.
Many of the most awaited films of the year have had to be delayed, some of them several times, leaving 2020 without the great expected titles as No Time to Die or Dune. On the other hand, some production companies have chosen to release their films via streaming, so it is not surprising that Soul will be released directly in Disney Plus on December 25, 2020.
Last April, Disney and Pixar announced that Soul would be delayed from June 19 to November 12, 2020. This coincides with the measures that other studios were taking for the release of their outstanding productions. The novelty is that this animated film will not be in cinemas, but will arrive directly on the Mickey Mouse platform.
By the date chosen for the launch of Soul, December 25, 2020, Disney Plus will already be present in Mexico and several Latin American countries, as the service starts operations in this region on November 17.
Soul was co-directed by Pete Docter and Kemp Powers. The first one has been director and scriptwriter in great titles of the study, like Up, a high adventure and the brilliant Intensely. In the original voices, Soul has Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey. The story written by the directors and Mike Jones is about a music teacher named Joe Gardner, who dreams of becoming a jazz musician. However, by a strange accident his soul is detached from his body and the adventure begins so that soul and body are reunited before it is too late.
