Just days before Pixar’s Toy Story 4 hits theaters, Disney and Pixar has announced a brand-new original film is going to be hitting theaters summer 2020. Disney/Pixar are also releasing an original film later this year, Onward, starring Chris Pratt and Tom Holland. We’ll keep live updates here as they come as we learn more and more about what Disney and Pixar have in store with Soul. Here’s everything we know so far.
June 19th, 2020
Soul is slated for release in June of 2020 and at this time it doesn’t seem like it’ll have much competition at the box office. Wonder Woman 1984 releases two weeks prior on June 5th, 2020 and an untitled Judd Apatow/Pete Davidson flick will be also be released on June 19th (but the target audiences are vastly different).
Pixar has committed to releasing just original films for a while after a series of sequels ending with Toy Story 4 – but if they ever decide to go back we have a lot of ideas for sequels.
While no cast has been announced yet, Inside Out‘s Pete Docter will return to the director’s chair and Brave‘s Dana Murray is on-board as a producer (she was the art manager on Brave).
What is Soul about?
In their announcement posts on social media Disney and Pixar stated that Soul will “take you on a journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms to discover the answer to life’s most important questions.” Which sounds incredibly cool but could really be about anything; the title card seems to be a cutout of the sky with the sun in the ‘O’ so perhaps the sun will play some kind of role.
According to a report by Deadline, the film’s tagline reads “ever wonder where your passion, dreams, and your interests come from? What is it that makes you…YOU?” So there’s that…we’ll have more details soon so be sure to check back here for all of your Disney/Pixar updates.
