Disney’s Pixar has created a brand new short featuring 22 from the oscar-winning animated film “Soul” called “22 Vs Earth”.
This short is set before the events of “Soul” and see 22 continuing to defy the rules of The Great Before and refuses to go to Earth, but this leads 22 to feel lonely as everyone she knows eventually heads to Earth.
22 blames the Earth for her loneliness and enlists a gang of five other new souls in her attempt at rebellion. However, things don’t go according to plan as 22’s newly-found friends also find their true purpose, leading to a surprising revelation about the meaning of life.
If you enjoyed “Soul”, you’ll going to love this short, since it’s a simple expansion of the film and delivers exactly what you’d expect. The Great Before looks beautiful, with its soft pastels, colours and fluffy clouds.
Usually, when Pixar release a movie on DVD, a brand new short is released on the disc as a bonus feature and “22 Vs Earth” feels just like that. This short doesn’t change anything about the movie or have any lasting impact, but it’s fun and to the point. I really enjoyed it and have watched it a couple of times already, so I’m sure younger “Soul” fans are going to enjoy this, especially since it takes some of the more fun moments from the film and delivers a nice bite-sized piece.
“22 Vs Earth” is an easy recommendation for all Disney+ subscribers to check out on Friday 30th April. It’s got everything you would want if you enjoyed 22’s adventures in Soul.
Rating 4 out of 5.
