During this year’s Golden Globe awards, the Disney+ Original film “Soul” picked up two awards including “Best Animated Movie” and “Best Original Score”.
In the “Best Animated Movie” category, “Soul” beat “The Croods: A New Age”, “Over the Moon”, “Wolfwalkers” and “Onward”.
And in the “Best Original Score” category, “Soul” won the award, beating “The Midnight Sky”, “Tenet”, “News of the World” and “Mank”.
In Pixar’s “Soul”, we are introduced to Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
Directed by Academy Award winner Pete Docter (“Inside Out,” “Up”), co-directed by Kemp Powers (“One Night in Miami”) and produced by Academy Award nominee Dana Murray, p.g.a. (Pixar short “Lou”).
Pixar’s “Soul” is available now on Disney+.
