Do you ever wonder where your souls come from? Where they form, where they develop personal quirks, talents, and traits? Pixar’s Soul provides a deep dive into the before-life.

Joe Gardner is a middle school music teacher who dreams of becoming a jazz legend. Just as he’s about to get his big break, an accident causes his soul to be separated from his body. Before his soul enters the Great Beyond, he manages to escape. He ends up in the Great Before, a magical world where souls are formed. There, Joe meets and works with souls-in-training, to get back to earth before his body dies.

Featuring the voice talents of Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, Pixar’s Soul is just the kind of heartwarming imaginative romp Pixar is known for.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream Pixar’s Soul.

Pixar’s Soul Reviews

What the critics are saying:

  • “It all blends together beautifully, a marriage of Pixar’s square, safe, feel-good sensibility with what could be described as the “real world” — and one that, much as “Inside Out” anthropomorphized the mind, will leave audiences young and old imagining their own souls as glowing idiosyncratic cartoon characters.” –Peter Debruge, Variety
  • “At times, Soul is as heavy as it sounds, and invites all sorts of contemplation from viewers about our purpose on this planet, and whatever (and wherever) comes afterwards. At other times, it is uproariously funny, particularly after Joe and 22’s story takes a very unexpected turn in its second half. In typical Pixar fashion, it’s also visually stunning.” –Matt Singer, Screen Crush
