Check Out the New Sneak Peek for Pixar’s Soul

A new sneak peek trailer has been released for Soul. Scheduled to release in November, the Disney-Pixar animated feature sees Jamie Foxx lending his voice talents to Joe, a middle-school band teacher with a passion for music who gets the chance to play at the best jazz club in town. Check out the sneak peek here:

The sneak peek features the song “Parting Ways”, which is written, produced and performed by Cody ChesnuTT. Both Dr. Cole and Jon Batiste (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), who lent his expertise to the jazz arrangements and compositions in Soul, serve as cultural consultants on the film. Pixar chose to portray the film’s main character as a musician, because they wanted a profession the audience could root for.

Soul was originally scheduled to be released in on June 19, 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was delayed to November 19, 2020. On June 3, 2020, it was selected as part of the line-up for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival.

Soul
Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher whose true passion is playing jazz.

Soul introduces Joe Gardner– 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 (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 Pete Docter (Inside Out, Up), Soul opens in cinemas on November 19, 2020.

A few decades ago, before online job applications became the norm, resume objectives were the standard way to begin “snail mail” resumes. However, the internet made it possible for employers to exponentially increase their candidate pool. While this was good for employers, it has intensified the competition between job seekers in many industries.
