Soul, Pixar’s latest hit, which debuted on Christmas Day on Disney+, unquestionably gave viewers the “feels,” making it one of the most heartwarming movies of the season.
The movie follows a jazz musician named Joe Gardner, the first Black protagonist in a Pixar movie, portrayed by Jamie Foxx, who goes on a soul-searching journey after he had a near-death experience. Joe becomes the unlikeliest of friends with 22, a soul trapped in the Great Before, portrayed by Tina Fey.
Critics, celebrities, and fans alike cannot stop talking about this amazing story. Here are a few of the best reactions that we have seen so far.
The ultimate message in #SoulMovie is so necessary. One that’s so easy to lose sight of too. It’s great to have a passion, and a blessing to be able to find some sort of success in it. But don’t ever get so caught up that you convince yourself it’s all you are.
