Imagine being part of the creative team that brought you Toy Story, Inside Out and Coco. Your art has brought joy to millions, and will forever go down in animation history.
Whatever you do, don’t let your mind run wild and imagine that you were part of the creative team behind Cars 2. Just don’t inflict that misery upon yourself.
Ever since their feature film debut in 1995, Pixar has been producing incredible full-length pictures, and it doesn’t look like their stopping. (Even if a certain pandemic is trying to push their release back.)
Do you not see the woes they’re already enduring? You’re making them wear face masks, in an attempt to corrupt the breathing apparatus Jesus bestowed them with; and now this?! Sheesh.
Well, we don’t know exactly when these films will be released, but until then, we can keep on reading my brief synopsises, right?
Soul is a delightful romp, utilising in-your-face comedy but subtle emotion as we – oh, wait. That’s what I would be saying if Soul had have been released on its original date.
Instead, Soul has (so far) been pushed back until November 20, 2020.
Pixar’s 23rd feature film follows Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) pursue his dream of playing jazz… Until, y’know, he dies. Thanks, Pixar, for killing Coral, Ellie, Bing Bong and now this. I’M JUST ONE MAN.
Joe then wakes up in a “vaporous” and “ethereal” world, where he’s is forced to think again about what it truly means to have – you guessed it – soul.
Helmed by Enrico Casarosa, director of La Luna, and storyboard artist for many of Pixar’s other previous hits, Luca is said to focus on a boy who is also named Luca. What a handy coincidence, eh?
According to Pixar, “he experiences an unforgettable summer in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera”.
Deadline reported that Luca’s best friend just so happens to be a sea monster from another world, but I, too, would say that about my bestie when his sugar-levels get a little low, so who knows if Deadline are being literal or not.
Luca is set for release in summer 2021.
