The latest Disney-Pixar movie came out on Christmas exclusively on Disney+. Soul is about a middle-aged man named Joe who finally has a chance to live his dream and playing jazz with a renowned saxophone player. But while walking home from his audition, he dies. While ascending to the great beyond, his soul finds its way to the great before, where it learns what it takes to make it back earthside.
Like many other Pixar movies before it, Soul hits you right in the feels. I think it’s a great film to help round out 2020. The main character realizes, even if you get everything you’ve wanted and realize your dreams, it might not feel like you expected. Your life isn’t fulfilled until you savor every-little-moment, slow down, and appreciate the little things. Sunshine. Leaf piles. Fresh pizza. A warm kitten.
If you have access to a Disney+ account, I recommend this film. It’s not really geared towards children, like other Pixar films (ahem Cars), and I think adults will appreciate the humor, music, themes, and moral.
