This week on the Film at Lincoln Center podcast we’re featuring a conversation about Pixar’s Soul with director Pete Docter and producer Dana Murray moderated by Glenn Kiser, Senior Director of the Dolby Institute. This conversation is presented by the Dolby Institute.
Soul introduces Joe Gardner, voiced by Jamie Foxx, a 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 22, a precocious soul voiced by Tina Fey, and discovers the answers to some of life’s most important questions. Disney and Pixar’s Soul is now streaming on Disney+.
