Pixar’s Soul envisages how personalities are shaped and formed.
During his time at the soul factory-like setting — where personalities are tailor-made in accord with certain regulations and age-old guidelines – Joe meets 22 (Tina Fey), a snarky, hilarious non-believer who has little appreciation for humans, no matter how much success they managed to attain in the mysterious world of jazz music.
22 will be the character to put an end to Joe’s troubles — and help him find a way back to Earth.
As the director of Soul, Pete explained in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he wanted to push further the limits of animation.
The 2015 Inside Out marked Pixar’s first departure from traditional representations — envisaging how human emotions work from a radically different point of view.
With Soul, they venture into an entirely new terrain, creating easily-relatable, humorous depictions of abstract, hard-to-pin-down concepts like a personality, a soul, or a type of character.
