Needless to say, 2020 has had some weird vibes. We don’t need to tell you exactly what went down this year (heck, we all experienced it), but we will say that we’re counting down the days until the festive season truly kicks off and we can all celebrate the end of the year.
Per usual, Disney is right there with us, delivering exactly what we need — right when we need it.
This Christmas, we’ll be settling in with the fam to watch Disney and Pixar’s brand new film, Soul. In fact, to celebrate the release of their new, feel-good animated film, we’re giving away $5,000 to one of you lucky humans. All you have to do to be in the running is tell us in 25 words or less above how you’ll be reinvigorating your soul in January, and rid yourself of the weird 2020 juju. We want to know exactly what you plan to do to rediscover your inner spark and keep the good vibes going all year.
We guarantee Disney and Pixar’s Soul will be just the inspiration you need to shake off 2020 and walk into the new year with a refreshed mind. The film will make you want to make a meaningful mark on the world, and it’ll help you feel inspired to explore your own inner spark and discover what really makes you, you.
Disney and Pixar’s Soul starts in New York City, where we follow middle school band teacher Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx) on the most exciting day of his career. See, Joe has always dreamed of being a jazz musician and he’s just been given the chance of a lifetime, to fulfil his lifelong purpose and play the best jazz club in the city.
But right after Joe secures the gig, he falls down a pothole and finds himself in the place where new souls get their quirks and figure out what they love, find their interests and discover their purpose in life before heading to earth.
This is where Joe meets 22 (voiced by arguably the funniest woman on earth, Tina Fey) — a soul who’s not really sold on the whole human experience thing. Cue adventures where Joe tries to show 22 how special living can be and along the way, he might just rediscover his own inner spark, too. And, honestly, we could all use a little bit of that energy right now.
Disney and Pixar’s Soul will be available to stream on Disney+ from Christmas Night in Australia and Boxing Day in New Zealand. Judging from the trailer, this movie is going to feel like a big, warm hug:
