Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have been composing music for films as we’ve seen from the Academy Award Winning The Social Network to the Netflix Film Bird Box. The duo have now signed on to compose music for the upcoming Disney’s Pixar animation feature, Soul. The Pete Docter (Up!, Monsters, Inc) directed film is scheduled to premiere on June 19th, 2020 starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey.
IMDB summarizes the film as:
“A journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms, discovering the answers to life’s most important questions.”
During this past weekend’s D23 expo, Variety reported more information on the film’s plot:
“Soul imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Jamie Foxx will play a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at legendary New York jazz club The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm — with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig.”
