According to Disney and Pixar, the story of “Soul” revolves around a middle-school band teacher named Joe Gardner, who finds himself in “The Great Before,” which is a “fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth.”
 
Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, and shows her what’s so great about living as he is determined to return to his life.  
 
The teaser images show photorealistic scenes of New York and surreal landscapes that can be expected from Pixar.
 
The animation features Tina Fey as the voice of 22, and Jamie Foxx as the voice of Joe Gardner.
 
The voices for the dubbed Korean version of “Soul” have not yet been revealed.
