Disney, Pixar film 'Soul' postpones its premiere in local theaters
With no sign of the coronavirus dying down, Disney and Pixar decided to postpone the release of its highly anticipated movie “Soul,” which had been slated to hit local theaters on Dec. 25.
The press preview of the film was to be held on Thursday, but that too had to be canceled. Walt Disney Company Korea announced on Thursday that the film will try to premiere in January without specifying the date.
“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 animation features Tina Fey as the voice of 22, and Jamie Foxx as the voice of Joe Gardner.
Other films that were scheduled to hit local theaters this month are also rescheduling their openings. The films include “Seobok” and “Life is Beautiful.”
