Pixar’s “Soul” does not air in theaters.
Instead, the anticipated movie will premiere via the Disney Plus streaming service just in time for Christmas on Friday, December 25, 2020.
As with “Mulan” and “Hamilton”, this is another example of a Disney film that went from a conventional release straight to the small screen. While “Soul” was originally scheduled to debut in June, the COVID-19 pandemic led to several postponements and, eventually, a launch focused on Disney Plus.
Unlike “Mulan”, however, “Soul” will not feature any premium subscription fees to access it. Anyone with a Disney Plus subscription will be able to watch the movie the moment it is released.
Here’s what you need to know to watch “Soul” when it’s available.
You can sign up for Disney Plus on the streaming service website. It costs $ 6.99 a month or $ 69.99 a year. Similar to “Avante”, the previous Pixar film to be released on the platform, there will be no additional fees required to watch “Soul”.
Disney Plus subscribers also have unlimited access to almost all Disney shows and movies, as well as most content from Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic.
Soul will be available for streaming on Disney Plus from 3am Eastern Time on Friday, December 25th.
Once the film is released, viewers will be able to watch it as many times as they want, unless they cancel the subscription. Pixar Animation Studios is a subsidiary of Disney Studios, with all of its content available on demand to anyone with a Disney Plus subscription.
The streaming service is the only way to watch the movie in the near future.
The voice cast of “Soul” is led by Jamie Foxx, along with Tina Fey, Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, Daveed Diggs and Angela Bassett.
