Jamie Foxx voices aspiring jazz pianist Joe Gardner and Tina Fey voices the unborn soul "22" in Pixar's Soul. The duo spoke with IGN about what they think about Soul's message and timing, and also share their sights on which historical figures they would have loved to have been mentored by in the Great Before.

What is it that makes you...YOU? Pixar Animation Studios' all-new feature film Soul introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) - a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before - a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what's great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life's most important questions.

Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter (Inside Out, Up), co-directed by Kemp Powers (One Night in Miami) and produced by Academy Award nominee Dana Murray, p.g.a. (Pixar short Lou), Disney and Pixar's Soul will be available exclusively on Disney+ (where Disney+ is available) beginning Dec. 25, 2020.
