Soul Pitch Meeting
Step inside the pitch meeting that led to Pixar’s Soul!
Subscribe for more Pitch Meetings:
The people at Pixar are master storytellers, and in recent years have been tackling some increasingly mature themes with movies like Inside Out and Coco. Their latest movie, Soul, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, tackles the subject of what happens to the soul after we die. These are still kid’s movies, right?
Soul does raise some questions though. Like what kind of injury did Joe sustain when he fell into the manhole? How is his body totally fine when he jumps back into it later? Why aren’t any of the other souls freaking out about their deaths? Is Joe really the first one to freak out and push on the wall a little? What happened to the soul of the doctor he impersonated? Or the cat for that matter? What kind of a message is that ending sending? Why is Marie Antoinette only a floating head?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Pixar’s Soul! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

    I haven't watched the movie, but it seems like its a movie with a great first half, and a slapped on 2nd half. Kind of like a reverse Rogue One. Or a reverse Matrix Reloaded.

    I gotta be honest, the hardest part to believe was that he was able to escape the conveyor and that no one does that... Terry should have just been "Oh great, the count is off again, someone is trying to escape the Great Beyond... again..."

    Love the show! I hope you'd consider doing older movies sometime like Ms. miniver, Stormy Weather, Gigi, Hello Dolly etc. Also, the cat doesn't have a soul. Most religion that talk about souls are pretty clear on the animals don't have them front so I interpreted the bit with the cat as animals are empty vessels. (I love animals, they obviously have soul and personality. Just sayin' most books that believe in souls don't believe in animal soul.)

    Not Pixar’s best story or writing but man their animation abilities are getting better and better. The movie looks gorgeous. But even I, an adult, was asking my 9 year old daughter what was going on throughout the film.

    Do ANNA Or Do THE LAST DRAGON 🐉 Anna is a train wreck set in the late 1980s made by Boomers that lived through the 1980s and yet have no idea how many government websites the average Soviet street urchin would have access to with the kind of color wifi enabled laptop the average Soviet street urchin was likely to own in 1985 🤯 And THE LAST DRAGON 🐉 is the greatest movie ever made sooo do them

    So if the souls don't have any senses and the *Plot Hole* is that they can still touch, see and hear, *PLOT TWIST* ...then why does his soul wear glasses? Pixar could've just let him wear a hat and we would still recognize his soul... Right?
