Pixar’s upcoming movie Soul is moving again, but it’s not just changing dates. In addition to getting a new release date, Soul will change venues, too; Disney will release Soul on Disney+ just in time for Christmas.
Soul will launch on the streaming service on December 25. Unlike the recent Mulan, which asked a $30 premium, Pixar’s latest animated film will launch at no additional cost to Disney+ subscribers. Soul, announced last summer, was initially set to launch this summer, but was later postponed to November 20 thanks to the pandemic.
“We are thrilled to share Pixar’s spectacular and moving Soul with audiences direct to Disney+ in December,” said Disney CEO Bob Chapek in an official statement. “A new original Pixar film is always a special occasion, and the truly heartwarming and humorous story about human connection and finding one’s place in the world will be a great for families to enjoy together this holiday season.”
