Pixar Has Announced A 'Soul' Themed Short Set To Premiere This Month

Pixar Has Announced A 'Soul' Themed Short Set To Premiere This Month

22 vs. Earth

Pixar's hit animation 'Soul' has made our hearts weep. If have you wondered what life was like for sidekick 22 before meeting Joe your questions will be answered in the new short "22 vs. Earth" premiering April 30.

"22 vs. Earth" follows 22 before meeting Joe Gardner in Soul (2020). Voiced by Tina Fey, fans are sure in for the quite the ride.

Tina Fey Returns as 22

Starring Emmy winning actress and writer Tina Fey of 30 Rock (2006-2013), "22 vs. Earth" takes place many moons before 22 and star of Soul Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) meet.

"22 vs. Earth" focuses on 22's dissatisfaction with The Great Before, assembling a team of quite high-spirited new souls to defy expectations explaining to them why she refuses to go to Earth.

Directed by Kevin Nolting

Soul editor Kevin Nolting will be taking on the spin-off's directing position. Nolting spoke of the prequel stating,

"While making Soul, we talked about the why of a new soul not wanting to live on Earth, but it didn't ultimately belong in that movie. '22 vs. Earth' was a chance to explore some of the unanswered questions we had about why 22 was so cynical. As a fairly cynical person myself, it felt like perfect material."

On a high off of two Golden Globe Awards and two BAFTA Awards, fans of the franchise are eager to see what's next.

Pixar's "22 vs. Earth" premieres April 30 on Disney+.
