Jamie Foxx sadly lost his sister DeOndra last month. While promoting SOUL, his latest film for Disney*Pixar, Foxx described how the film's message about appreciating the little things in life reminds him of how his sister lived her life and the lesson she taught him. Watch as he beautifully honors his sister.
SOUL premieres on Disney+ on December 25. Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett and Daveed Diggs star as the voice talent in the Pixar movie. SOUL comes from visionary filmmaker Pete Docter, the Academy Award®-winning director behind INSIDE OUT and UP, and co-director/writer Kemp Powers, playwright and screenwriter of ONE NIGHT IN MIAMI..
In SOUL, 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.
