Soul was one of my favorite movies of the past year, so I was excited to see that Pixar has a new short coming based off 22 from the movie. 22 VS. EARTH will air on Disney+ and Tina Fey will be back voicing 22.
What’s the short about? In the short, “22 defies the rules of “The Great Before” and refuses to go to Earth, enlisting a gang of five other new souls in her attempt at rebellion. However, as her cohorts’ activities lead to unexpected results, 22’s subversive plot may actually lead to a surprising revelation about the meaning of life.”
The short is set before the events of Soul and will be directed by Pixar veteran Kevin Nolting.
“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.” Nolting said in a statement.
The short will premiere on Disney+ on April 30th.
