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.”
“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.
