This weekend marks the release of Pixar’s Toy Story 4, but you won’t have to wait much longer for a new film from this powerhouse. Pixar has just revealed that it will release the new film Soul in 2020.

The details of Pixar’s Soul are under wraps, but Disney released a statement describing the story as follows, “Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interest come from? What is it that makes you… YOU? In 2020, Pixar Animation Studios takes you on a journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms to discover the answers to life’s most important questions.”

If the premise reminds you a little of another Pixar movie, Inside Out, it’s not all that surprising considering that both films are directed by Pixar vet Pete Doctor.

The movie isn’t the only Pixar film releasing next year. Despite generally releasing one film per year, the studio already announced another new movie, Onward, starring Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, which will hit theaters on Mar. 6, 2020.


Soul will debut in theaters just four months later on Jun. 19, 2020.
