In August, Disney held its biannual D23 Expo event. During the 3 day extravaganza, fans of the Hollywood giant flocked to the Anaheim Convention Center to get the first scoop on the latest news and upcoming projects the studio has up its sleeve.

The event saw a whole host of trailers and previews for a slew of exciting upcoming shows and movies, as well as teasing project announcements away from the big screen, including tantalizing new additions to the Disney parks.

But one of the stand-outs from the event came courtesy of Pixar – who unveiled its new movie, Soul, which is certainly set to be a real tear-jerker as it’s literally about dying. The first teaser trailer for the animated movie has just dropped and it’s one of the saddest things we’ve ever seen (yes, even sadder than when Bing-Bong fades away in Inside Out).

Get your tissues at the ready, it’s about to get very emotional…

The bi-annual event is a major date in every Disney fanatic’s calendar.

During the event, fans learned about what they can expect from the studio in the up and coming months.

From nostalgic reboots and long-awaited Star Wars news to eye-popping new Disney park attractions, the studio hasn’t fallen short of exciting projects.

But one of the movies that stood out the most was Pixar’s new animated film, Soul

Mainly because it looks so damn heartbreaking. 

As in, this may be the saddest thing we’ve seen since that Inside Out scene…

That moment when Bing Bong fades away? Yep, we’re still crying.


The movie follows Joe (Jamie Foxx), a middle school band teacher who dreams of playing jazz music in a New York club. But, things take a turn when he loses his passion for music. 

You’re probably wondering what the hell the You Seminar is, right? Well, in the movie, it’s the place where we all get our souls. 

Voiced by Tina Fey, 22 is on the journey of trying to find herself.

If the teaser trailer (which has just dropped) is anything to go by, it looks like we’re in for a real tear-jerker with this one.

A whole film centering around death? Sounds fairly bleak, but we’re guessing they’ll be some kind of important hidden message illustrated through the movie.

Pixar have truly outdone themselves, which we didn’t even realize that was possible.

But, no matter how heartbreaking Soul seems, you bet we’ll be flocking to theatres to watch!

Details have been pretty scarce, so we’re eager to find out more about what the plot will entail in the lead up to its debut next year.

Even though we’ve only had a small taste of what is to come.

Soul will be hitting theatres on June 19, 2020.  Speaking of Disney, the Hollywood studio has just announced that a Hocus Pocus sequel is in the works and the original cast are set to reprise their iconic roles. Keep scrolling to learn more…
