'Soul', a Pixar Movie About Death, Gets Teaser and it's Already Heartbreaking | 22 Words

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...
