The Soul cartoon is the work of Pete Docter, an award-winning, Oscar®-winning director behind the legendary works Inverted Reverse and Heaven.
At the heart of the story is Joe, a music art teacher in elementary school, who dreams of becoming a jazz musician. On the eve of a big performance that could bring him the desired career, Joe experiences an accident that causes his soul to separate from his body. Joe’s soul wants and needs to return to his life, and the mysterious character “22” will help him along the way.

The world can be an exhausting and frustrating place – but it is also full of unexpected joys even in these seemingly everyday things. Cartoon Soul deals with an issue that interests us all, explores what is important in our lives. I hope that this cartoon will bring the humor and fun that we really need in these times – said Pete Docter.
