Soul - 4 Stars - DISNEY PLUS - December, 2020

Pixar creates a delight in Soul, the story of a middle school band teacher who longs to make it as a jazz musician.  Just as he's about to get his big break, fate intervenes.  The poor guy falls down a manhole and finds himself on the way to the great beyond.  Jamie Fox voices Joe, who wins a chance to return to earth if he can mentor the troubled soul in training voiced by Tina Fey.  Pixar animation continue to amaze, getting better and better, with scenes that look beyond real.  Soul joins the ranks of Meet Mr. Jordan and Heaven Can Wait in stating something about the thing that makes us us.
