SOUL: Pixar Announces 22 VS. EARTH Short Coming To Disney+ Later This Month

SOUL: Pixar Announces 22 VS. EARTH Short Coming To Disney+ Later This Month

Soul hit Disney+ on Christmas Day, and was a very special movie. Now, Pixar has announced that a new short film, 22 vs. Earth, will explore 22's (Tina Fey) history before she met Jamie Foxx's Joe Gardner!

Did you ever wonder what new soul 22 had against Earth in Soul? Well, a new short from Pixar Animation Studios promises to revisit the skeptical spirit long before she ever met Joe Gardner.

Debuting on Disney+ on April 30, 22 vs. Earth will see Tina Fey returen to The Great Before as the voice of quick-witted and sarcastic 22. Set before the events of Soul, the original short is directed by 21-year Pixar veteran Kevin Nolting.

"While making 'Soul,' we talked about the why of a new soul not wanting to live on Earth, but it didn’t ultimately belong in that movie," he says. "'22 vs. Earth' was a chance to explore some of the unanswered questions we had about why 22 was so cynical. As a fairly cynical person myself, it felt like perfect material."

In the short, 22 defies the rules of The Great Before and refuses to go to Earth, enlisting a gang of five other new souls in her attempt at rebellion. However, as her cohorts' activities lead to unexpected results, 22’s subversive plot may actually lead to a surprising revelation about the meaning of life.

"I think the new souls make the short so fun - the contrast of their pure innocence and delight with the cynical expectations of 22," adds Nolting. "The other new souls are what 22 once was before she took another path—purely innocent, blank slates to be guided by the counselors in their mostly uneventful journey to the earth portal. 22 sees an opening in that and attempts to guide them herself into her way of thinking."

A first look image has been shared by Pixar, and you can expect a trailer to follow shortly.
