After being cryptically teased almost three months ago, we’ve finally got more info on Pixar’s next next feature film. 

Soul, the film that “will take you on a journey from the streets of New York City to the cosmic realms to discover the answers to life’s most important questions” will star Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey as the leads.

They will be joined by Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Questlove, who are also set to lend their voices to the original animated film. 

Soul is Pete Docter’s fourth directed feature for Pixar, following Monsters, Inc., Up, and Inside Out. 

“I’m directing a film that asks the ultimate question that we’ve all thought about at one time or another: Why am I here? Where did I come from? And what am I here for?” Docter revealed. “But who would make a cartoon about that? Metaphysics? We’re calling it Soul.”

After Docter made the announcement at D23 on Saturday, Fey told expo-goers: “I’m so excited to be onstage with all these people and to be a part of this movie. Wait ’til you hear Jamie Foxx in this movie, guys. It’s really good. I think you’re going to like it. I think it’s real emotional. But also like, there’s nothing better than a Pixar movie, right?”

Soul arrives in theaters on June 19th, 2020.
