Toy Story 4 hits theaters this week, and box office predictions suggest that it’s going to be one of the biggest movies in the studio’s history. But while anticipation for this sequel is high, the studio also continues to make original movies.

News of this latest Pixar movie was revealed via Twitter alongside a logo and the release date of June 19, 2020. The tweet also states that Soul “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.” Check it out below.
