But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth.

As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
Soul will hit Disney Plus on Dec. 25.
