    Disney & Pixar unveil new Soul animated prequel short 22 vs. Earth
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    While the Jamie Foxx-led film awaits its turn at the Academy Awards
    on Sunday, Disney and Pixar have unveiled a new animated short that
    serves as a prequel story to the hit 2020 fantasy dramedy Soul 
    entitled 22 vs. Earth exploring the titular character's time in the
    Great Before prior to the events of the film with Tina Fey
    returning to voice.

    "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," Kevin Nolting, 21-year Pixar veteran and short director,
    said in a statement. "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."

    Ever wonder what new soul 22 has against Earth in Disney and Pixar's
    Soul? 22 vs. Earth will explore this as she 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,"
    Nolting said in a statement. "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."

    22 vs. Earth is set to premiere on Disney+ on April 30.
