Be the person you were born to be. 

Pixar unveiled the first trailer for its forthcoming animated existential adventure feature titled Soul. 

The film follows a middle school music teacher who dreams of being a jazz performer, but when he finally gets the gig of a lifetime, an accident sends his soul to the You Seminar, a celestial workshop that creates souls and gives them personalities before sending them off to human bodies.

Voicing the lead character is Jamie Foxx. He’s joined by Questlove, Phylicia Rashad, and Daveed Diggs.

“We only have a short time on this planet,” Foxx’s character says in the new trailer. “You want to become the person you were born to be. Don’t waste your time on all the junk of life. Spend your precious hours doing what will bring out the real you, the brilliant passionate you that’s willing to contribute something meaningful to this world.”

Soul hits theaters June 19, 2020.
