Disney's Pixar has revealed that Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey will topline the animation studio's new film, Soul. 

Before Saturday's announcement, very little known about Soul.

Disney had previously only released the tagline:

"Ever wonder where your passion, your dreams and your interests come from? What is it that makes you… YOU? Pixar Animation Studios 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."

As well as Foxx and Fey, Daveed Diggs, Questlove, and Phylicia Rashad will also star in the upcoming flick.

Soul imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Jamie Foxx will play a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at legendary New York jazz club The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm — with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig, per Variety.
