Disney-Pixar’s latest hit, “Soul”, is getting rave reviews after its debut on Christmas Day.
The animated movie is about a jazz musician that has a near death experience then sets out to find himself.
The lead character’s name is Joe Gardner, played by Jamie Foxx. This is the first time that a black lead has been cast in a Disney-Pixar film.
Foxx said “For me to be able to say, and be proud to say, I’m the first African-American lead in Disney-Pixar, that’s amazing. That feels good.”
