Disney / Pixar’s ‘Soul’ is Moving to Christmas Day Release on Disney+


Thanksgiving Week just got a lot more grim at the box office as Disney has moved its Pixar movie Soul to Disney+, where it will now be released on December 25. It had been set for a November 20 release in domestic theaters. Disney will not charge its streaming subscribers an extra $29.99 to see Soul, rather the movie will simply become available on the service to its 60 million subscribers, just like the studio did with Artemis Fowl and Hamilton over the summer.

The Soul release date move was expected following the departure of MGM’s No Time to Die from that same November day. However, Disney wasn’t certain that it was moving the film to Disney+. This now leaves Universal and Dreamworks Animation’s Croods: A New Age as the sole Thanksgiving theatrical wide entry on Nov. 25. That animated feature is expected to have a short theatrical window, heading into PVOD by Christmas.

Soul will get a theatrical release in those foreign territories where Disney+ isn’t available. The streaming service is launching in Latin America next month. In those markets where Disney doesn’t have a streaming service, Mulan has made just over $67M during the pandemic.
