Pixar Disney has released the first trailer for its first animated picture with a black lead, Soul, starring Jamie Foxx as a jazz musician who has recently died. The footage above introduces us to Joe Gardner, a middle school teacher living in New York City who has always dreamed about being a professional musician. When he suddenly dies in an accident, his soul is sent to a place called You Seminar, where he will meet a teen spirit named 22 (voiced by Tina Fey) and embark on a journey through the afterlife to get his body back.

The film is directed by Pixar president and Inside Out‘s Pete Docter and has been described as a mix of the latter film as well as Pixar’s 2017 film Coco. The film will also co-star Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Questlove.

Check out the footage above and catch Soul when it hits theaters June 19, 2020.
