’22 vs. Earth’ Clip: Tina Fey’s ‘Soul’ Character Recruits an Unstoppable Gang for Disney+ Short Film

This past weekend, Pixar took home another Best Animated Feature award at the Oscars for Soul, the studio’s surprisingly unconventional movie about the forces and inspirations that fuel our passions.

Interview: Pixar’s 22 vs Earth Director Kevin Nolting

Disney and Pixar present 22 vs Earth, a short that serves as a prequel to their latest release, Soul.

’22 vs. Earth’ Director Kevin Nolting Shares the Challenges of Making a ‘Soul’ Prequel [Interview]

What happened before Soul? Before Joe Gardner ended up in the Great Before? Even before Joe (Jamie Foxx) and 22 (Tina Fey) crossed paths, 22 had been around the block a couple times, unable to find her “spark” that would give her a pass to Earth. And by “around the block a few times,” we mean several millennia old — which makes 22 the perfect subject for a Pixar short film that allows longtime Pixar editor Kevin Nolting to make his directorial debut. After working on the edit for Soul, Nolting ...
