Disney cancels Pixar's Soul theatrical release

Disney also surrenders with one of its most anticipated films of the season: Soul, the return to directing of the (creative) boss of the studios Pixar Pete Docter.
The film will take us where no other film has ever led us: to discover our soul. Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before - a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what's great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.

Soul is the new project of the two-time Academy Award winner Pete Docter (Up, Inside Out) initially scheduled for June, then moved to November 20 and now completely canceled in theaters.

The new date announced is December 25, but only in digital version and only on Disney+, but unlike Mulan which released for an extra $30, Soul will be available at no extra cost.

The film will only hit theaters in certain markets where the Disney+ service is not active, but only late in 2021.

In the US, many movie chains are once again giving up on the complicated period, announcing indefinite closures, while on the other hand the major Hollywood producers are moving forward all their blockbusters for at least a year.
