This Christmas, Pixar will be releasing their new movie, Soul, on Disney+. This will be their first feature-length production with a Black lead role, played by the illustrious and multi-talented Jamie Foxx. The release had been pushed back from earlier this year due to concerns over COVID-19, which is turn required everyone involved in the project to remain tight-lipped about it, including 12-year-old Bay Area local talent, Cora Champommier, who supplied the voice for the film's young trombone player, Connie.
In the following interview, Cora talks what it was like being called into work at Pixar, her relationship to music and to her character, and what she expects the movie to offer audiences during this pandemic.
I think people, once they watch it, will have a better understanding to explore their passions and don’t set them aside.
