22 VS EARTH

22 vs Earth with Tina Fey is coming to Disney Plus on April 30

Ever wonder what new soul 22 has against Earth in Disney and Pixar’s hit 2020 feature filmSoul”?

A new short from Pixar Animation Studios revisits the skeptical soul long before she ever met Joe Gardner.

Tina Fey is back to The Great Before as the voice of quick-witted and sarcastic soul 22.

Statement from Kevin Nolting about the original short

While making ‘Soul,’ we talked about the why of a new soul not wanting to live on Earth, but it didn’t ultimately belong in that movie. ‘22 vs. Earth’ was a chance to explore some of the unanswered questions we had about why 22 was so cynical. As a fairly cynical person myself, it felt like perfect material.

In the short, 22 defies the rules of The Great Before and refuses to go to Earth, enlisting a gang of five other new souls in her attempt at rebellion. However, as her cohorts’ activities lead to unexpected results, 22’s subversive plot may actually lead to a surprising revelation about the meaning of life.

Kevin Nolting discusses the new souls

I think the new souls make the short so fun—the contrast of their pure innocence and delight with the cynical expectations of 22. The other new souls are what 22 once was before she took another path—purely innocent, blank slates to be guided by the counselors in their mostly uneventful journey to the earth portal. 22 sees an opening in that and attempts to guide them herself into her way of thinking.

Release date

The film debuts on April 30 on Disney Plus.
