Soul Review: Racism & Disney – This video is an antiracist review of the Disney & Pixar movie, Soul, for antiracist parents and teachers. As a follow up in our Antiracist Media Literacy Analysis series, the host of The Antiracism Academy, Brandee Blocker Anderson, argues that “Disney hates Black People” and gives an antiracist review of the Disney & Pixar movie Soul, which was released on Disney Plus in December 2020. This Pixar Soul review contains spoilers, so please be warned if you have not seen Pixar’ Soul. Watch the Pixar Soul Trailer, and you’ll have spent the appropriate amount of time watching this movie.
If you’re committed to antiracist parenting and antiracist education, then Soul is a great movie for unpacking and dissecting anti-Blackness in children’s content. Jamie Foxx, Soul’s leading man, has his body taken over by Tina Fey, like the character in the movie Get Out. Like in the Princess in the Frog, Jamie Foxx’s character does not appear in his human form for a good portion of the film, and when he does Tina Fey plays his character, while he plays a cat. This movie highlights examples of Disney racism in movies, Disney racist moments, Pixar racism, and Pixar racist storytelling in Soul. The Pixar Soul ending leaves much to be desired, and the film utterly lacks Soul.
