Soul

Movie • 2020 • Animation  

Report
Joe Gardner is a middle school teacher with a love for jazz music. After a successful gig at the Half Note Club, he suddenly gets into an accident that separates his soul from his body and is transported to the You Seminar, a center in which souls develop and gain passions before being transported to a newborn child. Joe must enlist help from the other souls-in-training, like 22, a soul who has spent eons in the You Seminar, in order to get back to Earth.

It’s complicated because there is a scene that a character technically gaslights the “villain” but it was just a funny scene that doesn’t cause harm to the villain but actually helps the main character

No, but a grown man's well-meaning mother is quite domineering and tries to control what he does with his life, effectively belittling his dreams. Until a certain point in the movie, he's afraid of asserting himself toward her. When he does, it becomes clear that she was acting that way out of well-founded concern for his longtime well-being. She takes what he's saying to heart, realising that she should've behaved differently, and she decides to support him no matter what, then goes on to do just that.

Not really. A cat's soul leaves his body for a little bit of the movie and is seen heading toward the Great Beyond - but don't worry, he comes back safely to his body and is seen fine and alive and happy later on in the movie! (Copy-pasted from someone else's comment elsewhere.) I believe the cat is a "therapy cat" at a hospital, but that's still kind of like a pet, I think.

After the very very end of the credits a character tells you that the movie is over. It's easy to avoid by not watching until the very very end of the credits.

There are some gags about how the main character can barely fit into his pants. These gags aren't meant to be derogatory to the character, though.

Technically yes. But it's a case of a literal unborn soul in a guy's body, and gets referred to as said guy and with he/him pronouns. However, since the soul occupying it has never been born, they don't have a gender, so pronouns are kind of [shrug emoji]? But it's because they're literally in a body that isn't theirs.

It doesn't appear to bother or distress them in any way, or even to catch the soul's attention.

A bit of a strange question for this movie. Even though his soul is taken out of his body, he ends up surviving. It should also be noted that most of the main characters are black, so it isn't meant to be this trope.

A nonhuman character's voice is mentioned as sounding "like a white woman", and the character admits to talking that way deliberately because "it annoys people."

There’s no explicitly LGBTQ+ characters albeit all the unborn souls are presented as genderless including a main character named 22 that goes by he/him pronouns but is voiced by a cis woman. Admittedly I’m not sure if this doesn’t count in my book, but it’s still interesting

There is a section of the movie where a character appears to be acting strangely/erratically in front of others. Some people are visibly put off by this odd behavior and even call said character out for it. Words like "weirdo" and "crazy" are said.

Maybe you could say that the afterlife is spoiled for persons of certain faiths, since it doesn't look like the souls of the dead are going to a place matching traditional descriptions of Heaven. We can't say for sure, but it looks (and sounds) like they're zapped out of existence when entering what looks like a huge white void, but that MIGHT be a method of "transport" to a conscious afterlife, like a portal. There are no mentions of Heaven, only "The Great Beyond", which isn't described.
