The movie was originally set to release in June but was postponed due to the pandemic. A positive for those looking forward to watching this film is that there is no additional cost to do so; the movie will be included in a Disney+ subscription.
According to Variety, “Unlike Mulan, which released on Disney Plus for an extra $30, Soul will be available to Disney Plus’ 60.5 million subscribers at no extra cost. The streaming service costs $6.99 per month.”
