Overnight was the Disney+ premiere of the feature film Soul. Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new feature film introduces Joe Gardner (voice of Jamie Foxx) – a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22 (voice of Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.
 
Overnight was also the Netflix premiere of the feature film We Can Be Heroes. When alien invaders capture Earth’s superheroes, their kids must learn to work together to save their parents — and the planet. It stars YaYa Gosselin, Pedro Pascal, & Priyanka Chopra.
