Walt Disney Co. (DIS) on Thursday said "Soul," the latest movie from Pixar Animation Studios, will debut exclusively on the streaming Disney+ on Dec. 25. The movie will be released in theaters internationally, with dates to be announced. "We are thrilled to share Pixar's spectacular and moving 'Soul' with audiences direct to Disney+ in December," Disney Chief Executive Bob Chapek said in a statement. The movie stars the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Angela Bassett, and Daveed Diggs. "Soul" is expected to give Disney a big boost, as "Hamilton" did earlier this year, as it fights for viewers during the pandemic with Apple Inc. (AAPL), Netflix Inc. (NFLX), Comcast Corp. (CMCSA), AT&T Inc. (T), and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN).
