According to Variety, "Soul" was to be released in June, but was pushed back to Nov. 20 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"Soul" tells the story about a middle-school band teacher who loves jazz, but an unexpected step sends him to The Great Before, Disney said.
Deadline reported that "Soul" would get a theatrical release in foreign markets where Disney+ isn't available.
Variety reported that customers would not have to pay an additional fee to rent the movie.
