One of the most anticipated film drops of the year, Disney Pixar’s Soul starts streaming on Disney+ on Christmas Day. Originally intended to be shown in theaters, the film’s release had been delayed multiple times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The computer animated comedy-drama film, directed by Pete Docter, stars the voice of Jamie Foxx as Joe Gardner, a middle school band 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 Great Before, the place where all souls go before being either reincarnated as newborn babies, or transported to the Land of the Dead. Joe must enlist help from the other souls-in-training, like 22, a soul voice by Tina Fey who has spent eons in the You Seminar, in order to get back to the Land of the Living before he dies, while also avoiding a soul counter named Terry, voiced by Rachel House, who tries to bring Joe back to the Great Before.
To celebrate the the feel-good film, celebrity-favored sunglasses brand Privé Revaux has partnered with Disney Pixar to create a capsule collection inspired by the glasses Foxx’s character wears in the film. The all-ages collection features three styles for just $39.95. Each style features blue-light-blocking lenses to protect eyes from harmful blue-light and UV rays emitted from screens, digital devices, artificial lights and the sun. Unlike many blue-light lenses that look yellow, Privé Revaux’s are virtually clear — providing all the protection a movie buff would need for crystal-clear streaming. Each pair also comes with a prescription option.
Foxx co-founded Privé Revaux alongside visionaries Hailee Steinfeld, Ashley Benson, Jeremy Piven and Dave Osokow, star stylists Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn and entrepreneur David Schottenstein ,with the aim to shake up the eyewear market.
“We are thrilled to support our partner and co-founder, Jamie Foxx ,on his latest project, SOUL with Disney and Pixar,” says Schottenstein, Founder and CEO of Privé Revaux. “It is an honor to collaborate with the storytellers that have brought some of the most memorable characters to life through animation, which inspired us to do the same in our medium of eyewear. These collaborative blue-light blocking frames celebrate the film’s themes of mentorship, discovering your passions, and celebrating the little things in life. We hope this new collection will bring joy, comfort, and eye protection to our customers and Disney fans around the world who wear them while streaming the film at home and for years to come.”
