    From the difficulty of watching your kids grow up in the Toy Story movies, to the fate of mankind in Wall-E, Pixar films have playfully tackled quite a range of big topics over the years with their genius animated concepts. None have quite held the lofty ambitions that Pete Docter's Soul (2020) does however, as this is a film literally about the point of being alive.

He's then mistakenly forced to mentor an unborn soul (the depressed '22' who sees no point in living) when his consciousness (and voice) returns to his hospital bed on earth as a cat, and 22's does the same into his original body.
