A grumpy soul
22 is one of the heroines of the animated Soul from Disney Pixar Studios. She is a soul waiting in the zone between Earth and the afterlife, where young souls are trained by a kind of coach who helps them find their spark, preparing them to integrate a body on Earth. But 22 has been in this area for centuries, even millennia, and has had many famous coaches who have all failed in their task, as she does not wish to leave this place she knows well and go to Earth. That’s when Joe Gardner arrives, a man who has just died when he was finally going to get what he had always dreamed of, playing in a jazz band with his idol. He is made a coach and given 22. The two souls then see an opportunity to help each other, get the spark for 22 but use it to return to Earth where it belongs. But things don’t go as planned and it’s 22 who ends up in Joe’s body and Joe in the body of a cat.
