Nine Inch Nails are scoring a Pixar movie

2019 is weird, huh.

There's been plenty of news coming out of Disney's D23 Expo this weekend.

You've got Barry Keoghan and Kit Harington joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Holland doing his best Spider-Man damage control, and that cool-looking Star Wars western TV show all grabbing the headlines.

Something that shouldn't go under the radar, though, is the fact that Nine Inch Nails - one of the greatest acts of all time, for this writer's money - will be providing the score for a new Pixar movie.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have gotten into the soundtrack world big time since supplying the fantastic Social Network score in 2010 - and taking home a deserved Oscar in the process - so this isn't the most unusual news imaginable.

It's still a bit weird, though.

Reznor and Ross are nothing if not prolific, seemingly scoring everything that comes their way in recent times; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Gone Girl, Patriot's Day, The Vietnam War, Bird Box, Mid90s, and the upcoming Watchmen TV series to name but a few.

And now, they turn their hand to wholesome animation. Variety reports that the duo will take on audio duties for Soul, which includes Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey among its voice cast.

As for the premise? Well, it's out there. The movie imagines a world in which everyone on earth comes pre-installed with a soul that has been formed and perfected in a cosmic realm.

The plot finds Foxx's music teacher taking a wrong step into an open sewer and thus stepping into his soul form in the other dimension. Chaos, you'd imagine, ensues.

Soul arrives in cinemas on 19 June, 2020.

As for what Nine Inch Nails going Pixar will sound like, maybe it'll be a bit like this:
