Based on Terry Pratchett's Novel. On Discworld (a world carried by four elephants standing on a huge turtle in space), a small girl, Susan Sto Helit, has got a major problem. Her grandfather is Death, who wants to forget that he has just "processed" his adopted daughter and her husband, who was Susan's mother and father, as this is causing him great grief, and Death is a person that can remember everything, much to his chagrin. Susan finds herself pressed into taking over Death's "duty", but finds that she is falling in love with an elf/human, Imp, who is slowly being taken over by a kind of "musical" force that is forcing Imp and his friends to play rock music to the Discworld. The rock music is proving to be a great success, but iit has plans for Imp and everybody wanting to play it, and it is up to Susan, the head of the wizards, the Archchancellor and Death (that is, if he can be found and made to remember who and what he is.) to stop it before it conquers the entire Discworld.Written by

It is said that no movie may ever surpass the book it was adapted from. It's wrong. Although it is completely incorrect to say that Soul Music, the animated film (or series, depends on how you watch it. :)) is better than the book, because they are two completely different kinds of media, Soul Music managed to capture a deep essense in the book and give it life. The result - a movie filled with humor and fun, with the sort of fiction you can only bring to life with animation. If you see the movie after reading the book, unlike with other book-based movies, you will most certainly not be disappointed, because since Pratchett himself helped direct the movie, he managed to recreate the Discworld down to the tiniest detail just the same way he did in the books.
