Joe is a middle-school band teacher whose life hasn't quite gone the way he expected. His true passion is jazz -- and he's good. But when he travels to another realm to help someone find their passion, he soon discovers what it means to have soul.
The tailoring business owned by Joe's family is based on the real-life Advanced European Tailoring shop in Berkeley, California. Pixar animators spent many hours there, taking notes and illustrations to capture everything from the look of the shop to the movements of the workers. They also spoke with the owners of the shop, Zoltan Hajnal and his wife Puje Dorjsure, to learn more about what inspires them to do their job. Hajnal said he and his wife were not paid for their contributions but were proud to be a part of the film. See more »
(at around 49 mins) It makes no sense for Joe to stay outside the bathroom while 22 is taking a shower in his body, since neither would mind the nudity. This was done purely for the sake of the audience. See more »

There are times during the first quarter when you may believe someone's spiked your drink with an hallucinogenic as Disney's innovative way of capturing our entrance and exit to the world is developed but, as you will find, this is a film to get you thinking and, more importantly, thinking about yourself - reflecting so to speak. Delivered with the usual Pixar excellence, if this doesn't make you realise that tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life then rewind, pause and start again, because the message is universally important to all - and that includes you!!!
