Pixar is about to unleash its newest animated family film Elemental. Here's all you need to know about this new adventure and where to watch it!
Directed by Peter Sohn with a screenplay by John Hoberg, Kat Likkel, and Brenda Hsueh, Elemental takes place in a city where all the residents are representatives of the classic four elements: fire, water, earth, and air. While they may mingle together, the elements are usually bound to stick to "their own kind."
That changes when hot-tempered fire element Ember meets the laid-back water element Wade. The pair soon fall in love but face the challenge of their respective families against this union. They need to find a way to prove elements can indeed mix together.
The synopsis for Elemental reads: "In a city where fire, water, earth, and air residents live together, a fiery young woman and a go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common."
Who stars in Elemental?
Leah Lewis (Nancy Drew) plays Ember, with Mamodou Athie as Wade. Ronnie De Carmen and Shila Ommi play Ember's parents, who are biased against non-fire elementals. Mason Werheimer is Clod, their neighbor with a crush on Ember, while Wendi McLendon-Covey is Gale, an air elemental. Emmy-award winner Catherine O'Hara plays Wade's mom, with numerous other voice actors supplying voices for the residents of the city.
When does Elemental open?
After its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie opens on June 16, 2023. Notably, several theaters will have it in 3-D to enhance its visual effects, with Pixar hoping to once more score another box office hit the family can enjoy.
Pixar's Elemental will be exclusive to theaters when it arrives on Friday, June 16. This means we'll have to wait somewhere between 60 and 90 days before it comes to the Disney+ streaming service.
