Pixar answered “what if toys have feelings?” with Toy Story, “what if robots have feelings?” with Wall-E, and “what if feelings have feelings?” with Inside Out. Now, it’s time to experiment with “what if the elements have feelings?”.
Pixar officially unveiled new details of their next theatrical release, Elemental.
Drawing inspiration from his own childhood in New York, Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur”) directs Pixar’s 27th feature film which will follow the fiery Ember and the go-with-the-flow Wade, who fall in love – the catch? – well, they can’t touch each other.
Leah Lewis (“Nancy Drew”, “How to Deter a Robber” ) and Emmy-nominee Mamoudou Athie (“Cake”, “The Get Down”) have been confirmed to be voicing the main duo.
The film will draw inspiration from the director, Peter Sohn’s (“The Good Dinosaur”) childhood in New York. The style of the film is reported to be a mixture between Inside Out and Zootopia.
Elemental will be released in theatres on June 16th, 2023.
