Welcome to the World of 'Elemental' - Upcoming Pixar


Welcome to the World of ‘Elemental’

Elemental News Pete Sohn

Yesterday Pixar unveiled the brand new trailer for the studio’s newest animated feature, Elemental, coming to theaters this summer, June 16th, accompanied by the Up short, “Carl’s Date.”

Elemental follows Ember, a spirited fire denizen of Element City who is reluctant to leave the enclave of Firetown and firmly believes “elements don’t mix.” That is, until an unexpected encounter with water guy Wade, her polar opposite in terms of element and personality, pulls her into the wider world.

Though Pixar’s films have always boasted striking colors and design, the animation on display in Elemental clearly shows how far the studio has pushed the visual envelope. Whether in stills or in motion, the characters of Pixar’s newest immersive world are a treat for the eyes.

This is the second directorial feature film for Peter Sohn after 2015’s The Good Dinosaur. He was part of the story team alongside John Hoberg, Kat Likkel, and Brenda Hsueh, who also were responsible for the screenplay. Elemental features the voice talents of Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie for Ember and Wade, respectively, as well as Ronnie del Carmen, Shila Ommi, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Catherine O’Hara, Mason Wertheimer, and Joe Pera.
