Pixar has always pushed the boundaries of possibility in animation, and their new original feature Elemental promises a visual feast along with a classic fairytale storyline.
In Element City, where residents are made of earth, air, fire, and water, the elements are told the can never mix. When Ember meets Wade, the star-crossed couple challenges these long-held traditions.
Leah Lewis voices Ember Lumen and Mamoudou Athie voices Wade Ripple. Lots of fun fish out of water moments and a Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner scene.
Others lending their voices to the pic hitting theaters on June 16th include Inside Out‘s Oscar-nominated co-director and story writer Ronnie del Carmen, Shila Ommi (Tehran), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek), Mason Wertheimer and Joe Pera, the creator and star of Adult Swim’s soul-soothing comedy series, Joe Pera Talks with You.
Elemental will be accompanied in theaters by the Pixar short “Carl’s Date,” starring Carl (Ed Asner) and Dug (Bob Peterson) from Up.
“Elemental” releases on June 16, 2023.
