Pixar unveiled concept art and the title treatment for their 27th feature film, ELEMENTAL coming to movie theaters on June 16, 2023. The characters are based on the four elements - fire, water, land and air.
Pixar Animation Studios revealed details about the 2023 summer release directed by Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Partly Cloudy” short). The film journeys alongside an unlikely pair, Ember and Wade, in a city where fire-, water-, land- and air-residents live together. The fiery young woman and the go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common.
The press releasae states the original story is inspired by the director's childhood in New York.
“My parents emigrated from Korea in the early 1970s and built a bustling grocery store in the Bronx,” said the director. “We were among many families who ventured to a new land with hopes and dreams—all of us mixing into one big salad bowl of cultures, languages and beautiful little neighborhoods. That’s what led me to ‘Elemental. Our story is based on the classic elements—fire, water, land and air,” Sohn continued. “Some elements mix with each other, and some don’t. What if these elements were alive?”
