Pixar has announced its next feature film, Elemental, coming on June 16, 2023.
Directed by Peter Sohn (The Good Dinosaur, Partly Cloudy) and produced by Denise Ream (The Good Dinosaur, Cars 2), the studio’s 27th film will follow two elemental beings named Ember and Wade, one made of fire, and the other of ice. Sohn said in a statement, “Our story is based on the classic elements — fire, water, land, and air. Some elements mix with each other, and some don’t. What if these elements were alive?”
The two are from a city were all the elements – fire, water, land, and air – live amongst one another. Despite their seemingly opposite compositions, “The fiery young woman and the go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common,” according to Pixar’s brief synopsis.
