Pixar Animation Studios has revealed the details for its 27th feature film, Elemental.
Directed by Peter Sohn (Partly Cloudy, The Good Dinosaur), the brand-new animated film from Disney and Pixar follows the journey of two unlikely friends, Ember and Wave, from an elemental city where land, air, fire, and water residents live together. The pair will embark on an eye-opening journey of discovery and learn that they have more in common than they initially thought.
Sohn’s childhood in New York inspired the film. The director is the child of Korean immigrants who built a successful grocery store in the Bronx, a neighborhood full of families from all walks of life.
“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.”Director Peter Sohn
Elemental is to release on June 16, 2023, but you can check out the first look concept of the animated film below.
