Disney/Pixar are known for the box-office breaking hits, especially in the realm of animation. Well, their upcoming movie, Elemental is expected to follow its predecessors towards box office gold, and we cannot wait as two worlds collide.


Curious to see exactly what to expect? Well, according to, here’s a brief synopsis of the action.

Ember, a quick-witted and fiery woman who’s always stayed close to home in Firetown, finally ventures out of her comfort zone to explore this spectacular world born from the imaginations of Pixar’s filmmakers and specifically crafted for the big-screen experience. Element City is inspired by big cities around the globe and embraces theorized contributions from each elemental community—from giant pine-tree-like buildings and waterfall skyscrapers to a tornado-shaped arena called Cyclone Stadium.

So basically, when fire and water come together, sparks will fly indeed!

The director for the upcoming film is Peter Sohn. Elemental will be produced by Denise Ream. The two reunite for this Romeo & Juliet-esk animated feature after the success of their 2015 Pixar hit, The Good Dinosaur.

“The idea [for the film] started with my parents,” Sohn began as he talked to the audience at last year’s Disney’s D23 event. “As immigrants to the U.S. from Korea in the ’70s, they had no family, nothing. But they managed to create a life in New York. And just like them, many people have left their people and families to a new land, with hopes and dreams, all mixing into one big salad bowl of cultures, languages and neighborhoods.”

Ream continued, describing the film as one that is “about anyone who’s ever made a sacrifice or taken a risk, set it in the hustle and bustle of the city, but with a twist.”

Elemental will hit theaters June 16th! However, to get us all excited and on the hook, Disney/Pixar just dropped their official trailer. Check it out below and make sure to mark you calendar’s as this will be one that you don’t want to  miss!
