Disney has released a gorgeous new trailer, along with some colourful character posters, for Pixar's Elemental.
Now confirmed for a theatrical release (outside of Lightyear, most Pixar movies in recent years have been sent straight to Disney+), Elemental promises to transport moviegoers to an extraordinary place called Element City, where a host of elements live and work.
The trailer showcases each element - air, earth, water and fire - and what sets them apart according to Ember, a quick-witted and fiery woman who's always stayed close to home in Firetown. In the movie, she finally ventures out of her comfort zone to explore what's described as a "spectacular world born from the imaginations of Pixar's filmmakers."
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.
Joining the previously announced voice cast including Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie as Ember and Wade, respectively, are Ronnie del Carmen as Ember’s soon-to-be-retired dad, Bernie, Shila Ommi as Ember’s love-seeking mom, Cinder, and Wendi McLendon-Covey as Wade’s stormy and Air-Ball-loving boss, Gale.
Also part of this impressive ensemble are Catherine O'Hara as Wade’s welcoming mom, Brook, Mason Wertheimer as Ember’s admiring earth neighbour, Clod, and Joe Pera as an overgrown city bureaucrat, Fern.
Directed by Peter Sohn, produced by Denise Ream, and executive produced by Pete Docter, Elemental features a screenplay by John Hoberg & Kat Likkel and Brenda Hsueh with a story by Sohn, Hoberg & Likkel and Hsueh. The movie's original score was composed and conducted by Thomas Newman.
Elemental is set to be released in theaters on June 16.
