Elemental | Official Trailer

Ember and Wade are a classic “opposites-attract” couple, and it seems apparent that the film will lean into its own premise very very hard, but I’m really hoping for something more exciting from Pixar! It seems apparent that fire is the only element that can actively harm more than its opposite element, I wonder what kind of story this is trying to tell?

Sure, this trailer has romantic-comedy written all over it, but gosh, something about this feels weird to me! The animation is slick, and I’m sure the final result will be a cute, feel-good family film about accepting differences and being true to yourself, but are these jokes actually funny?


Elemental will be in theaters on June 16.
