“Elemental” director Pete Sohn and producers Pete Docter and Denise Ream were at D23 to present a first look at Pixar’s latest original feature, which takes place in the Elemental City, where creatures earth, air, water and fire coexist. “Some factors come together, and some don’t,” Sohn said. “What if these elements were still alive?” Ethan Anderton described the look as less of a Metropolis and more of a “Wet-tropolis”, and said that the early cartoon scenes the filmmakers screened focused on Ember. You can guess what elemental type she is with a name like Ember, but obviously, it’s not easy to be Fire type in the Elemental City when you’re surrounded by water and plants.
Naturally, Ember (who was designed to look like she was made of fire, unlike her above fire) ends in a cute encounter with Wade, a Water, and this “Romeo & Juliet” style story promises to emphasize that our differences make us unique and that things The opposite really attracts. Leah Lewis (“The Half of It”) voices Ember and Mamoudou Athie (“Jurassic World Dominion”) voices Wade.
After the unfinished animation ran, the filmmakers showed a clip of Ember and Wade dating, taking a walk through a park. Wade tries to impress her by running on the water, sliding and creating a romantic rainbow. D23 viewers also got to see some footage of Ember walking through the streets of the Elemental City. Above her running the subway, water poured down on the pavement like sheets. Ember reached out her hand as if she wanted to touch it, but couldn’t. Water and fire do not mix, so how will this love story unfold? I guess we’ll see next year.
