Elemental City is a special place where four different elements—fire, earth, air and water—live together but never mix. A new Disney and Pixar movie called ‘Elemental’ is coming soon, which will explore how this works. It’s based on the true story of Peter Sohn, its director. It tells us how differences can be accepted in an inspiring way. Peter was inspired by his own experience as an immigrant to make this movie happen. So get ready for ‘Elemental’, folks!
Sohn was inspired to make the movie Elemental because of his own experience as a child of Korean immigrants living in New York City. Even though his parents struggled with speaking English, they managed to open a shop and build relationships with their customers from all over the world. Sohn said, “Everyone had different backgrounds and cultures that were mixing together and creating something beautiful.”
The movie Elemental follows two characters who are from different backgrounds—Wade Ripple and Ember Lumen—but despite their differences, they fall in love. To make sure that Ember’s family business succeeds, they have to work together. Taking inspiration from the culture he grew up in, Sohn added something special to the story.
When I was growing up, my grandma said something to me and it stuck with me. She said ‘Marry Korean’. That’s why we saw a bit of that in the movie. This idea carries with it a lot of conflicts between different cultures, but then we thought – what if opposite forces can attract each other? Like fire and water, for instance. Then this became the focus of the film and after that, everything else – like characters and problems they face – built on top of that idea.
We’ve heard about the upcoming Pixar film titled ‘Elemental’ – let’s take a look at what we know about this movie so far, including its release date and plot details.
Get Ready for an Emotional Ride
Going to school can be scary for children and teens, especially when it is a new school. It is understandable that kids feel anxious about leaving home and meeting a lot of unknown faces. It’s also normal for them to worry about how they should act in order to fit in with their peers. However, it certainly helps if parents make an effort to boost their child’s confidence and equip them with the right skillset before starting classes.
Ember, a fire character from the story, was asked to get married to another fire too. Just like the director of this story, who had a real-life experience of marrying someone non-Korean. The director imagined different elements from the periodic table as their own apartments that lived besides each other despite their differences. To mix reality and fiction he also wrote about mixing fire (Ember) and water (Wade) in his story.
Disney and Pixar have explored incredibly unique concepts before, like their 2015 animated movie Inside Out that showed colorful and funny stories about someone’s emotions. The two animation companies have also made movies that make us cry, such as Up from 2009 which was one of the greatest animated films ever made! To make things even more fun for everyone who visits the cinema to watch their upcoming film called Elemental there will be a special emotional short shown before it starts – double the treat!
Lewis and Athie are in the voice cast, along with Ronnie del Carmen, Shila Ommi, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Catherine O’Hara, Mason Wertheimer ,and Joe Pera. Pixar and Disney’s movie Elemental will be released on June 16th. Be sure to have your tissues ready as it might be an emotional ride!
