The Walt Disney Studios Press Release
Check out a brand-new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental,” an all-new original feature film that transports 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 “Elemental,” which opens in theaters on June 16, she 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.
The posters featuring the following characters:
√ Ember – a clever 20-something fire woman with a great sense of humor who loves her family but can be hot-headed at times.
√ Wade – an observant, empathetic, 20-something water guy who is not afraid to show his emotions – in fact, his emotions are hard to miss.
√ Clod – a young, street-smart earth kid with a gentle heart who lives in Firetown and tends to show up whenever Ember is around.
√ Gale – an air element with a big personality, a lot of bluster and a fluffy pink complexion who is a serious superfan of an Air Ball team called the Windbreakers.
