Fire and water might be the perfect pair in the trailer for Pixar’s newest movie, “Elemental.” The upcoming feel-good animated feature tells the story of Ember, a girl made of fire who lives in Element City. There, people made of fire, water, air, and land all live together, but fire people are, of course, considered too different from everyone else. But then Ember meets Wade, a man made of water, and everything changes for them as they figure out how their two elements can safely mix. Disney released the full trailer for “Elemental” on March 28, and it teases the adorable romance between the pair as they try to find a way to coexist in a city that’s stacked against them. Pixar also announced more members of the film’s voice cast, including “Schitt’s Creek” star Catherine O’Hara.
Disney and Pixar released the movie’s teaser trailer on Nov. 17 and in it, Ember walks through a crowded bus. It also shows shots of life in Elemental City — earth people blooming at random moments, air people floating to the end of the bus, and water people doing their best to keep from sloshing all over the place. Ember stays incognito in a hoodie as she makes her way through them. But when she drops her headphones, she and Wade reach for them at the same time and a drop of his water creates steam when it touches her flames. The short ends there, teasing the strange and beautiful world of the upcoming new film.
