Pixar has been a game changer in the world of animation from bringing toys to life to teaching kids about our emotions and the afterlife. In their new film, Elemental, it’s an unlikely friendship between fire and water that lies at the heart of their new creation. In the land of Element City, Air, Water, Fire, Earth all live together in their own little communities. They have to be careful as some don’t mix well together. A young fireball named Ember (Lewis) co-runs her family shop called The Fire Place. Her dad Bernie (del Carmen) is in declining health, and she knows the future of the store falls on her shoulders. The store’s pipes flood leading to fines from the city inspector. He’s a happy and charming water guy named Wade (Athie). It’s not all bad luck for Ember as this begins a new adventure and an unlikely friendship between fire and water that will open her eyes to her true calling in life.
