If there’s one thing we’ve come to know about Pixar, it’s that the studio never misses. Every movie they make is wonderful, and their upcoming film Elemental seems to be no exception. The full trailer just dropped, and we’re already counting down the days until this hits theaters.

Elemental tells the story of the residents of Element City, who are made up of four elements: fire, water, air, and earth. Ember is a fire element who’s been raised her whole life with one simple rule: elements don’t mix. But when she meets Wade, a water element from the city, she learns to question everything she’s been taught—and strikes off to find her own place in the world.
To make this sweet tale even cuter, there appears to be a bit of a love story between Ember and Wade. And since Pixar gave us the opening sequence to Up, the most beautiful, perfect, and devastating love story ever told in five minutes, we know they can do a rom-com—and do it well.
Elemental was announced last year, and Pixar has been dropping updates ever since. We already know that Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie will star, lending their voices to Ember and Wade, respectively. The cast will also include Ronnie del Carmen, Shila Ommi, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Mason Wertheimer, and Joe Pera. The magnificent Catherine O’Hara (Schitt’s Creek) will voice Wade’s mom, Brooke. Obviously, we can’t wait to see her step into another mom role.
Elemental is directed by Peter Sohn, who also directed Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. He has said in interviews that the movie is based on his own experience growing up in New York.
“My parents emigrated from Korea in the early 1970s and built a bustling grocery store in the Bronx,” he told Deadline. “We were among many families who ventured to a new land with hopes and dreams — all of us mixing into one big salad bowl of cultures, languages, and beautiful little neighborhoods. That’s what led me to Elemental.”
Elemental will hit theaters nationwide on June 16.
