Trailer for new Disney Pixar film ‘Elemental’ released

Disney and Pixar have released the official trailer for their new film Elemental.

Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie will voice Ember and Wade in the film. Lewis, a Chinese American actress, made a name for herself when she played Ellie Chu in The Half of It.

The movie is set in a place called Element City, where the elements (air, fire, water and earth) live and work.

Disney provided the following character descriptions in a recent press release:

·         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

According to the press release, the voice cast will also include “Ronnie del Carmen as Ember’s soon-to-be retired dad, Bernie; Shila Ommi as Ember’s love-seeking mom, Cinder; Wendi McLendon-Covey as Wade’s stormy and Air-Ball-loving boss, Gale; Catherine O’Hara as Wade’s welcoming mom, Brook; Mason Wertheimer as Ember’s admiring earth neighbor, Clod; and Joe Pera as an overgrown city bureaucrat, Fern.”

Elemental hits theaters on June 16.
