There is nothing about this trailer for Elemental that we’re not loving. Granted, we’re huge Pixar fans and we love the way that they tell a story.
“We all live by one simple rule,” the voice over says, before we hear fire chime in with the rule.
“Elements can not mix,” Fire says.
Now before even watching the trailer or reading the synopsis, that tells us that this is going to be a story about elements that aren’t supposed to be together, want to be together. We’re not complaining – we love a good Romeo & Juliet type story.
Maybe it’s because we’re not really into Shakespeare and decoding his words. Maybe it’s because we love tropes.
The synopsis, “Ember, a quick-witted and fiery woman who’s always stayed close to home in Firetown, 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.”
Cute AF trailer, right? The film will open in theaters on June 16.
