Watch the First Official Trailer for Pixar's 'Elemental'

Pixar has released the official trailer for its latest film titled Elemental. Described as a romantic drama, the movie follows a fire element named Ember and a water element named Wade who aren't able to touch each other but find they have more in common than they were led to believe.

In Element City, elements include water, fire, land, and air. Fire beings in particular live away from the others as Ember is seen treading with caution in public to avoid accidentally setting strangers on fire. The trailer promises a captivating visual spectacle, previewing a unique animation style that diverges from that of previous Pixar films.

The fiery Ember Lumen is voiced by Leah Lewis while the "go-with-the-flow" Wade Ripple is voiced by Mamoudou Athie. Other cast members include Ronnie del Carmen, Shila Ommi, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Catherine O'Hara, Mason Wertheimer, and Joe Pera.

Below is the official synopsis:

Check out a brand-new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Elemental, an all-new original feature film that transports moviegoers to an extraordinary place called Element City, where a host of elements live and work. The trailer showcases each element—air, earth, water and fire—and what sets them apart according to Ember, a quick-witted and fiery woman who’s always stayed close to home in Firetown. In Elemental, which opens in theaters on June 16, she 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.

Making his debut as director is Peter Sohn, who's previously worked at Pixar's art department for films such as The Incredibles and Finding Nemo. Joining him is Peter Doctor, the writer for Inside Out, Soul, and Wall-E, as executive producer and Brenda Hsueh from How I Met Your Mother and Truth Be Told as one of the writers.

Elemental is set to premiere in theaters on June 16. Pixar has revealed that it will be showing a short film from the Up universe titled "Carl's Date" exclusively in theaters before the film. Catch the official trailer above.
