Set in Element City, where Fire-, Water-, Earth- and Air-residents live together, the original feature film introduces Ember (voice of Leah Lewis), whose friendship with a fun and sappy guy named Wade (voice of Mamoudou Athie) challenges her beliefs about the world they live in.

Directed by Peter Sohn, produced by Denise Ream, p.g.a., and executive produced by Pete Docter, Elemental features a screenplay by John Hoberg & Kat Likkel and Brenda Hsueh with story by Sohn, Hoberg & Likkel and Hsueh.

In Good Chemistry: The Story of Elemental, Pixar director Peter Sohn takes viewers on a humorous personal journey through the inspiration behind Disney and Pixar’s feature film Elemental. Good Chemistry traces his parents’ voyage from Korea to New York, explores his dad’s former grocery shop in the heart of the Bronx, and delves into his choice of a career in animation, rather than the family business.

The documentary is a delightful look at the unexpected influences that led to the making of the comedy-adventure Elemental. Good Chemistry is directed by Tony Kaplan and produced by Sureena Mann.

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee and Emmy Award winner Bob Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, Carl’s Date finds Carl reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a lady friend – but admittedly with no idea how dating works these days. Ever the helpful friend, Dug steps in to calm Carl’s pre-date jitters and offer some tried-and-true tips for making friends – if you’re a dog.

The new short, which opened in front of Elemental in theaters on June 16, joins an existing collection of shorts, Dug Days, that follow the humorous misadventures of the lovable pup with the high-tech collar. Dug Days is currently streaming on Disney+.
