Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony…
Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
Only the Avatar, the master of all four elements, could stop them.
But when the world needed him most, he vanished.
But when the world needed him the most, he was bought by Disney
Literally the first thing I thought about
It's funny seeing Disney avoid saying this is coming to theaters even though they already announced this date as a theatrical release
To be fair, they're kind of doing that to **Strange World** as well.
Also, Pixar has **Win or Lose** for Disney+ in autumn 2023, so this might not go straight to Disney+.
Win or Lose was annouced as a series, though. Naturally that wouldn't go to cinemas anyway, so I'm not expecting both of them on D+, but maybe one of them. They seem smart enough to not shove everything into two months, so perhaps Elementals gets a day and date if nothing moves from that packed summer
Yes, it's a TV series, but keep in mind that Pixar finally has its own original Disney+ material this time, so it wouldn't really make sense for **Elemental** to completely skip cinema release.
And I wouldn't be surprised if **Strange World** gets a cinema exclusive release with unspecified window. I mean, the fact that it's a sci-fi/fantasy adventure film puts the whole thing in a pretty good financial spot. If not, I'm expecting a cinema/Disney+ Premier Access simultaneous release at the very least.
so June now has Spiderverse, Transformers, Flash, Indiana Jones, illumination's Migration and now this. Then there will be little mermaid from May as well. All of these movies are going to loose millions bcoz of this unnecessary competition
Not to mention that July has Madame Web, Mission Impossible 7, Oppenheimer, Barbie, and Captain Marvel 2. In August they have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, The Meg 2, an untitled Disney live-action (probably Snow White) and Blue Beetle.
Ain’t nobody worried about madame web.
Damn, next summer is gonna be one special treat for us!
Thank god for AMC A-List
Wow that is a big lineup. A lot of the movies are competing against each other. I would move release dates around with some films.
Snow White probably isn’t coming August 2023. It would be better fit for a November/December 2023 release or a March 2024 release.
Some of them will surely move
Am I the only one who’s actually happy to see this packed of a summer slate again?
Spider verse will do well, maybe Little Mermaid too. Everything else will suffer I think.
I can see Jones, spiderverse, and elemental doing well. Flash could go either way at this point, depend on word of mouth, can’t see transformers doing too hot though
Transformers you say?
Yeah, a continuation from Bumblebee.
That actually wasn’t too bad.
Probably this will be a D+ release so it's a different kind of competition.
Isn’t that like that one flash game everyone played as a kid?
What if water had feelings
That’s “What if The Rock had feelings “
Alright. You got me lol.
That’s from WDAS.
I want to see more. Pixar movies when announced you only have a sentence to go off of so you never know. They end up being great but still
And based on that still frame, this is a humanless fantasy film, so that alone warrants some form of proper cinema release already.
Disney’s 2023 looks very strong;
Elemental, Ant-Man 3, Haunted Mansion, Guardians 3, The Little Mermaid, Indiana Jones 5, Captain Marvel 2 & Rogue Squadron (If it actually goes ahead), plus there’s an unannounced Disney Live-Action, Animated & Marvel film
The November MCU movie is probably Blade
I think so too, I’ve also seen people speculate the Live-Action is The Lion King prequel that’s been in development for a while
I think that’s 2024. August 2023 will be Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, I’m guessing.
That would be too soon for Snow White imo. I think Snow White comes March 22, 2024.
Maybe a giant like Beauty and the Beast?
It very well could! Although I’d think they wouldn’t release two Princess led live-action remakes so close together, as the Little Mermaid will be big. I’m sure they’ll announce some dates soon
Lion King prequel? Don’t we already have one of those?
Unsure, this one’s being directed by Barry Jenkins
>The Lion King prequel
The last we heard it was going to be a Godfather 2-style movie focusing on Mufasa pre-Lion King and Simba post-Lion King
Surely that would be animated, though?
Sounds to me like a good way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Walt Disney Studios.
That’s Osmosis Jones
Okay, Pixar. You’ve caught my interest. 😁
P.S. Before anyone says that Peter Sohn is responsible for **The Good Dinosaur**, that was a film in which he was brought in to replace Bob Peterson because the production was going nowhere. This one, on the other hand, is his idea from the start.
This would satisfy my itch for a Fireboy and Watergirl game like movie
It’s a Fireboy and Watergirl movie?
If they don’t use Bomba Estereo’s song “Agua” for this movie it will be a missed opportunity lol (the song starts with the 4 elements being named)
This looks really interesting
Yup. Pixar is going back to humanless fantasy film here. 😁
As interesting as “Soul” was, I’d rather see something from Pixar with the rewatchability of Incredibles or Toy Story. Hope this is it.
Literally everyone here is likely to be elementals, so I think that alone gives the film an advantage when it comes to rewatchability - and now that I think of it, I think all 3 direct-to-Disney+ Pixar films might've had some issues when it comes to rewatchability and/or target audience.
I don’t think Luca would have had any issues with rewatchability.
Well, it’s a very slow slice-of-life film, so I assumed that might’ve hindered its rewatchability. :P
What if elements had feelings
Should've been called Elementary.
Prediction - the voice actors are Channing Tatum and Zendaya.
How about Robert Downey Jr. and Karen Gillan? 😜
