Believe it or not, Pixar’s Elemental can now be considered somewhat of a success for the company. It’s proven to have a long tail, remaining in the top ten box office to this very day despite opening soft. The bad marketing made the movie look very generic, but positive word of mouth has overtaken the badly edited ads and given the film a second chance. It’s now earned over $400 million, twice as much as Encanto.
Carl’s date going to be the closest thing we are going to have to an Up sequel at this moment. We don’t know what is Disney’s plan for this Widowed adventurer but he finally moves on from Ellie’s Death. This is the second Mini Spin-off for Up. The first one is Dug Days, Which shows us a slice of the life of Dug the talking dog. You can watch those animated Shorts on Disney Plus. Some fans are theorizing that Carl’s Date and Dug Days are Disney’s attempt to test the waters if there is a demand for a sequel for Up. That movie ended on a positive note and made $735.1 million. Something Disney and Pixar needed right now after the failure of Lightyear and Strange World.
Elemental is the latest offering from Pixar and Disney. They released the teaser for this film last year, but now you can watch the full trailer. In the world of Elemental City, the Earth, Winds, and Waters can coexist peacefully. However, the segregation of flames is necessary since their contact with other elements could be catastrophic. Water extinguishes fire, and fire can evaporate water. In this movie though he will see a budding relationship between a fire and a water.
Elemental is coming to Theaters this 2023. My eyes are feasting from this visually delightful animation. CGI technology had improved immensely because I have visuals of translucent character models.
