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.
It remains to be seen whether Pixar’s Elemental will enjoy any level of success, but as far as movie premises from them go, it feels rather boilerplate — the kind of premise SNL would come up with to parody a Pixar movie. The one they have coming after this, Elio, feels a bit more original.
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.
Why should you buy Turning Red even though you can see it on Disney+? Because the version you can actually own, instead of rent, comes with all sorts of bonus features and extra content you can’t see any other way. The exception are these deleted scenes, which you can see even if you have no Disney+ subscription (something had to be dangled out there to entice people).
Whether you realize it or not, an interesting experiment is currently going on in the home video marketplace: the selling of movies that made their debut not in theaters, but on streaming. In other words, to take something home that you already saw at home. The question is, will people be willing to pay for something they can already see via subscription? Is a hard physical copy important to enough consumers that this sort of thing can be supported? ….Honestly, I hope so.
Reportedly, the last thing Toy Story creator John Lasseter greenit before he left Disney in disgrace was something called “Lightyear.” We’re just now seeing what that is. It’s not another Toy Story sequel, it’s something else entirely…and kind of confusing.
Turning Red is an upcoming Pixar film about a young Chinese-Canadian girl who experience a Puberty like no other. Mei-lee (Rosalie Chiang) was the typical teenage girl. She loves to hang out with her friends and fangirl to boybands. She also experiences pressure because she has the typical strict mom (Sandra Oh) with high expectations. Despite that, she loves social life and she is excited for the new school year. Little did she know, her family has an ancient secret. Her family has a connection with Red Pandas.
Dug Days is coming to Disney Plus this September. It is a Series of Animated shorts that will continue the story of Up. Dug will be the central character of the show but Russell and Carl will still appear as recurring characters.
Pixar’s Luca is about two boys who get to enjoy their summer at the scenic views of Italy. They get to enjoy Italian food like Gelato, Pizza, and Pasta as well. Both of them also get to befriend a girl. The plot description I gave sounds like a plot of a “Slice of life” anime but there is a twist. Luca is a Sea monster pretending to be a human boy. For some yet to be revealed reason, Alberto, the human boy he befriended becomes a monster too.
