Disney+ Sets Pixar’s ‘Elemental’ Premiere Date: Magical Moments Await!

Next week, Disney+ subscribers can begin streaming the animated adventure “Elemental” by Pixar.

“Elemental” will be available on Disney+ worldwide on September 13, 89 days after its theatrical debut. Alongside the streaming premiere of “Elemental,” Disney+ will release the making-of documentary “Good Chemistry: The Story of Elemental” and the Pixar Animation Studios short “Carl’s Date,” which features the fan-favorite talking dog Dug from the 2009 film “Up.”

At the box office, “Elemental” faltered out of the gate with the worst opening weekend in Pixar’s history — before rebounding over the subsequent theatrical run. According to Box Office Mojo, the film earned $153.6 million domestically and $480 million internationally in 11 weeks.

“Elemental” is situated in Element City, where residents of Fire, Water, Earth, and Air coexist. The feature film introduces Ember (voiced by Leah Lewis), whose companionship with a lovable and sentimental guy named Wade (Mamoudou Athie) challenges her worldview. “Elemental” is directed by Peter Sohn, produced by Denise Ream, and executive-produced by Pete Docter. John Hoberg & Kat Likkel and Brenda Hsueh wrote the screenplay, and Sohn, Hoberg & Kat Likkel, and Hsueh wrote the story.

In “Good Chemistry: The Story of Elemental,” director Sohn traces his parents’ journey from Korea to New York, investigates his father’s former bodega in the center of the Bronx, and delves into his decision to pursue a career in animation rather than joining the family business.

“Carl’s Date” depicts Carl Fredricksen (the older protagonist of “Up”) reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a female acquaintance, despite having no idea how modern dating works. His ever-helpful canine companion Dug steps in to calm Carl’s pre-date nerves and provide some tried-and-true advice for making friends… if you’re a dog. The new short that debuted before “Elemental” in theaters was written and directed by Bob Peterson, and produced by Kim Collins.
