Today, Disney Pixar announced its 27th film, Elemental, is coming on June 16, 2023 (almost exactly one year after this summer’s Lightyear). Directed by Peter Sohn (The Good Dinosaur and Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) and produced by Denise Ream (The Good Dinosaur and Cars 2), the movie follows “an unlikely pair, Ember and Wade, in a city where fire-, water-, land- and air-residents live together.” In a statement obtained by Variety, Sohn stated that this movie takes inspiration from his childhood home in New York City.

My parents emigrated from Korea in the early 1970s and built a bustling grocery store in the Bronx,” he said in a statement. “We were among many families who ventured to a new land with hopes and dreams — all of us mixing into one big salad bowl of cultures, languages and beautiful little neighborhoods. That’s what led me to Elemental.
