Disappointing News for Pixar’s New Film Elemental

Disappointing News for Pixar’s New Film Elemental

Elemental, Pixar’s latest film, just had its opening weekend. Unfortunately, this disappointing news does not bode well for the film.

After waves and waves of live-action remakes, including the most recent addition to splash onto the scenes, The Little Mermaid, many Disney fans embrace the opportunity to enjoy all-new stories from The Walt Disney Company. Now, fans can look forward to such a story from Disney and Pixar!

The new feature-length animated film Elemental has imaginations running wild. This is in part because Elemental takes place in a world devoid of humanity, much like Cars.

In Element City, the various fire, water, land, and air residents are made entirely from their own elements. They generally coexist parallel to one another. However, when firey Ember and a splashing fellow called Wade come together, their journey helps them discover all they have in common.

Release Date and Opening Weekend Numbers

Elemental just debuted in theaters across the country on Friday, June 16. With the live-action The Little Mermaid having a fantastic opening weekend at the end of May, we were hoping for the same for Elemental.

Unfortunately, that is not the case. The film brought in $29.2 million in domestic sales this past weekend. In comparison, The Flash brought in $25 million more than Elemental.

This is a major flop in the world of movies AND Pixar. This is actually the worst performing opening weekend in Pixar history since the release of the original Toy Story in 1995 (which is, ironically, Pixar’s first movie).

This is incredibly disappointing because the projections and reviews looked fantastic. It really looks like a great movie, and it’s a shame it was snubbed this weekend.

We did not see Elemental this past weekend, but saw it today with our grandkids and thought it was fantastic. My grandson give it a 10-1/2 out of 10 and my granddaughter gave it 5 out of 5! I honestly think it is one of my favorite Pixar movies!
