The upcoming feature, Elemental, is Pixar’s newest film, comes out on June 16, 2023. It’s a movie surrounding societal expectations, diversity, and immigration through the scope of the core Ancient Greek elements. And it’s already attracting a lot of attention and fanfare. Its newest addition? A two-minute water show that brings the characters from the film to life.

As part of the World of Color – ONE attraction at Disneyland, the ‘Elemental Connection’ debuts as a sensory masterpiece. Fans only have a limited time to catch this event at the Disneyland Resort at Paradise Gardens Park. It incorporates colorful projections onto water to tease film fans and offer an immersive experience.

Sean Bailey adapts animated films to their modern counterparts as part of a larger thematic change at Disney. Thematically, it’s at the heart of a bi-partisan debate between cancel culture and social awareness. The new ‘Elemental’ experience debuts in Disney parks as Bailey goes on record saying, “We want to reflect the world as it exists.”
