Elemental was released in cinemas on June 16th 2023. But like most films, no sooner have they premiered and then it's on to a streaming service!
So if you loved it or, more importantly your kids loved it, then you're probably wondering where you can watch it now!
I have good and bad news, sadly Elemental will not be appearing on Netflix anytime soon.
However, the good news is that the animated adventure comedy will be available to stream on Disney+.
So if you can't wait to watch for your favourite Fire, Water, Air and Earth elements from the comfort of your home, you're in luck.
As of September 13th 2023, you can watch Elementals on Disney+.
If you're not already a Disney+ subscriber, now is the perfect time to sign up.
So mark your calendars now and get ready to see the elements in action!

Watch Elemental for Free?
I would not advise anyone to use illegal streams. Instead, you can sign up for Disney+ for a small initial fee and then cancel before you are charged for the month following.
This will give you access to Elemental and all the other great content that Disney+ has to offer.
Also keep an eye out for the occasional free day or weekend where you can essentially try before you buy.
What is Elemental About?
In Elemental, the fiery family of Bernie, Cinder Lumen, and their daughter Ember navigate the complexities of living in Element City, where they face discrimination for being fire elements.
After Bernie establishes their convenience store called the Fireplace, complete with a Blue Flame symbolising their traditions, Ember finds herself thrust into adulthood.
When Ember's fiery temper causes a water leak that puts the family business at risk, she teams up with Wade Ripple, a water element and city inspector, to tackle a city-wide plumbing problem.
Tasked by Gale Cumulus, the air element who oversees city regulations, the duo must fix a leak in the city's canals before the Fireplace can be spared from closure.

Box Office Reception
Despite the usual marketing fanfare that accompanies a brand new Pixar movie, Elementals had a very slow start at the cinema.
It was released alongside The Flash and The Blackening and only earned $29.5 million in its opening weekend. That was the second lowest three-day opening weekend for a Pixar movie.
However, word of mouth is a powerful thing and even though the first few weeks were reasonable, Elemental was in real danger of not even covering its production cost of $200 million.
And then came August and an unprecedented box office comeback worthy of Rocky!
Gaining in momentum and resonating more with international audiences, Elemental generated over $480 million at the box office worldwide. Another winner for Pixar and Disney.
More Disney+ Movies?
Disney Plus has an impressive lineup of original content, along with brilliant Disney movies, you'll also get access to the Pixar catalogue (Toy Story, The Incredibles, Cars and UP) along with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Guardians of the Galaxy, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision etc…) and not forgetting all the Star Wars movies and series.
Subscribers outside the U.S. also benefit from content which is normally only seen on HULU. Recently the new Justified series, Justified City Primeval dropped on Disney+ for non-US viewers. Arguably making the streaming service a better deal for those not in the States.
They have something for everyone in the family! If you're not already a Disney+ subscriber, now is the perfect time to sign up.
You can cancel anytime so there's no risk, and you'll be able to watch Elemental!
