Disney Plus is set to illuminate its content library with the addition of the latest release, “Elemental,” a captivating animated film from the creative minds at Disney and Pixar. Scheduled to be available for streaming starting September 13 at 12:01 a.m. PT (3:01 a.m. ET), the movie brings to life the elemental forces of water, earth, air, and fire, intertwining them in a narrative that promises a unique and enchanting viewing experience.
“Elemental” follows the tale of Ember, a spirited young woman brought to life through the vocal talents of Leah Lewis, known for her role in The CW’s Nancy Drew series. Ember’s journey takes an unexpected turn as she encounters Wade, a character with a watery disposition voiced by Mamoudou Athie, recognized for his role in Jurassic World Dominion. Their unlikely friendship serves as the focal point of the film, challenging Ember’s preconceived notions about the world they inhabit.
Directed by Peter Sohn, whose previous works include “The Good Dinosaur,” “Elemental” ventured into theaters in June, garnering attention with its unique storyline and imaginative animation. The film has earned a Metacritic score of 58, showcasing the diverse and mixed critical reception it has received.
For eager viewers, the streaming availability on Disney Plus presents a convenient option to explore the magical world of “Elemental” from the comfort of their homes. The release will be accessible at the aforementioned time in every country where Disney Plus is available, with the exception of France, Turkey, and Japan, according to information provided by the company.
As the anticipation for “Elemental” builds, it’s important to note a forthcoming change in the pricing structure of Disney Plus subscriptions in the United States. Starting October 12, the ad-free subscription will witness a price increase from $11 to $14 per month. This adjustment aims to ensure a continued high-quality streaming experience for subscribers. Existing subscribers will experience the new pricing at their next billing cycle on or after October 12.
However, Disney Plus users in the U.S. have the option to opt for the ad-supported tier, which will maintain its current pricing at $8 per month. These strategic moves in pricing are part of Disney’s ongoing efforts to adapt to the evolving streaming landscape while providing an array of options to cater to the diverse preferences of its audience.
