Last night saw our Secret Screening play out in front of rapt Cineworld crowds. If you've missed the social media buzz, we can tell you that the movie was Disney-Pixar's gorgeously designed new animation Elemental, which hits screens this July.
The movie takes place in Element City where the various elements (earth, fire, water, air) are anthropomorphized and interact with one another. When watery dude Wade (Mamoudou Athie) meets and falls for the fiery Ember (Leah Lewis), it will be the ultimate test as to whether opposites attract.
Here's a small sampling of the reactions from the screening.

Typical Pixar film, you know what you’re going to get, a quality animated film that has great characters, an engaging storyline and a charm to it. Worth a watch! :)— Harry Stanford (@harrystanford98) June 20, 2023
It was so good 🥺 the start as well...😭 #nospoilers but it was there for the Pixar fans 🎈❤️— sophie 💜 (@sophierhi13) June 20, 2023
It was good solid Pixar. A nice story about being the child of immigrants and finding that balance between respecting your ancestry and carving your own path. Thought the animation was beautiful, the way the Fire and Water elements moved & breathed. Ending was a bit cheesy— The Fourth Dimension (@Mike_J_Lord) June 20, 2023
Have to admit at first when I saw it was Elemental I was disappointed. Not really my kind of film, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Not the best Pixar film, but its a good film. Funny and emotional. I'd give it 7/10.— Stuart (@Stuart_Smyth74) June 20, 2023
Of course, we can't tell you what they are – but that's all part of the fun. However, that shouldn't stop you from taking a guess as to what they might be.
