FUTURE’S SO BRIGHT — In Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental,” fiery young woman Ember (voice of Leah Lewis) lives with her immigrant parents in Firetown—a borough of Element City, where fire-, water-, land- and air-residents live together. Directed by Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Party Cloudy” short) and produced by Denise Ream (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Cars 2”), Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental” releases on June 16, 2023. © 2023 Disney/Pixar.

Language

The closest we get to a curse word in Elemental is a play on words where a character says, “get off your lazy ash.”

Outside of that, Elemental’s language is pretty clean.

Your kids will hear unkind words such as:

  • stupid
  • jerk
  • on my gosh
  • dang
  • what the – (unfinished)

ELEMENTAL, Disney and Pixar’s all-new, original feature film releasing June 16, 2023, features the voices of Leah Lewis and Mamoudou Athie as Ember and Wade, respectively. In a city where fire-, water-, land-, and air-residents live together, this fiery young woman and go-with-the-flow guy are about to discover something elemental: how much they actually have in common. “Elemental” is directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Denise Ream. © 2022 Disney/Pixar.

Age Rating of Elemental: Is It Safe For Teens When It Comes To Sex, Romance, and Nudity?

This is Pixar’s first rom-com, so there is some age-appropriate romance going on:

Hand holding, kissing, dancing, and professions of love (‘I love you” is stated in a romantic way). There is a reference to “hanky panky.”

There is a same-sex couple on the screen briefly. It’s a quick moment and not super obvious as they are elements.

But there are no sex scenes or nudity in Elemental (unless you want to count the fact that the elements do not wear pants, but that’s similar to saying Donald Duck is naked… which we don’t say.)

SUPERFAN — In Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental,” fire-woman Ember (voice of Leah Lewis) and water-guy Wade (voice of Mamoudou Athie) track down air-resident and superfan Gale (voice of Wendi McLendon-Covey) at Cyclone Stadium where the crowd cheers for their home Air Ball team, the Cropdusters. Directed by Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Party Cloudy” short) and produced by Denise Ream (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Cars 2”), Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental” releases on June 16, 2023. © 2023 Disney/Pixar.

Violence and Gore: Is Elemental Too Scary For Kids Under 6?

Nothing really violent or perilous happens in the movie.

Gore is non-existent in Elemental, so no worries there.

It’s a very Pixar-esque movie on the violence front.

Is Elemental Ok For Kids: Mature Topics

Did we mention it’s very Pixar-esque? Same here when it comes to mature topics.

Aging parents, loss, grief, death, and complicated family relationships all play out on screen.

There are no alcohol or drug scenes in Elemental.

LIGHTHEARTED FUN — In Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental,” go-with-the-flow guy Wade (Mamoudou Athie) ushers fiery young woman Ember (voice of Leah Lewis) out of her comfort zone to experience Elemental City like never before. Directed by Peter Sohn (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Party Cloudy” short) and produced by Denise Ream (“The Good Dinosaur,” “Cars 2”), Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental” releases on June 16, 2023. © 2023 Disney/Pixar.

Parents Guide: Is Elemental Appropriate For Kids Under 6?

We think Elemental is ok for most kids ages 4 and up.

It’s a little over 1 hour and 40 minutes long, which may make it a bit harder to keep the youngest Pixar fans in their seats.

But the sweet story is sure to be a winner and is kid-friendly for pretty much the whole family!

Thanks for the info on 'same-sex couple'. Though as adults we understand whatever a person's personal preferences are, my kids don't and I would prefer to know in advance so that I'm able to be prepared and explain as needed.

Why is the information about there being a "same-sex couple" shared like it's a warning? In my opinion, it should be highlighted as a positive for diversity and representation.

Apologies if it comes off that way. I try to share what is shown in a non-judgemental, non-opinioned way. I prefer providing the content info vs providing commentary as the community that reads these posts are varied. (FWIW, I absolutely do celebrate the diversity and personally love seeing the additions to all movies.) I'll attempt to re-word it so it doesn't sound like a "warning" as that is not my intent, more "just the facts" this is what is in the movie type information. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
