Disney has announced that a new pre-show, inspired by Pixar’s upcoming film, “Elemental”, will debut ahead of Disney California Adventure’s nighttime show, “World of Color – ONE” on June 2, 2023.

“Brilliant projections dance across vast water screens in this two-minute pre-show, bringing the land, air, water and fire residents of Element City to life,” Disney announced. “In this heartfelt story, fire element Ember and water element Wade discover that though the world tells them they can’t coexist, they are more alike than they realize. As whimsical fountains and powerful music fill Paradise Bay, you’ll see that stepping out of your element may help you uncover who you really are, just like Ember and Wade.”

The pre-show, which will be called “Elemental Connection,” will feature the story and characters from Pixar’s upcoming movie, “Elemental”, though an exact runtime has not yet been announced.

Disneyland describes the show as “It takes only a single ripple to make a huge impact. After all, a ripple can generate a wave—and a wave can power an ocean of change. Many Disney and Pixar characters have dared to make waves and change their world for the better. In ‘World of Color – ONE’, their stories take center stage—unfolding amid a breathtaking blend of dancing water and incredible special effects.

Some of the films that Guests will see during the show include “Moana”, “Soul”, and “The Lion King”. Per Disney, “‘World of Color – ONE’ celebrates the rich storytelling legacy begun by Walt Disney a century ago, bringing to spectacular life moments from favorite films including ‘The Lion King’, ‘Moana’, ‘Ratatouille’, ‘Soul’, ‘Star Wars’, ‘The Avengers’ and more. Come experience the first World of Color to feature characters from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Star Wars and more!”
