During the Studio Showcase panel at the D23 Expo, Pixar’s Pete Docter announced a brand new film, “Elio”.
In the story, 11-year-old dreamer Elio is artistic, creative and an avid indoorsman who finds it hard to fit in. Meanwhile, Mom Olga, who runs a top-secret military project, is working to decode a strange signal from outer space. But it’s Elio who makes contact, gets beamed into space and is subsequently mistaken for an intergalactic Ambassador for Earth.
“Elio” is being directed by Adrian Molina and produced by Mary Alice Drumm.
During the D23 Expo, it was revealed that the voice of the smart and super-confident Olga, America Ferrera, was invited on stage alongside Yonas Kibreab, who lends his voice to Elio.
It was originally revealed that the film would be coming out in Spring 2024, and now Disney has confirmed that the film will be released in theatres on March 1st, 2024.
