‘Elemental’ Gets Digital and Home Media Release
Pixar’s Elemental has had one of the most interesting box-office runs in recent memory.
The film opened to a disappointing $28 million opening weekend and was quickly dubbed a flop, another misfire in Pixar’s recent history.
Despite the slow start, Disney continued to market the film, and then, something amazing happened — the film found its audience.
Six weeks after its initial release, nobody is calling Elemental a flop. The film has now crossed the $400 million barrier.
After an elongated and widely successful box office run, Disney has finally announced when Elemental will be available on home media!
Pixar’s latest classic will hit digital on August 15, followed by physical media releases on September 26. The home media version of Elemental is coming with a TON of bonus features.
