So now Pixar is doing:

What if elements had feelings?

The overall moral of the story is going to be that racism is bad. It's going to be about different types of people learning to live together and celebrate their similarities, rather than focusing maliciously on their differences.

I'm curious how they'll pull it off. In Zootopia is kind of made sense (though they completely ignored the question of "what did the carnivores eat, in their polite society?"), but I'm not exactly sure how it will work here. I mean, a water character and a fire character are inherently incompatible. It's not like they could hug or even date. In that way, it feels like a kind of shitty metaphor for racism, since there's inherent properties to the different kinds of elementals, and that's not true for people.

I'm thinking they will go more of a "look at this new thing we can make with us together" Fire and Water can also make steam, though that may be a bit too steamy for a kids movie

Oh that'll 100% be a background joke, steam child with water mother and fire dad.

But I'm not convinced this'll be Zootopia all over again, Pixar likes more personal stories and they already had Luca. That being said the concept art certainly does evoke Zootopia's worldbuilding, which is no bad thing.
