Exclusive Video Interview: Shila Ommi on Voicing Cinder Lumen in ‘Elemental’

Check out more of our video interviews on our YouTube channel.

Pixar’s new film Elemental follows a family of fire elements living in a city that wasn’t built for them. Bernie (Ronnie Del Carmen) and Cinder (Shila Ommi) have traveled from their home in Fireland to try to make a new life for themselves, and their daughter Ember (Leah Lewis) has only ever known Element City. It’s an affirming family story that features both a strong message and a dazzling showcase of exceptional animation.

I had the chance to speak with Ommi about the joy of getting to continue her voice work with this Pixar project. We also checked in about her Apple TV+ series Tehran, which has already filmed its third season, and her directorial debut, Wake Up Sleeping Beauty.

You can watch the video above, and read below for an official summary and where to watch.
