Elemental is about the different elements of the world: fire, water, land, and air. The story follows Ember and Wade in the city where they live together.

6. Haunted Mansion (July 28)
Haunted Mansion is about Gabbie, a single mom who hires a priest, psychic and tour guide, and historian to help with her newly bought mansion. She wants the place to be exorcised after discovering that ghosts inhabit it. This is different than the original Haunted Mansion movie from 2003 because it features a single women living into the mansion instead of a family. The storyline is also different due to the fact that in the original, they never got any one to help exorcise the home and were surprised by the presence of ghosts.
5. The Creator (September 29)
The Creator is about a post apocalyptic world and how it is in the future when artificial intelligence (AI) is all around us.

3. Wish (November 22)
Wish is about Asha, a young girl who wishes on a star and gets an answer that isn’t exactly what she expected. She never bargained for trouble, but a trouble-making star came down to join her, and that was not what she had in mind.
