A Tale of Opposites Attracting

The narrative centers around the burgeoning relationship between Wade Ripple and Ember Lumen, representing Water and Fire, respectively. Director Peter Sohn, in an interview with Collider in November 2022, touched on the unique connection between these two characters, stating:
“That’s something fun because they’re such polar opposites. The Venn diagram of what connects the two of them is universal for all of us, in terms of being vulnerable and seeing each other for the first time. Why they fall in love is that Venn diagram. I don’t wanna spoil anything from the movie, so the best I can say is that it’s a thin window of shared [commonalities] for them.”
