Starring: Yonas Kibreab, America Ferrera, Jameela Jamil, Brad Garret
Pixar animated sci-fi adventure directed by Adrian Molina. Elio (2024) follows Elio Solis (Yonas Kibreab), a young underdog with an active imagination who finds himself inadvertently beamed up to the Communiverse, an interplanetary organization with representatives from galaxies far and wide. Mistakenly identified as Earth’s ambassador to the rest of the universe, and completely unprepared for that kind of pressure, Elio must form new bonds with eccentric alien lifeforms, survive a series of formidable trials and somehow discover who he is truly meant to be.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Major Olga Solis: [reads the message from aliens] “Bring us your leader.”
Elio: [over phone] Hi, can you hear me?
Major Olga Solis: Honey, now is a really bad time.
Elio: Okay. Bye. I love you.
Elio: [as he’s being transported to the alien planet] This is new. No. Ah, no. No. No. No! No, thank you!
Alien: Please state the name of your home world.
Elio: Uh, Earth.
Ambassador Questa: Welcome leader of “Uh-Earth”.
Ambassador Turais: We are the United Advanced Species of the Universe.
Elio: I think there’s been a mistake.
Ambassador Turais: You’re not the leader of Uh-Earth?
Ambassador Helix: Sorry for the mix up.
Ambassador Grigon: Commence memory wipe.
Elio: No! Wait! I am the leader of Earth.
Ambassador Tegmen: Why is your voice different?
Elio: I have always talked like this, since I was a kid. Which I’m obviously not anymore. But, yes, I run the planet.
Ambassador Grigon: The trial of Uh-Earth can proceed.
Ambassador Helix: Until then, as you say on Uh-Earth, “Okay. Bye. I love you.”
Ambassadors: Okay. Bye. I love you.
Ambassador Grigon: You’re the talk of the Communiverse.
Elio: If Mom could see me now.
Ambassador Grigon: I know what you mean. I ate my mother at birth. But in moments of great success, I regret it.
Elio: That’s a thing for your species?
Ambassador Grigon: No, just a me thing. Everyone was shocked.
