New ‘Onward’ Trailer: Chris Pratt & Tom Holland Have Half-Dad Issues in Disney•Pixar’s Latest

Disney•Pixar

A new international trailer has arrived for Onward, the latest CG-animated film from Disney•Pixar.

MCU stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt reunite as the voices of Ian and Barley Lightfoot, two teenage elf brothers in a fantasy world that has all but forgotten the magic that was once so prevalent. When they receive a staff with the power to bring back their late father for one day, they attempt to do so … but just his legs return. They head on a journey to find a way to complete his body.

As with many of Pixar’s films, you can expect Onward to come with an emotional hit – particularly with the less-than-a-day-with-dad narrative. Besides the fact that tissues will probably be needed (perhaps not as much as they’ll be needed in Pixar’s upcoming Soul), this looks like a colourful, fun adventure that should benefit from the charisma of the two leads.

Monsters University helmer Dan Scanlon directs and writes this one, with a supporting voice cast that also includes Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer. Onward opens in US cinemas on March 6 and arrives in Australia April 2, 2020.

Set in a suburban fantasy world, “Onward” introduces two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt), who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Also featuring the voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Ian and Barley’s mom, Laurel Lightfoot, and Octavia Spencer as the voice of the Manticore, Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new original feature film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae—the team behind “Monsters University.” Disney and Pixar’s “Onward” opens in cinemas on April 2, 2020.
