Whenever Disney-Pixar announce that they’re conjuring up a brand new animated film I’m always excited and their latest original creation, Onward, looks like it will be all sorts of fun.
Watch the brand new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney and Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers, Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt) who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the team behind Monsters University, Onward looks like a terrifically funny, feel-good, road trip movie that will really shine in a fantasy world gone modern, and the search for that essential spark that makes life fun.
Set amongst the elves, trolls, mermaids, centaurs, fauns, satyrs, gnomes, sprites, goblins, unicorns and dragons are brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot and Scanlon and Rae have found the perfect casting pair in the form of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt to bring them to life.
Although we only get a brief look at what is to come, the sights on offer here look amazing and this new design style, and the heavy 80s influence on the characters and tone of Onward will be a lot of fun. A special touch is the presence of The Cars’ ‘Magic’ as the trailers backing track and I’m very excited to see what develops from here.
Get ready to go off on a wild and fun adventure and discover all kinds of magic when Onward arrives in cinemas next year in March 2020.
