Embark on an Adventure Full of Wonder & Magic in Onward

In times of old, the world was magical. But times change. In the new world, there are still traces of magic but the most part of it taken over by consumerism. People are too self-involved and nobody has the time to stop and take notice of the magic that lingers around them. This is the setting of the latest Pixar animated film Onward. Directed by Dan Scanlon, this film is set in a suburban fantasy world and stars the main voices of Tom Holland,Chris Pratt,Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia SpencerAli Wong, and Lena Waithe.

The story of Onward revolves around two young brothers and their single mother. The younger Ian Lightfoot had never met his father while his elder brother Barley was too young when he had passed away. So on his coming-of-age birthday, Ian is given a gift that was prearranged by his father – a magical staff that can bring the dead man back for one whole day. Ian and Barley are excited but the magic only brings back the bottom part of his body. The boys now have to go on an adventure full of magic, wonder, and lots of danger to bring back their dad completely, even if it’s just for one day.

From the trailer of Onward, we can see that Barley is excited about the magic quest that awaits them while Ian is the voice of reason. But the prospect of meeting his father for the first time is too good to pass so the brothers embark on an adventure of a lifetime. On the way, they meet the manticore Corey who is a restaurant owner and helps them on the quest. Meanwhile, their mother is frantically looking for her boys and follows their trail to Corey, who realizes that she might have forgotten to tell the boys some key details about the quest, which can now lead them to danger. The boys are also held back by the cops along the way, who appear in the forms of a faun, a cyclops and a centaur.

With a magical story and an abundance of mythical creatures, Onward is the perfect summer film for kids. But Pixar animation movies have also been favored by young adults over the years and with actors like Tom Holland and Chris Pratt voicing the lead characters of Ian and Barley, this seems like the film that’ll attract audiences of all ages. Their mother Laurel Lightfoot is voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus while Octavia Spencer lends her voice for Corey the manticore. Ali Wong and Lena Waithe voice the characters that appear briefly in the trailers.

Onward is on its way to the theatres and you can finally catch it on the big screen on the 6th of March, 2020.
