From the creator of Monsters University
Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney•Pixar’s “Onward” introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
Voiced by Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer and Chris Pratt, Onward is Pixar’s next feature film. It’s written and directed by Dan Scanlon, the creator of Monsters University. That film wasn’t as well received as the original, but Pixar do try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth. Pixar’s own website quotes Scanlon as saying “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother” and is about siblings who lost their father when they were young.
Whilst Monsters University perhaps wasn’t the prequel we envisioned or needed, this movie does likely have a lot more heart, coming from a very personal place for Scanlon.
Plus who doesn’t want more Chris Pratt and Tom Holland teaming up together post-Avengers?
