Disney Pixar’s Onward

The highly anticipated film, which hits theaters tomorrow, March 6, will feature the voices of Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the film will take place in a suburban fantasy world.

The storyline of the movie will follow two teenage elf brothers, Ian Lightfoot (Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt) as they embark on “an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.”

Earlier this year, Director Dan Scanlon spoke to ComicBook about the upcoming Disney Pixar film. Here’s what he had to say:

“The story is inspired by my own relationship with my brother and our connection with our dad who passed away when I was about a year old. He’s always been a mystery to us. A family member sent us a tape recording of him saying just two words: ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye.’ Two words. But to my brother and me — it was magic,” the director revealed.”

“That’s where the idea of magic came from. We thought, ‘Well, we need to make a movie where that could be possible.’ And then the idea was, ‘I don’t want to make a period piece in a fantasy world, I wouldn’t feel as close to that,’ and then thought, ‘Well, why can’t it be modern and be a fantasy magical place?’ And that led to the humor of, ‘Well, that would be ridiculous and we could do all these gags.’ And then lastly they kind of came together when we realized well, ‘Ian is this character who is not living up to his full potential out of fear and comfort, not wanting to explore and take risks,’ and the world was kind of mirroring that, too.”

And Chris Pratt confirmed, just like other Pixar films, this one is sure to make you cry (even if you are a grown man!) In a recent tweet from Pratt, he wrote:

The new Disney Pixar film, Onward, hits theaters on March 6th.
