What is "Onward?"
Apparently, its an upcoming movie from Disney and Pixar. Thankfully, its not a sequel to the studios impressive stack of movies. They are making something original again. In my mind, when Pixar is working in non-sequel mode, they make some of their very best work. Apparently, Chris Pratt and Tom Holland will be joining Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the movie. Good to know both Star Lord and Spiderman didn't turn to dust. It looks like for this Pixar movie, they will be taking us to a fantasy world, where Pratt and Holland will be voicing two elves. The two elves will be searching for a special type of magic that will allow the two elves to spend one last day with their deceased father.
According to my source, the movie will be full of all sorts of fantasy creatures but will not feature any humans. Good. There is always a need to push a human character onto movies like this as if we can't engage in other beings. If anybody can make sure we feel empathy and emotions towards any sort of being, its Pixar. I mean look what they've done with toys and mice and robots and superheroes and monsters and bugs and ghosts and cars and dinosaurs and fish. Hell, even feelings have feelings in Pixar movies. If anything, it will be interesting to see how Pixar bends their own formula.
I like the cast and I am willing to see a trailer.
