Pixar is a name very few people may not be familiar with, as the Disney-owned animation studio has provided some brilliant flicks over the years. It seems like recently Disney has been in the news for a long time due to several reasons. However, the animated studio is separated from all of it, and its next big project Onward has hyped up fans from all over the world.
The film is mostly being talked about because of the voice actors. Pixar has signed Tom Holland and Chris Pratt for the voice of main leads. Yes, the dynamic duo from the MCU will now feature in the next animated project of Pixar. The fan-beloved Tom Holland, known for playing Spider-Man and Chris Pratt, who plays Starlord, is going to feature in the animated flick.
The movie was first teased by Pixar way back in 2018 when they tweeted about it. It has been a long time since then; however, it has not killed the hype for the movie in the slightest. So here is everything that you need to know about the upcoming Pixar’s Onward.
- The Plot
The story will revolve around two teen elf brothers named Barley and Ian Lightfoot. It is Ian’s 16th birthday, and they want to bring back their father for the celebration. The brothers intend to bring him back via a magic spell for 24 hours. They can do so with the help of a magic wand that their mother passed on to them. Julia Louis-Dreyfus will voice the character, and she brings the brothers the magical wand passed down by their father.
In a hilarious turn of events, Ian fails to hold the staff long enough for the spell to perform. This results in even more chuckles as they are only able to bring back their father’s torso. This marks the beginning of their story to bring back their father, fully.
Their journey seems to take them to intriguing places where they encounter a tavern, pixies alongside fire-blowing monsters. Ian messes up another spell and turns his brother Barley into the size of barley.
The journey packs a lot more adventure and fun as they encounter raccoon resembling unicorns, pet dragons, and mushroom-shaped homes. The film already looks a lot happening as the official trailer has been released for it.
