Back in 2017 during the D23 animation panel, Disney announced a then untitled project that Pixar would be handling, taking place in a contemporary suburbia where no humans exist, but fantastical beings do. It is a personal story from director Dan Scalon, who like the main characters of the story, lost his father at an early age. The movie will have two brothers embarking on a quest to try to use the magic that was once strong in their world to spend one day with their father.
In December 2018, the movie received a title, “Onward“, and a release date: March 6, 2020. The movie also scooped up the voice talents of Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy). Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), and Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water).
Today the first images from the upcoming animated feature have been released showing the characters that Holland, Pratt, and Louis-Dreyfus play:
Now we await a trailer…
