Disney Pixar’s Onward: Four Things We Know…
1. Pixar’s 22nd movie, Onward is directed and co-written by Dan Scanlon – a man who knows his animation stuff. Scanlon also helmed Pixar’s excellent Monsters University, and was part of the creative leadership team on Inside Out, Coco, The Incredibles 2 and Toy Story 4. That’s some CV!
2. The film tells the story of two elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, who are voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the MCU). In an unusual move for an animated film, Holland and Pratt recorded some of their lines together.
3. Onward’s supporting cast is amazing, and includes Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer and John Ratzenberger. A quick, very cool Ratzenberger fact for you: he has voiced a character in every single Pixar movie to date. Yup, all 22!
4. Onward’s story is set in an original suburban fantasy world and sees Ian and Barley attempting to bring back their late father, so they can meet him properly. As with most Pixar movies, you can expect to cry. Nobody does heart and humour better!
The film releases at ODEON, Red Dragon Centre on 6 March.
