About the Movie

In ONWARD, teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. But when the boys’ fearless mom Laurel (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior – aka The Manticore (voice of Octavia Spencer) – and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.

I know I’m looking forward to this one! Thanks to Walt Disney Studios for releasing ONWARD early for us to enjoy during this unprecedented time!

    I saw this one in the theater a few weeks ago before coronavirus stuff hit. It was okay … good messages, for sure, but not my favorite Pixar movie. The 3D was really good, though.

    I’m going to sign up for Disney Plus just so I can watch it. Yay!

  • Both of my kids have been asking to see this one. We’ll probably pick it up once it come to DVD (we don’t have cable). Thanks for the summary – I was wondering what they were talking about and hadn’t looked into it yet.
