'Onward': Pixar reveals full details on their next adventure

Pixar Animation Studios has just revealed the title and cast for their next big screen release! “Onward” will feature the voices of Chris Pratt (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Tom Holland (“Spiderman: Homecoming”), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”) and Octavia Spencer (“The Shape of Water”). The film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the team behind 2013’s “Monsters University”.

Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney•Pixar’s “Onward” introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.

“At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” saus Scanlon. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”

According to the filmmakers, they’ve assembled a dream voice cast to help bring key characters to life. ·

“Chris brings equal parts huge heart and fantastic humor to his character,” says Rae.

“Tom has an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him in every character he plays,” adds Scanlon. “[And] there is no one funnier than Julia. [S]he also brings a warmth and loving side to her character.”

“Octavia can do it all,” says Rae. “We’re especially excited about the depth as well as humor that she brings to her character.”

“Onward” is slated to hit theaters on March 6, 2020.
