Synopsis[edit]

The film is set in a suburban fantasy world where humans do not exist, populated with elves, trolls, and sprites, where unicorns are as common as rodents. Two teenage elf brothers embark on a quest to discover if there is still magic in the world in order to spend a day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.[2]

Voice cast[edit]

Production[edit]

In July 2017, Pixar announced a "suburban fantasy world" film at the D23 Expo, with Scanlon directing and Rae producing.[3] The film is inspired by Scanlon's father's death when Scanlon and his brother were younger, and their relationship. Scanlon decided to write the story after hearing an audio clip of his father.[4] On December 12, 2018, the title and cast were revealed: Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer.[5] C. S. Anderson was announced as Scanlon's co-writer.[6]

Release[edit]

Onward is scheduled to be released on March 6, 2020 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.[1]
