Onward (2020 Disney Pixar Movie)

“Onward” is an animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The movie was released on March 6, 2020. Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the film takes place in a suburban fantasy world where mythical creatures like elves, trolls, unicorns, and dragons live normal lives.

The story follows two elf brothers, Ian Lightfoot (voiced by Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (voiced by Chris Pratt). On Ian’s 16th birthday, their late father leaves them a magical gift: a spell that can bring him back for just one day. However, the spell goes awry, and they only manage to conjure half of their father’s body. Determined to see their father fully, the brothers embark on a quest to find another magical gem that will complete the spell before the day is over.

As they journey together, the brothers face challenges, discover the power of brotherly love, and learn valuable life lessons. “Onward” is a heartwarming and emotional adventure that explores themes of family, loss, and the magic that lies within each person.

The film received critical acclaim for its touching story, imaginative world-building, and outstanding voice performances. It was praised for its unique blend of fantasy and modern-day elements, as well as its emotional depth and humor. “Onward” is another example of Pixar’s ability to create meaningful and entertaining films that resonate with audiences of all ages.

I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
