Chris Pratt and Tom Holland star as two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot looking for magic. That's it, that's the pitch, somewhere between Trolls and Monsters Inc with a dash of fresh and youthful energy that will infuse a sense of originality into the mix.
Humans do not exist in this world (described as a 'suburban fantasy world'), so it seems fitting that Onward is helmed by the team behind Monsters University – director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae. Completing the cast, Julia-Louis Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer have been confirmed.
The story is inspired by the death of Scanlon's father when he was a child, taking stock of the importance of brotherhood and the timeless urgency of a good adventure. The Lightfoot brothers are looking for magic as to salvage one day with their father, who passed away when they were young.
While there's little more than a teaser to go off right now, the luminous visuals already bursting with centaurs, dragons, trolls and more, Onward is already nurturing Coco's legacy with superhuman playfulness.
