Pixar Animation Studios has unveiled the first Onward images (via People), which you can view in the gallery below. The cast members include Chris Pratt (Avengers: Endgame, Guardians of the Galaxy), Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home, Avengers: Endgame), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) and Octavia Spencer (Ma, The Shape of Water).
Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the team behind 2013’s Monsters University, Onward is slated for theaters on March 6, 2020.
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,” said Scanlon previously. “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. Rae said of Pratt, “Chris brings equal parts huge heart and fantastic humor to his character.” Scanlon said of Holland, “Tom has an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him in every character he plays.”
“There is no one funnier than Julia,” said Scanlon of Louis-Dreyfus, “but she also brings a warmth and loving side to her character.” “Octavia can do it all,” said Rae of Spencer. “We’re especially excited about the depth as well as humor that she brings to her character.”
