Disney•Pixar’s Onward to star Chris Pratt, Tom Holland & more
Disney•Pixar has announced an original new feature titled Onward which will be arriving in theaters on March 6, 2020. The project will star the voice cast of Chris Pratt (Avengers: Infinity War), Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), and Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water).
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.
The feature will be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and produced by Kori Rae. Scanlon said that Onward was inspired by his own relationship with his brother.
According to the filmmakers, they’ve assembled a dream voice cast to help bring key characters to life. Rae said: “Chris brings equal parts huge heart and fantastic humor to his character.”
“Tom has an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him in every character he plays,” added Scanlon. He also noted that there is “no one funnier than Julia, but she also brings a warmth and loving side to her character.”
“Octavia can do it all,” said Rae. “We’re especially excited about the depth as well as humor that she brings to her character.”
