Pixar has confirmed the title of its next original feature, ‘Onward,’ revealing four members of its voice, including Chris Pratt (‘Guardians of the Galaxy’), Tom Holland (‘Spiderman: Homecoming’), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (‘Veep’) and Octavia Spencer (‘The Shape of Water’).
Set in a suburban fantasy world, ‘Onward’ introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
‘Monster’s University’ director Dan Scanlon will take the reins for the project, with Kori Rae producing.
“At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” said Scanlon in a press release. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
‘Onward’ is pencilled in for a March 2020 release.
