For a while now, all we knew aboutThe Pixar release cThatalendar is that teak of sequels in the last few years but no details were confirmed about what these films could be. That was true until the announcement this week about the studio’s big 2020 release: an original animated feature titled Onward.
Disney has released an official synopsis to the new movie:
“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 [director Dan] Scanlon. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
The movie will be directed by Dan Scanlon who directed the Monsters Inc. prequel, Monsters University. And he has assembled an impressive voice cast for the project: Chris Pratt and Tom Holland , Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer.
“At Pixar, we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” said director Dan Scanlon. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
Scanlon said that Holland brings “an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him.” He also said that “no one” is funnier than Louis-Dreyfus, who “brings a warmth and loving side to her character.”
Meanwhile, producer Kori Rae noted that Pratt brings a “huge heart and fantastic humor to his character.” She also said that “Octavia can do it all. We’re especially excited about the depth as well as humor that she brings to her character.”
Pixar fans who scrutinize the company’s every decision will surely be pleased that Pixar is working on another original project rather than a sequel; While the company had a lot of success with sequels like Incredibles 2, Cars 3, and Finding Dory there is no doubt that the movies that resonated with audience the most in the last few films were originals like Coco and Inside out.
