Chris Pratt And Tom Holland To Lead Pixar’s Next Feature Onward, Plot Details

Pixar Animation Studios revealed today four members of its voice cast for its original new feature film Onward, including Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Tom Holland (Spiderman: Homecoming), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) and Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water). Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the team behind 2013’s Monsters UniversityOnward 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. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”

“Chris brings equal parts huge heart and fantastic humor to his character,” said Rae regarding Pratt.

“Tom has an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him in every character he plays,” said Scanlon about Holland’s joining the cast.

“There is no one funnier than Julia,” said Scanlon, “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.”

Clearly, these are some pretty big names, and I can’t wait to see this come to fruition. Pixar is always at their best with original films, and with this being another original property for them, I can’t really complain.
