A heart-warming animated family film with Tom Holland and Chris Pratt

Movie preview: Onward

Set in a suburban fantasy world, where trolls, mermaids, fauns, satyrs, gnomes, sprites and goblins live in the same neighborhood as elves and jogging centaurs – and where unicorns tip over rubbish bins – live two teenage elf brothers – Ian and Barley Lightfoot.

This magical world, however, where fairy tale was once the reality, is losing its sense of magic with its inhabitants using machines, gadgets and moern technology such as mobile phones and cars instead.

So Ian (voiced by Tom Holland) and his brother Barley (voiced by Chris Pratt) embark on an exciting quest to discover if there is still magic in the world in order to spend one more day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.

Using a staff, Barley has Ian bring their father back for 24 hours.

Unfortunately a few complications arise and the brothers end up managing to only bring back half of their dad – his legs to be precise.

Comedy then ensues as the brothers set about trying to find a way to bring back the rest of him.

We can’t wait to see this with the kiddos it promises all the feels.
