It’s Road Trip Time in the First Official Trailer for Pixar’s Onward

They were last seen together battling side-by-side in both outer space and upstate New York in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, but now Chris Pratt and Tom Holland have an entirely different kind of epic quest to take on. Pratt and Holland play a pair of elf brothers who launch themselves on a mission to find their father’s missing remains—well, half of them—in Pixar’s latest Onwardfrom writer/director and longtime Pixar creative Dan Scanlon (Monster’s University). The Lightfoot Brothers, Ian (Holland) and Barley (Pratt) have been given a deeply odd gift from their dearly departed dad; the ability to bring him back to life for a single day. There’s a problem, however—in order to see their dad they’ve got to find the missing half of this gift (which happens to be their pop’s head and torso), which means it’s road trip time.

Onward marks the first non-sequel release for Pixar in a while—three years to be exact, since the gorgeous Coco—and focuses on a pair the teenage elf brothers going off on a journey in search of magic. The great Julia Louis-Dreyfus voices their mother, and the equally great Octavia Spencer as the Manticore. Check out the trailer here:
