Disney-Pixar’s Onward has landed some major talent.
The leading voice stars for Pixar’s next original movie have been announced and they are Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer.
The four will work together in the animated adventure described in the past by Pixar as a “suburban fantasy.” The film follows two teenage elf brothers (Holland and Pratt), who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still magic left in the world.
“At Pixar, we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” director Dan Scanlon said in a statement. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
Scanlon and producer Kori Rae couldn’t be happier with the stellar cast tapped to take part in the production.
“Chris brings equal parts huge heart and fantastic humor to his character,” said Rae, and Spencer “can do it all. We’re especially excited about the depth as well as humor that she brings to her character.”
Holland “has an infectious charm and sincerity that makes you root for him in every character he plays,” said Scanlon said and added that “there is no one funnier than Julia. But she also brings a warmth and loving side to her character.”
Onward is scheduled to hit theaters March 6, 2020.
