Pixar's Onward--New Trailer Hints At Another Tearjerker, But With Magic
"I wrote this spell so I could see for myself who my boys grow up to be."
Disney has released a second trailer for Pixar's next film, Onward. The first trailer gave us a general idea of the film's plot, and this second one digs a little deeper into the film's world, where magic intermingles with suburbia.
Pixar's latest film is about two brothers who are sent on a quest to revive their long-deceased father, who devised a spell before his own death to return to life on his youngest's son's 16th birthday and finally, properly meet him. Something goes wrong, and the spell only revives the dad from the waist down, sending his sons on a magical journey to fully revive him--one that will, it seems, awaken a curse along the way.
The trailer, which is full of magical creatures and fantasy elements, looks like a lot of fun, but since this is the studio behind Coco and Up, and it's a film about bringing a dad back to life, there will likely be at least one scene precisely engineered to emotionally destroy the viewer.
Onward is directed by Dan Scanlan (Monster's University) and stars Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Julia Louise-Dreyfus, and Octavia Spencer, all of whom can be heard in the trailer.
