Chris Pratt, Tom Holland to voice ‘Onward’

Los Angeles: Stars Chris Pratt, Tom Holland, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer are leading the voice cast for “Onward”, Pixars next original movie.

Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, the film by Pixar Animation Studios is slated for theaters on March 6, 2020, reports

Pixar had previously referred to the film as an untitled suburban fantasy. Scanlon, who helmed 2013’s “Monsters University” for Pixar, has re-teamed with producer Kori Rae, who also produced “Monsters University”.

“Onward” follows two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still magic left in the world.

Scanlon, who was raised in Michigan, said the film’s story is driven by his own life. He was 1 and his brother was 3 when their father passed away.

“At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” Scanlon said. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
