What is Onward about?

Onward is set in a fantasy world inhabited by creatures like elves and fairies, where magic was once commonplace but has now been replaced by technology similar to that of our own.

When two elf brothers receive a message from their late father saying that magic still exists in the world, they discover it can be used to bring him back to life but their attempt only half works.

The hapless pair manage to bring their father’s legs back into the mortal world, but need to go on a quest to find the magic necessary to make him whole again.

The journey will bring them onto the path of formidable villains and perilous obstacles, with only each other to rely on for support.

Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home) take the leading roles as the two elf brothers, with Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) providing the voice of their mother.
