After a few weeks away from the movie theater, it was nice to sit back with popcorn and cola for Onward by Disney and Pixar. I didn’t even know the movie was in the works until the first trailer dropped a few months ago. It promised a world that had moved on from magic . . . even though the world was full of magical creatures. And it delivers on the promise. And the premise about one day to bring back the main characters’ father? Wonderfully executed as a quest and destination. While the voice actors kind of pull you out of the movie at the beginning (are we watching an Avengers movie?), by the halfway mark you’re so wrapped up in the quest that you forget that Spider-Man and Johnny Karate are on a road trip.
Here’s the final trailer for the movie. I highly recommend it.
