With Frozen II continuing it’s dominant run at the box office, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker coming out this week, no one would blame Disney for laying low. But — that’s just simply not the case, as Disney and Pixar continue to pump out new content for their new film, Onward.
In case you’re unfamiliar, Onward is the first non-sequel film from Pixar since 2017, and is set in a suburban fantasy world introducing audiences to two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley — voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, respectively. The two travel through a magical world searching for a little magic as they try to conjure up their father, who died when they were younger, to try and spend 24 hours with him.
To keep momentum going for Onward — set for release on March 6th, 2020 — Disney and Pixar have revealed character posters for the film, as well as dropping a new trailer.
