In a suburban fantasy world, two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, go on a journey to discover if there is still a little magic left out there in order to spend one last day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. When the boys' fearless mom, Laurel, realizes that her sons are missing, she teams up with the legendary winged-lion-scorpion former warrior -- The Manticore -- and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.

film review (TV36)

Wow! Pixar is back!
While not exactly redefining the wheel (which we've come to expect from pixar films) onward is powerful and so clever that it does in its own unique way. The story revolves around two brothers for the whole 2 hours, showing their ups and downs which makes two elf brothers seem very real. Obviously the movie can't just have a good message, it needs to be a good movie! Dont worry cause pixar will take you on roller coaster of a ride and still do it on a great place. The world building is something, and the wit consistently made me smile. But the best part of it had to be the cleverness of the movie, I cant say how they did it without spoiling the movie. Bottom line expect a kids movie aimed at adults and watch with a loved one (and a pack of tissues)

Fun and Magically-Endearing!
Oh... a original Pixar film?, well it's about time, the last original film was the wonderful Coco!, I absolutely adore the heck of that film, with this one, they got Monsters University Director Dan Scanlon to direct this new original film, which seems to have this Witchcraft and Wizardry look to it, I am so far on board and even with some big names like Tom Holland and Chris Pratt, this could be another extremely great original Pixar film!, the trailers while left me a bit doubtful over this plot, I was still excited to see what Pixar can bring to this subject matter!, but Disney and Pixar was nice enough to release this early on the 29th of February which is Leap Day or as Pixar calls it "Onward Day", which gives me a chance to see this film a week early, so yeah I saw it and..... yeah I did really like it, although it doesn't quite hit all the marks that makes it... well... a Pixar classic, but there is a lot to talk about, so let's talk about it.

Another Solid Pixar movie that I think is better than most people are saying
This may TECHNICALLY be one of Pixar's weaker movies, but that's only because their track record is so good! Onward is a very nice animated movie that I believe still surpasses Illuminations best movies. Despicable Me is good, but this is even better, so I think if you liked that movie, you should be able to enjoy this one too! The story follows 2 brothers named Ian and Barley who lost their dad when they were toddlers, and on Ian's 16th birthday he is given a gift his dad left behind which turns out to be a magic staff that can cast various spells. Gifted with the staff is instructions on how to bring him back for a single day using a spell. As you probably saw in the trailer, the spell goes awry and only their dad's legs turn up, and they have to find a gem to finish the spell within 24 hours. What follows is an endearing quest with some funny moments, but also heartwarming moments. Chris Pratt's character Barley may come off as annoying to some, but he means well and personally I didn't find him anywhere as annoying as everyone else. Ian is a nervous wreck at the start, but develops throughout (well all the characters are slated to develop, it's a Pixar movie after all :))
