D23 Expo 2017, Disney announced an untitled Pixar movie coming up. It was described as a “suburban fantasy world” and pretty much nobody knew what it was about or would look like.
The world the movie is set in will be one without humans. But full of fantasy figures like elves, trolls sprites and unicorns. Described as “pretty much anything that would be on the side of a van in the ’70s”.
Today we finally get to see what this movie will look like. Director Dan Scanlon has previously said the movie inspired by his own experience and that that’s something they like to do at Pixar, this could be one of the reasons Pixar stories are as compelling as they are. Onward was inspired by the director’s personal relation with his brother and the death of their father. The movie is about a world where magic existed a long time ago, but now exists of the fantasy creatures – where the unicorns are like possums eating the trash – with machines doing the magic etc. The star cast including Tom Holland and Chris Pratt has been praised for their work so far and we can’t wait to see their characters in action.
Everything definitely sounds like a success formula, and the images look to add to just that. Judge for yourself below:
