First Look at Pixar's 'Onward' Reveals Chris Pratt, Tom Holland as Elves
Pixar is going back to its originals drawing board with "Onward," and the first two images preview the elf tale.
The story centers on two teen elf brothers (voiced by Chris Pratt and Tom Holland) who set out on an extraordinary quest in a van named Guinevere to discover if there is still a little magic left in the world.
Pratt voices boisterous older brother Barley Lightfoot, while Holland is the younger, gawky brother Ian. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays their mom.
The two "Avengers: Endgame" stars relied on their pre-established bond to generate chemistry. "They are clearly friends,” writer/director Dan Scanlon told People. "They’ve worked together before and hung out together. It was fun to sit back and watch them make each other laugh.”
Scanlon previously made "Monsters University" and the two images have a similar vibe — fantastical elements within an everyday, normal setting.
Pixar has made two sequels as its last two movies ("Toy Story 4" and "Incredibles 2"). "Onward" will be its first original since 2017's "Coco."
"Onward" opens in theaters March 6.
