And here’s the synopsis for the film which was originally revealed at 2017’s D23 Expo:
“In the film, we’re going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him. But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father.”
“The world is basically a mix of the fantastic and the everyday,” Scanlon said (via Entertainment Weekly). “There are mushroom houses that line the streets with satellite dishes sticking out the top of them and a minivan parked in front of each one. There are no humans… but there are unicorns everywhere. They’re basically rodents, possums eating all the trash out of your bins.”
Onward is set to hit cinemas on 6th March, 2020!
