Onward is a Pixar film set in a suburban fantasy world about two brothers, Ian and Barley (voiced Tom Holland and Chris Pratt respectively), on a quest to reunite with their deceased father. Also voicing characters in the movie are Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Laurel Lightfoot, the mother, and Octavia Spencer as Manticore.
Tom Holland, a.k.a. Peter Parker/Spiderman

Onward is written and directed by Dan Scanlon, who also wrote and directed Monsters University and was part of Pixar’s senior creative team behind Toy Story 4, The Incredibles 2, Coco, Inside Out, Brave, and Cars.

The Pixar Theory
There’s a widely popular fan theory revolving around the Pixar movies, creatively called The Pixar Theory, that proposes that every Pixar movie, from Dinosaurs to Toy Story 4, are all set in the same universe. If you’re a big Pixar fan, and have 26 minutes to kill, I highly recommend the video below. It will make you rethink every Pixar movie. (And the witch in Brave… will blow your mind.)
It will be interesting to see how OnWard fits into this theory. Maybe it breaks the theory, or maybe it will definitely resolve the questions. We’ll soon find out.
Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Android or iPhone ) whenever you go to the movies. (We've been doing this over 10 years now.) We always have Peetimes for the latest wide release films, including OnWard, 1917, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc. You can also keep up with the latest movie news and reviews on our blog or by following us on Twitter @RunPee, and liking us on Facebook.
Creator and developer of the RunPee app. When something doesn’t work right in the app it’s pretty much his fault. 🙂
Aspiring author. Would like to finish his “Zombie Revelations” trilogy if he could break away for working on RunPee and the cottage he’s building for RunPee Mom.
