All quests begin with the Manticore and so does Pixar’s Onward.

The new trailer for this animated story is starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as elf brothers, bringing viewers before Corey (Octavia Spencer). She was once known as a “fearless adventurer” as a magical creature that’s part lion, part bat, and part scorpion, she adapts to modern times by turning her tavern, once a way-station for travelers, into her own chain restaurant.

That is the setting of Onward and it’s a magical world filled with magical creatures who have adapted to modern times. Unicorns are now the equivalent of raccoons eating trash and pixies are now a part of biker gang.

Ian (Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Pratt) discover a wizard’s staff kept for them by their late father, as well as instructions about casting a spell that will bring him back for 24 hours. The enchantment backfires halfway through and now the siblings have to travel across the land to find the items required to fully restore their dead father. It’s sure to be a tearjerker.

Disney also revealed new characters, some of which are seen in the Onward trailer. Mel Rodriguez (On Becoming a God in Central Florida) voices centaur Officer Colt Bronco, The Chi creator Lena Waithe voices Officer Specter, and comedienne Ali Wong (Always Be My Maybe) voices Officer Gore. Julia Louis-Dreyfus also voices Ian and Barley’s mom Laurel, who teams up with the Manticore when she realizes her sons are in danger.

Directed by Dan Scanlon, Onward will hit theaters on March 6, 2020.
