Onward: new trailer and poster for Disney-Pixar's magical adventure

Chris Pratt and Tom Holland are on the journey of a lifetime in the latest trailer for Disney-Pixar's Onward. And there's a new poster too.

The new movie from the makers of Toy Story 4 juxtaposes the ordinary with the extraordinary. The film takes place in a fantastical landscape where mundane, distinctly human trappings (traffic, accountancy jobs et al) have started to impose themselves alongside fairies, unicorns and the like. But does genuine magic still exist?

Two elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, are about to find out when they cast a spell aiming to bring their late father back to life. Having inherited their dad's magical staff, they succeed in resurrecting him – well, sort of. Only his legs are visible, but the physical and emotional connection between father and sons is clear.

The two siblings then embark on a road trip with their pops to fully restore him to life. Along the way, they must contend with pixie versions of Hells Angels and much more besides. 

As you can see, it looks like classic Pixar, fusing an imaginative conceit with relatable, heart-wrenching concerns. Just when we thought the genius animators couldn't wring more tears out of us, we're proved wrong again.

Onward is directed by Monsters University helmer Dan Scanlon and arrives in Cineworld cinemas on the 6th of March 2020. Do you think you'll have to break out the hankies for this one? Let us know @Cineworld.
