Alright so Pixar is moving onward from infinity and beyond it seems. After the much-welcomed announcement of Toy Story 4. Pixar has just announced its new film. And who else was better suited to leak information about the movie than Disney's resident leaker, Tom Holland.
The Spider-Man: Homecoming star joins his Avengers: Infinity War costar Chris Pratt, along with Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer in the voice cast for Onward, directed by Monsters University's Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae.
"I am so excited and I've been trying to keep this a secret for so long and I know just can't do it anymore," Holland said in a video posted to Instagram.
It is being reported that Onward, set in a suburban fantasy world, is currently scheduled for theatres on March 6, 2020.
The story centres on "two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there," reads the official logline.
"At Pixar, we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth," Scanlon says in a statement. "This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother." Onward was initially teased at 2017's D23 Expo, where the filmmakers revealed more plot information: After the death of their father at a young age, the boys embark "on a quest through this mundane, modern fantasy world to somehow find a way to spend one last magical day with their father."
Now, since the two brothers seem to be at the centre of the movie, it is a reasonable assumption that Tom and Chris will be playing them. It is also being reported that Onward is the first new Pixar title announced since Frozen's Jennifer Lee and Inside Out's Peter Doctor were named the successors of John Lasseter.
