Pixar Animation Studios have released the first teaser trailer for its next animated feature film after Toy Story 4 later this year, Onward. The premise for the upcoming movie is bonkers:

What if popular fantasy creatures like elves and trolls live in a suburban modern setting, one where unicorns and dragons are as commonplace as cats and dogs?

Onward stars two brothers, Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley (Chris Pratt) Lightfoot, who embark on a journey to find out if magic still exists in the world. The reason: to spend one more day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.

That sounds like another surefire recipe for a classic tearjerker Pixar film. The last original movie released by Pixar (which wasn’t a sequel or spinoff) was 2017’s Coco, which made me bawl my eyes out (check out my review of Coco here).

It’s great to see that Pixar is still working hard to produce that animated movie magic we love and not just unnecessary sequels no one actually asked for in the first place (*cough* Toy Story 4 *cough*).

Onward is slated to release worldwide on 6 March 2020. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
