Here’s everything we know so far.
Plot: What’s it all about?
Onward sees two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, struggling with a magical spell to bring their father back for 24 hours on Ian’s 16th birthday. Their mom, voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, gives them a wizard’s staff passed down by their father to cast the spell.
But when Holland’s character Ian can’t hold the staff for the duration of the spell, they only get back their father’s legs. So starts a quest to restore the rest of his body.
The quest sees them travel to a gas station overrun with pixies and a tavern with a fire-breathing monster. Another spell-casting attempt gone wrong shrinks Barley to the size of, well, barley.
There are unicorns that act like raccoons, mushroom-shaped houses and dragons as house pets.
