Onward : Movie Review

Onward (2020) - Movie PosterPixar's magic is alive and thriving with "Onward," writer-director Dan Scanlon (2013's "Monsters University") and co-writers Jason Headley & Keith Bunin's lovingly crafted, sneakily deceptive coming-of-age fantasy. The quirkily amusing concept of its setting is fresh—the film takes place in a world populated by mythical beings where actual magic has taken a backseat in the present day to modern Earthbound convenience—but it's the picture's thoughtful story and emotionally true characters which prove most enduring. Beginning as a fairly broad comedy and concluding somewhere altogether different and profound, "Onward" knows exactly how to sink its hooks into the hearts of viewers.
