Disney-Pixar has released a new trailer for their upcoming film Onward, an animated tale set in a suburban fantasy world where elves, trolls and unicorns are commonplace.The latest trailer transforms Tom Holland and Chris Pratt into two teenage elf brothers, Ian Lightfoot and Barley Lightfoot, who set out on a rambunctious road trip to discover whether there is enough magic still left in the world for them to conjure up a special enchantment.The clips show Ian and Barley being gifted a magical staff by their mother (voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), along with a set of instructions for a “visitation” spell that will allow them to bring their late father back into the mortal realm for just 24 hours.
Onward’s new preview plays up the comedic elements of the fantasy-adventure, with elf moms throwing yoga-busting shapes, feral unicorns running rampant in caves, pixie biker gangs stocking up on snacks and, in one particularly funny clip, Ian accidentally shrinking Barley down to miniature in a growth spell gone-wrong.

Holland and Pratt occasionally recorded their voice parts together in the same room, which director Dan Scanlon believes amplified the on-screen chemistry between the two stars, as he described their scenes as “a real joy” to watch.
Onward is scheduled for release on March 6, 2020, as the first of two Pixar films set for that year. The second, Soul, will open in U.S. theaters on June 19, 2020.
