Onward is an upcoming American 3D computer animated fantasy adventure film produced by Pixar and set to be released on March 6, 2020. The film will be directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae.
Set in a modern suburban fantasy world, Onward tells the tale of two teenage elf brothers who set out on a quest to discover if there is still magic left in the world to have one day to be with their deceased father who died when they were too young to remember him.
Onward was first announced at the 2017 D23 Expo as "The Untitled Pixar Film That Takes You Into A Suburban Fantasy World" and was described as a story about two brothers seeking to reconnect with their late father set in a human-free world of elves, sprites, trolls, dragons and "anything else that would be painted on the side of a van in the 1970s", with unicorns being depicted as common pests.
On December 12, 2018, it was announced that the film will be called "Onward" and will also be based on Dan's relationship with his brother. It was announced that Scanlon will co-wrote the screenplay with Zootopia and Moana animator, C.S. Anderson.
