Meet the Star-Studded Cast of Pixar’s Onward in New Featurette

Disney Pixar is set to come back to original films after the release of Toy Story 4, and next month will have Onward, a story of two elf brothers who seek to bring back their father. With the movie close to release, we have this new featurette introducing us to the star-studded cast including Marvel's Chris Pratt and Tom Holland.

What's also interesting is director Dan Scanlon's reveal that the movie comes from a very personal space. Scanlon says that his father died when he was only a year-old, so the movie will kind of tell the same story with Ian Lightfoot who never met his father, but was suddenly given the opportunity to with magic.

Besides the cast members that appeared in the featurette, the movie will also have voices from the likes of Ali Wong, Lena Waithe, and Mel Rodriguez. No Pixar movie is also complete without the cameo voice of John Ratzenberger. We don't know who's voicing the father in the film, but wouldn't it blow everyone's minds if he was voiced by Robert Downey Jr.?
