Onward | Dan Scanlon directing | March 6, 2020

Recommended Posts

I think whatever happens this is going to be a summer release and the other 2020 movie is getting moved back. Pixar's brand appeal isn't an automatic anymore and they may not want to take chances with a non-traditional release even if it's ultimately irrelevant. 

 

Post-Good Dinosaur this is probably going to be their first release where they really have to nail the marketing for the GA. Movie bloggers are inevitably going to be crapping on the trailers and with the director of Monsters University helming they won't have the benefit of the doubt that comes with the director of Toy Story 3 making Coco.

I assume if the March 2020 movie moves back, Disney will just put a live action fairytale in its place

....I wonder if this is retooled King of the Elves.

 

Either way I am totally here for it. Pity Pixar doesn't do adaptations, I half expected this to be putting the book Faerie Wars to screen.

According to Scanlon, who lost his father at a very young age, the film is inspired by the question he’s always asked: who was my father? The story is set in a world with no humans—only elves, trolls and sprites—“anything that would be on the side of a van in the ’70s,” said the director. “In the film, we’re going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him. But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father.”

 

In the film, unicorns are so common that they’re considered pests, and concept art of them eating garbage on the streets was shown.

It would be odd imo if Pixar took WDAS project (even though kind of interesting idea). But Pixar does not adaptations in the first place and urban fantasy isnt that difficult concept to think anyway. I have actually wanted Pixar to do this kind of premise. Another one I gave though they should do is time-travel concept which migt fit Pixar even more I think.

The best films are personal in some way. I think Dan Scanlon will connect to this project better than he connected to Monsters University, and that the connection will lead to a better film.

Cool banner.

 

My wager is the final title will be the whimsically satirical name for the community. Something like Elf Heights or Dragon Hills.

TGD, Coco, Fantasy world...dead fathers and sons seeking them out becoming a bit repetitive for Pixar imo.

I really do like the concept, "Modern Magical" is something I like, but for now I'm just so indifferent to us following the story of more male characters.
