Disney Pixar’s Onward
Thinking about seeing Disney’s new Pixar Onward film? I was shockingly surprised how much I loved it. However, I do think it is a good idea to go into any film without expectations. I have a dear friend who I see eye to eye with on most things and she says she wasn’t really a fan. Me? I cried. So what made me love it so much?
Onward is the brotherly love film we have been waiting for since Anna and Elsa’s sisterly love on Frozen.
We have been forever blessed by the familial relationships represented in movies that go beyond romance. For example, we learn of Coco’s exploration of ancestor in an unforgettable parent/child relationship. We’ve fallen in love with best friends like Buzz Lightyear and Woody with their epic loyalty and trust. and now, we finally Onward that brings in a brotherly connection like we’ve never seen on the big screen represented in Pixar film.
This movie is set in a world where magic once existed and because of modern technology and convenience has been lost. Two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfood receive a wizards staff as a gift left behind from their deceased father. This staff comes with the magic of bringing their father back for one whole day!
Because of magic mishap the brothers are racing against the clock to have the chance to talk to their father before the sun sets.
As I was watching this film I couldn’t help but think of my sons. I am a mother of three boys and I think too often our sons have a lack of what a healthy brother relationship looks like for brothers on screen. As Ian and Barley support and love each other through the film my heart swelled. I couldn’t wait for my boys to see this.
In a world full of trash talking and “be a man” mentality it was so refreshing to see tenderness and love among male characters. It was so nice to see that Onward supports the development of finding who you are with the help of your family.
Is Onward scary?
No. There are some suspenseful moments of racing against the clock, running away from others trying to stop them from meeting their goal, and a few scenes of magical transformations. Nothing I would consider as scary.
How Long is Onward?
Onward is 1 hr 42 minutes.
Will Onward be good?
I wouldn’t say this is Pixar’s best. However, this film dives into the connection and importance of family relationships in a very real way and I loved it. Onward has taken real conversations and situations and put them into a fun, adventure film that had me feeling all the feels.
