“As long as I’ve been at Pixar, Pixar has been changing. […] It’s never really been exactly the same place, it can’t stay frozen in amber. There’s too many people, and times change and experiences change…There’s an amazing collection of talent there and the foundation of supporting filmmakers’ visions that is kind of, the secret sauce to Pixar’s enduring, continuing success. So I think there is a very bright future for Pixar.”
Brad Bird, director of The Incredibles, Incredibles 2, and Ratatouille
The film previously known as “The Untitled Pixar Film That Takes You To A Suburban Fantasy World” has now been officially announced as Onward, releasing on March 6 2020.
Directed by Monsters University’s Dan Scanlon, and produced by Kori Rae, Onward will take place in a world where fantasy has become mundane. Chris Pratt and Tom Holland will play two elf brothers setting out on a journey to rekindle the magic together. Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (voice of Princess Atta in A Bug’s Life!) will also join the cast.
