Ready to cast a spell on box offices this weekend is Disney/Pixar’s Onward, directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, both of whom worked on 2013’s Monsters University

New Mushroomton looks like your average, everyday town, but instead of being populated with people, it’s occupied by a variety of mythical creatures, including elves, gnomes, mermaids, dragons, unicorns, centaurs, and sprites. At the center of the film is Ian Lightfoot (voiced by Tom Holland, Spider-Man: Far From Home), a young elf that’s a little unsure of himself. He’s grown up with his mom Laurel (voiced by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep) and his loud and brash older brother Barley (voiced by Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy), who has a soft spot for their town’s supposed magical history.
