This week has been a wild ride of self-quarantining and homeschooling, so we are thrilled to share some good news with the early release of Disney’s Onward.
Available digitally and on Movies Anywhere starting today at 5:00pm PST/ 8:00pm EST and on Disney+ on April 3rd. With cinemas currently impacted by closures due to the global health crisis, Disney will offer the film ahead of schedule to purchase on digital platforms in the U.S. beginning today at 5:00pm PST /8:00pm EST for $19.99.
The girls and I saw it when it first came out and loved watching the story of the teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) who had an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. But when the boys’ fearless mom Laurel (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior – aka The Manticore (voice of Octavia Spencer) – and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.
Enjoy even more Onward fun with your family by enjoying these fun activity sheets.
