We got our first real look at the movie back in May, but the new trailer fleshes things out a bit further. These two magical creatures have abandoned all hope of a "magical" life, and instead eke out a mundane existence in the suburbs. They're looking for a way to bring some magic back into their lives, and they find it – just in one of the most unexpected ways possible.
The elf brothers receive a special gift by their father that will allow him to return to life one day. But, as in all great Disney and Pixar movies, something goes wrong. This sends both elf brothers on a journey to find the literal head and torso that belonged to their father, all the while traveling with a certain part of him: his legs. Suddenly, things definitely seem a lot less mundane, don't they?
It looks like the movie's got a fun twist to it as well, so there's more than just the whole typical "teenagers finding themselves vibe." It's more like a Pixar take on Weekend at Bernie's, for reasons that will be made clear when you take in the trailer. This new footage does tend to reveal a lot more than what we were first shown, so if you were on the fence about whether you'd be all-in before, hopefully this new sneak peek helps you decide.
Can't wait to see what becomes of this strange journey between the two elf brothers? Get thee to a theater when Onward officially drops as of March 6, 2020.
