Onward Full Movie
Set in a suburban fantasy world, two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, go on a journey to discover if there is still a little magic left out there in order to spend one last day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.
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 realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior — aka The Manticore — and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.

This is genuinely the single most amazing animated film I have ever seen- sure, it falls into some common laugh-inducing tropes (angry bikers, magical and mundane mishaps forcing characters to do things they were shown to struggle with) but in my opinion, they only added to the charm.
Seeing characters escape tight situations and end up bettering themselves for it is something that I think is super important for children (and teens) to see- even if they struggle they can do amazing things.
This said, the whole film is not a simple cliched flick, the story is engaging (more than many adult-aimed blockbusters I’ve seen) and while I won’t spoil anything, the ending is not what you expect from a children’s film- or even most films aimed at adults.
It doesn’t do what you expect it to all the time, so it keeps feeling new and refreshing. Even if a character doesn’t get what they thought they wanted, they learn what they need to.
I, for one, am beyond excited to see what Dan Scanlon has in store next, if it’s even half as good as Onward is it’s gonna be better than most of the movies out there in my eyes.
Highly recommended for the whole family, but it does involve aspects of parental death as the wiki will tell you, though more importantly the theme I take away from the film is one of brotherly love- whether you have one or simply wished you had one, if you are hit hard by familial relationships then expect to choke up a little at least!
