Onward Summary and Synopsis

In Disney and Pixar’s Onward, two teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad and embark 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 that 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. In a suburban fantasy world, two teenage elf brothers embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Onward Wiki

I love this movie soooo much.It is pretty much like my abamitabol review. The movie is full of sadness,family and happynes. Well I don’t remember all of it. But anyway you should read my abamitabol review.💋

- Another sublime Pixar Treat5 star

It’s a fun uplifting film for all ages, as is usual for the creative team at Pixar. Very funny and moving, and great for discussion with, friends, life partner, and kids.

- OORAH‼️5 star

I am a 36 year old Marine Corp Veteran and father of five. I purchased this movie for the kiddos and they loved it. One day I overheard some of the guys on the construction site talking about how great this movie was and I told them that I hadn’t gotten around to watching it yet. So I went home and watched it with the wife and kids and... wow‼️ This was such a wonderful movie. I didn’t expect it to be as great as it is. I will definitely watch this again and again.

- Onward we go!5 star

Surprised at mature content in a Disney movie

This is so good.

- From start to finish... this movie was A CLASS!5 star

Loved it!

- Best5 star


- Love love love!5 star

Okay so some people are saying the ending was not fair. The reason Barley was the one meeting him again was if you were listening Barley never got to say goodbye when his dad was dying in the first place. This movie was great! I recommend it.

- Great5 star

Better then you expect. One of Pixar’s best

For iphone playing movie, please?

- It’s streaming on Disney plus already.5 star

Great movie

- Brilliant Movie5 star

I absolutely loved this film. I found it hilarious, thought provoking and the moral of the story was profound. I really enjoyed this film, and I would definitely recommend you watch it. I watched the film via Disney Plus but then came here to buy it! Beginning was slow, and the end... I could understand why a few were disappointed . I thought it was deliberate, to emphasize the moral of the story. At least that is my take on this film. It’s a beautiful story in my opinion but you can check it out yourself! :)

- Love onward5 star

It was sooooooooooooooooooo amazing

- Awful1 star

Worst Disney movie to date.

- Now we will find out.3 star

In the book “Creativity Inc.” Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace say that the employees of Pixar don’t want to be the first to make a film that isn’t number 1. I don’t know if “Onward” was number 1 at the box office but it is no where close to what Pixar has been capable of in the past. This movies has many of the elements that have made past Pixar films amazing but completely lacks the basis in reality that provides authenticity. Most of the emotion is missing. There are touching moments but no intensity. I hope Pixar can recover from this film to get back to the quality they normally create. Maybe too much of the brain trust that innovated that quality is gone.

- I loved it!5 star

I really loved it! It’s too bad that it didn’t do well at the box but thankfully it came to Disney plus! It’s a fun story that brings you along for a ride the whole way through.

- It’s just ok3 star

Not Pixar’s best I seen many movies like this before very predictable the animation is great and the acting of Chris Pratt and Tom Holland was fantastic

- made my ugly cry5 star

such an incredible movie

- I loved it5 star

Such a great movie for kids and adults to watch 100% recommend you to watch it!!

- Heartfelt5 star

People leaving bad reviews listen up, the main point is that this has some good, emotional parts and a the journey of learning friendships and parenthood can come from siblings and not everyone realizes what the other is going through. This movie showed that siblings can get to a great friendship in their lives if they just open up and let the other one in and understand perspective. I ‘m happy Disney is working towards more meaningful movies that hit deep.


The not fair thing is that barley met dad just not the other brother 😡😡😡😭😭😩

- Great All Around!5 star

Pixar outdid themselves with the animation! The story is captivating and heartwarming. Very enjoyable movie!

A beautiful, adventurous story with a powerful ending and message.

The movie isn’t that good... no one has watched more than 5 minutes at our house. I don’t understand the 5 star reviews. It’s not entertaining

It was worth it for me. You can tell it's a Pixar movie.

The movie was really sad but I enjoyed it

- Wonderful, emotional, great message and story.5 star

I think we all need a little more magic in our lives.

- All but the ending...4 star

I felt like the ending was lacking a punch. The voiceover works is outstanding and Pixar makes some of the best movies.. period. I found this one entertaining but I wanted the end to feel a bit more complete. Four stars because I didn’t hate the ending.

- Weekend At Bernie’s Disney-Style2 star

My kids said it wasn’t the best.

- Awesome5 star

I loved it! Another great from Pixar

- Onward.2 star

I think onward is the best movie ever. It is about magic. The teenage boys are trying to bring their dad back.

- Graaaaat5 star

I like it

- Loved by all5 star

Despite leaving the kids a bit teary and emotional all three of our kids absolutely loved this movie. Never before have they asked us to leave a review but “5 stars” were given to this one by all of our viewers.

Terrible ending which ruined the whole movie for me.

- Onward5 star

This movie is the best animation movie I have ever seen and plus, I love Tom Holland

- Must see5 star

I absolutely loved this movie. Reminded me of my relationship of me and my brother and how much I missed my dad. Wow I’m still touched by the message.

- Ok🤷🏼‍♀️4 star

I liked the movie but I think it would have been a nicer ending and not so sad if the dad came back and then stayed with the boys and their mom forever that would have been much happier of an ending.

- Best Pixar movie in a while 😍❤️❤️🌟⭐️✨🍿5 star

Watched this with my sons who are 5 years and 9 years old. They loved it. I loved it! The past couple Pixar movies I’ve not been impressed with. This one was super cute. Wish I would’ve bought it and not rented it.

gamergirl1232490 - Not too bad5 star

The movie was pretty good but not sure if many little kids would like to watch it. Many big events in the movie that kinda make it better. But i get why many people dont like it.

alrirmcmaocm - Good meaning to the story4 star

Held off on seeing this in theatres as I was skeptical that I'd enjoy it. It's now on Disney+ and I quite enjoyed it and the meaning of spending quality time with who you do have around you. I was willing to rent it soon if I didn't see that Disney+ had it.

ricky753 - 10/10!5 star

my favourite movie from Pixar in 2020 so far!

Icantbelieveitsnot.... - Great family time Movie5 star

Releasing it with nothing allowed in Theatres is a bold and welcomed move. Thanks for the decision to help families entertain their flock through these times. This film is all about family and needed right about now. To realize who and what really matters is paramount. And, unlike some reviewers I thought the end was fitting. They learned about themselves and each other and grew as humans to make this world a better and yes, more magical place. And who wouldn’t give anything for a minute with a loved one? I know I would. It brought some moisture to this guys sockets.

Nilok84 - Why split the French and English versions?5 star

Good movie, but why not offer the French and English tracks on one listing?

Awesomemoviereviews - This is the most I’ve cried during a Pixar film5 star

This movie spoke to me. I have a very close relationship with my brother and by the end of this movie I was crying so much. Incredible, beautiful, go see it right away!

Dfvdfgghjjh - Onward!5 star

This film is a beautiful journey that gets the viewers standing through every second! The journey these 2 brothers make is heartwarming which includes all those “cringy” moments! Definitely worth every penny and second! 🤩👍🏼🧙🏻‍♂️🧚🏼‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️

CHECK OUTS!!! - Amazing5 star


Lovely soundtrack - pixar at its finest5 star

the past couple years, pixar has been lacking in the same magic that they once created. i feel that they have brought that magic back. the film doesn’t try to push emotion in your face. it’s a feel good movie that makes you feel grateful for what you have.

I really liked this movie so much.And I hope that you can make a Onward 2 .My favorite part was when they battled the dragon.The saddest part to me when the kid didn’t get to see his dad.

Beaver7979 - Was great5 star

Was great and kids love it

hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii😄 - Weow5 star

This movie’s so good I wish I could have a sibling it has a heartfelt meaning and everything

k14movifan - PIXAR, the same as usual...4 star

The film was okay, I expected more. When they said they would be making a film with Fantasy- modern elements, I knew this would be interesting. I also knew what the film might have, humor, emotion, and dazzling animation. When I watched the movie on Disney+ I loved the way they made this movie and Tom and Chris together, they are hilarious! Although the film needed more emotion and more of the dad even though the relationship between the brothers were charming, this movie was little below average compared to other Pixar movies.

TheNemo-7 - Mind blowing5 star

It’s all about lovely relationship between 2 brothers . This is a Pixar’s one of all time best.

IndigoMagic - I love this movie so much5 star

I cried. It’s just so well done

Singerwantobe - Movie is ok but can’t see it in 4K1 star

Disappointed in quality of movie. 4K is so much better. I can rent and buy 4K all the time but not this one. Don’t do money grab for rerelease in 4K, just get out originally in 4K

Danica Marsh - Onward5 star

Just saw the movie on Disney +. In I loved the movie. I hope Disney makes a another movie like this. It had everything in the movie that is Disney.

ghjxwriobcdrin - Amazing5 star

Haven’t even seen it but it’s annoying people are saying they don’t like the movie because someone is gay in it

scoobydoogeek - You got to watch this5 star

This is one of the best Pixar movies I have ever t

granny gertrude - Sorry5 star

I saw people writing critiques about it having a gay person in it and that being “against the Bible” like where does it say that in there. God won’t condemn people for being gay, and that’s just facts.

PiggyBank919 - Yet another magical touching adventure5 star

...that teaches you about important relationships in your life that you might just miss out on searching for some lofty ideal. Beautifully done; worth the buy.

creighton pickle - Onward5 star

How do you watch it for free please get me to I’m dying to see it

nenegenovese - On ward5 star

I never watch it but did you watch it make sore 5 fives stars 🌟 are here. Love is only what you need for days.

Films98 - Very moving5 star

I got the opportunity to enjoy this masterpiece in theaters the week it released. I wasn’t all in, because the trailers didn’t get me excited. As soon as the awesome soundtrack came on I knew this was a hit. Of course it made me cry, it wouldn’t be a Pixar film if it didn’t, but it also made me value family way more. Also the Maggie short film was amazing, but I don’t think it belongs in the front of this, the new shorts on Disney plus should be used instead.

elijir - Great movie!5 star

Really enjoyed it!

Nestor Villegas - SPANISH AUDIO PLEASE5 star

The movie in Spanish is great so please make it available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ilistentomusic(obviously) - One of Pixar’s greatest5 star

Amazingly animated, a humorous and thoroughly entertaining ride from start to finish, Onward stands out as one of Pixar’s best works. With a finish that showcases the company’s signature highly touching and emotional sequence (NEARLY made me cry), it will remembered for a long time. 9/10

BeaChyMe ;) - 10 stars ⭐️5 star

The Dillon fan 13 3 - Love the film5 star

Funniest movie I’ve seen

rebelndisguise - LOVED LOVED LOVED5 star

I admittedly teared up a couple of times. Even my boyfriend who had 0 interest in watching ended up loving the movie!

DutchThirteen - Underrated!5 star

I loved this movie. Really well written and as always Pixar hits all those heart stings. It has a little bit of everything that a family will enjoy. You’ll be laughing and crying. You won’t regret this purchase! Plus Tom Holland and Chris Pratt are the bomb!

CESSNALUVER175 - Disney does it again!5 star

My friend and I saw Onward before the Coronavirus outbreak and it was one of the best animated movies I have ever seen. I thought it was gonna be very emotional as some Disney movies are dealing with the loss of a parent (I was a little teary eyed at the end when Ian and Barley finally meet their dad) but it was so awesome. Can’t wait to watch it on Disney Plus!

ating uwant - Onward5 star

It was a good movie but it was very sad but over all I would give it 5 stars

Brobostyn - Well there is secrets in the movie2 star

So it is a good movie but there are secrets in it like there is a star to get though and they throw there dad down there to step on it and let them out that is just sellfish not fair to there dad that star is from gravity falls so weird😱 mind blowing do you know when they go to find the Phoenix gem they put a note on the door that says BE BACK WITH MIND BLOWING SUPRISE Look at it closely it says in really small letters dad will be back

Anju Miguel - A fun-filled, weird and wonderful fantasy film!4 star

This is a fun-filled fantasy that is weird and wonderful film. This story deals with the difference between suburban life with technology and traditional life. In it, two elf brothers follow their magical quest to find out about their father who passed away when they were young. It’s a wonderful film because everyone can learn life and death with light-hearted humor.

Fedoras & Pugs - 😊🙂😕😐🤔😮😭🙂4 star

This movie isn’t bad I had a few laughs, I cried and enjoyed the animation 😍 but idk it was missing something, that ✨ spark that great Pixar movies have 🤩....it was entertaining but idk if it was the characters or how the story moved along, definitely missing that ✨that would have made it a great movie

westefer402 - Really?1 star

Not even being released in 4K? What a cash grab taking advantage of the people stuck at home in quarantine. I’ll wait until this is released in better quality with bonus features. Hard pass Disney but nice try.

Mgiller - Not playing by cast to tv.2 star

I have 50 movies bought through Apple, each work and can be cast to a Visio tv with internet. Accept Onward. Message I get: video in this format cannot be streamed to this tv. Wish I could have watched the film in my living room with my kids.

It was such a fun and imaginative movie to watch with the whole family! It was a nice balance of funny and serious, neither was over the top.

Great job at an original and heartwarming family movie! You will cry happy tears!😊

Not the best far from worst Pixar flick. It’s early release to download is a smart move by Disney since theaters are shut down. Get more of out money Disney and Apple.
