Since I was a kid, watching Disney movies has been a favorite past time. I love how movies can take you to new places, help you learn more about yourself and your feelings, and how they can make you forget about your problems from the day. Movies bring people together during hard times, and Disney + Pixar’s Onward is no different. I am excited to share that Walt Disney Studios announced today that Disney + Pixar’s ONWARD will be available to buy digitally and on Movies Anywhere beginning today at and on Disney+ on April 3rd in the U.S.! So snuggle up on the couch tonight, order Onward on Digital, print the free coloring pages and activities for the kids below, and spend some quality time together.
In Disney + Pixar’s ONWARD, 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, 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.
Did you know that Disney + Pixar’s Onward premiered in theaters on March 6th and earned rave reviews from audiences, including a 95% Verified Audience Score on RottenTomatoes? With cinemas currently impacted by closures due to the global health crisis, I am so excited to announce that Disney is offering the film ahead of schedule to purchase on digital platforms in the U.S. beginning today for $19.99!
“While we’re looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes,” said Dan Scanlon (Director, “Onward”) and Kori Rae (Producer, “Onward”).
