Magic doesn’t get it wrong. -Barley

Disney Pixar’s Onward movie is finally here for all to see! If you’ve been long waiting for this movie, now is the chance to get to the theaters to see it. This movie is definitely about family, magic, life lessons, and how two brothers bond. Take the entire family to see it and check out my full review below along with the movie trailer.

Onward Movie Review

True Connection Between Brothers

I love that Disney showed the true connection between Barley and Ian throughout the film. They definitely had their moments throughout the film of sibling rivalry but mostly got along with each other and worked together showing true friendship. Their single mom, Laurel did a great job of raising them and being the best she could be. Raising two boys myself left me with all sorts of feels after watching it. 

Life Lessons

There were a lot of unexpected paths that got in the way on their journey and that is showing how real life is and sometimes you need to stand up to them. at the beginning of the film Ian was shy and had no confidence but overcame it with the help of his brother Barley and regained it. There are so many other life lessons throughout the film but those stood out to me the most.

My Thoughts

I thought the movie was great and think families will love it. There is lots of magic and wizardry stuff if your kids like that. You will laugh and cry so adults be warned that you will probably need some tissues as the ending is a tear jerker for most. All in all this movie will make you appreciate your family even more when you leave.


When 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, they 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 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. Directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae, Disney and Pixar’s “Onward” opens in U.S. theaters on March 6, 2020.
