At Brazil’s Comic Con Experience (CCXP) over the past weekend, attendees were treated to clips of Onward. Deadline reports that one bit of new footage was screened, where Ian and Barley meet biker pixies, who have only appeared briefly in the film’s trailer. Check out the latest image of the elf brothers below.
Dan Scanlon also spoke some more about the film’s inspiration, which he drew from his own experience. Ian and Barley growing up without their father mirrors Scanlon and his older brother as well. They were both still babies when their father passed away, so neither remember him. But they were able to hear their father’s voice on a recording, which was also played at CCXP. Scanlon described it as magical. So it’s no wonder that there’s a scene in the film of Ian listening to his father’s voice on a cassette tape. It’s so lovely that Scanlon could hold onto that memory and build an entire film around it.
Onward cometh to theaters on March 6, 2020.
