There’s a very special place in my heart for Onward. It was the last film I watched in a cinema before Lockdown started. I won’t go on too much about it, but I must’ve cried seven or eight times during it. Something about it just clicked with me and I loved everything about it. It also holds up to a second viewing (although I only cried a couple of times this time).

Here’s the release from Disney:
London, U.K. (September 14, 2020) – Disney and Pixar’s magical story “Onward” will be available on Friday 2nd October on Disney+ in the UK and Ireland.
In “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.
