Parent Review: Onward

We've been looking forward to this one, and it did not disappoint.

Pixar’s Onward is about two elf brothers (voiced by Marvel heroes Christ Pratt and Tom Holland) who happens upon a magical spell to bring back their dead father for a single day.

Unfortunately, something went horribly wrong and only his bottom half came back – prompting the brothers to go on a buddy adventure filled with a pixie gang chase scene, an Indiana Jones-esque dungeon, and a battle against a fire-breathing rock dragon!

This movie is about family and love. There were a few dangling expletives (“what the…” and “son of a…”) as well as a couple of scenes where “dang” was used. There are some tense scenes including the above-mentioned chase scene as well as a painfully sad climax which involve sacrifice.

Overall this is classic Pixar – the characters are unforgettable, and the story is emotional with an overall positive message.

Braeden’s final verdict: “I give it 6 stars (out of 5)!”

Braeden’s favorite part: “My favorite was when they were able to bring their dad back even just for a little bit.”
