Pixar Animation Studios’ Onward had it’s world premiere tonight and the first reactions have come out and it looks like it’s another win for the studio.
Take a look at some of the early social media reactions down below:
In a surprise to no one @Pixar has delivered yet another great film with #onward. 3rd act brought some tears. Congrats to @MrDanScanlon and everyone that worked on the film. Absolutely recommended. pic.twitter.com/lx45NUdtsY

“ONWARD” is the adventure movie of the year.
Hilarious, magical and crazy fun!
I loved every minute of it.

For someone who has lost a father, #Onward hit me in the feels in ways I wasn’t expecting. Sure, it’s about magic but even more so it’s about the bonds of family and how love can bring people together in the most unexpected of ways.

.@Pixar's #Onward was so lovely! I wish there was more marketing for it. #dungeonsanddragons fans are going to love it, and so will everyone else. There are trash unicorns, you guys! TRASH UNICORNS! Seriously, go see this! #trashunicorns #iveneverlovedahashtagmore pic.twitter.com/L3bNmHyVp0

#Onward’s not my favorite Pixar movie, nor is it the studio’s best, but it is a story that will resonate with many. Definitely some laughs and a good time all around. If you’re a fan of RPGs, this one’s for you.

We got to see #PixarOnward and here’s what you need to know:
✨it’s incredibly sweet
✨it’s very funny
✨it has the first openly LGBT character in Pixar history*
✨it’s emotional terrorism for anyone who is a dad, has a dad, has had a dad, or wants a dad. Bring tissues pic.twitter.com/Q2ndIZ6JUK

I will be seeing the film this Saturday so I will make sure to share my social media reaction over at @SkylerShuler on Twitter, and have a full review here at The DisInsider early next week, so stay tuned.
When teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Marvel alums 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.
Directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and produced by Kori Rae, Disney and Pixar’s Onward opens in theaters on March 6, 2020. The film is based on Scanlon’s personal experiences with his brother.
