ABOUT Onward

In the film Onward, Pratt will play the “boisterous and humiliating older brother” character to Holland’s “gawky, more reserved  sober younger sibling.” Louis-Dreyfus comes in as the teen characters’ mom, with this information first being revealed by the People. “Tom Holland is perfect for our film character of Ian, the younger brother,”

Onward writer and director Dan Scanlon, who previously helmed Monsters University, said. “We were looking for someone who could have this shy quality and someone who is good at being a little awkward. And Tom is super great at that! And yet has a genuine sweetness to him that you shall really root for him.”

“We wanted someone who was the exact opposite of that,” Scanlon said of Pratt’s character. “Someone who could be wild, disturbing and chaotic and out of control, but in a very charming and infectious way. And Chris Pratt is absolutely perfect for that. He has this ability to be both sort of wild and out of control but in a really lovable, fun, infectious way on screen.”

There hasn’t been many details regarding the Mom’s character just yet but the director did confirm Holland and Pratt got to work together after having spent some time together on the sets of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

“They are clearly friends,” Scanlon said. “They’ve worked together before and hung out together often. It was fun to sit back and watch them make each other laugh all the time.”


The Onward is set for release on March 6, 2020.
