When teenage brothers unexpectedly get the chance to spend one more day with their passed father, they go on a strange mission in Aaron’s heady Guinevere van. Like any good adventure, along the way you will encounter magic spells, enigmatic maps, insurmountable obstacles and discoveries that break the limits of imagination.

When the boys’ brave mother discovers the boys are missing, she joins forces with an ex-warrior who happens to be part lion, part bat, and part Scorpio—and sets out to find them. If you don’t take into account the dangerous curses lurking along the way, the day promises to be a real adventure that will exceed even their wildest dreams.

Directed by Dan Scanlon. The original voice actors are Tom Holland, Chris Pratt and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

For media educator

Disney-Pixar’s Onward is an animated film made based on traditional adventure stories and fantasy imagery that lets the imagination fly. The characters are mythical creatures familiar with mythology, fantasy and folklore, who have become lazy with the comforts of modern life and have forgotten magic. The main characters are the neighborhood elf brothers who throw themselves into a surprising adventure.

What makes them relatable is that they have insecurities and internal pressures just like human teenagers. The central theme of the film is finding one’s own (magical) powers – the courage to be yourself, to believe in your abilities and to recognize your strengths. You can find your hidden strengths with the help of others’ encouragement. The characters have their mutual difficulties, but in the moment of need, they discover the value of each other and the power of cooperation.

The story progresses in the style of role-playing and fantasy games by solving puzzles. The things you learn about yourself and others during the journey are more important than the destination. The message is clear: it is important to find your path, but also trust others. Underneath the humorous adventure, the red thread is loss and grief and how to deal with them. With the help of the film, you can talk with the child about facing and accepting difficult things, and about how unresolved issues can remain a problem. (Source
