Yet Another Full-Length Trailer for Pixar's Fantasy Adventure 'Onward'

Onward Movie Trailer

"I told them about the map! I told them about the gem! I told them about the curse!" Disney has released one more official US trailer for Pixar's Onward - their next big movie, both written and directed by Dan Scanlon (of Monsters University). This is technically the fourth trailer we've posted, including the original teaser and another international trailer recently. Onward is set in a "suburban fantasy world" and follows these two elf brothers who could not be more unalike. Tom Holland voices Ian Lightfoot, and Chris Pratt voices his brother Barney Lightfoot. The only other main voices listed include Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The two brothers embark on a quest to discover if there is still magic out there. The more we see of this, the better it looks, though each trailer seems even wackier than the last. But I'm still onboard.

Embark on a Quest in Another New Trailer for Pixar's 'Onward' Movie

"We're going on a quest!" Disney has revealed another official international trailer for Pixar's Onward, their next original project that's both written and directed by Dan Scanlon (of Monsters University). This new Pixar movie arrives in theaters March, coming up in just a few months, their first of two original movies out next year (Soul being the other). Onward is set in a "suburban fantasy world" and follows these two elf brothers who could not be more unalike. Tom Holland voices Ian Lightfoot, and Chris Pratt voices his brother Barney Lightfoot. The only other main voices listed include Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The two brothers embark on a quest to discover if there is still magic out there. Now with the big reveal of the half-father pants thing out of the way, they can finally give us a taste of what else is going on in this. And I'm very, very curious. The more we see, the better this looks - which is usually the case with Pixar.

First Teaser Trailer for Pixar's 'Soul' Movie From Director Pete Docter

Soul Teaser Trailer

"What would you want to be known for on Earth? Don't waste your time on all the junk of life…!" Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Pixar's Soul, their other original animated movie coming up next year following Onward. Soul opens later in the summer 2020 after Onward hits theaters in the spring. Soul is director Pete Docter's follow-up to Inside Out, this time personifying the "soul" inside of all of us. Docter says he was inspired by the day his son was born, noticing that he already had a personality. "It was pretty clear that we’re all born with a very unique, specific sense of who we are." Soul is about a jazz musician who has lost his passion for music is transported out of his body and must find his way back with the help of an infant soul learning about herself. With the voices of Jamie Foxx as Joe, Tina Fey as "22" (another soul), Daveed Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, and Ahmir-Khalib Thompson. This is such a wonderful introductory teaser. Short and sweet, gets right to the point, gives us a first look at the main characters. Excited for this.

The plot reveal in this trailer - about the half man revival - is a bit wacky and just makes me think of Weekend at Bernie's. Maybe this will be fun? Check it out below.

Review: Pixar's Latest Sequel 'Toy Story 4' Plays With Your Emotions

Pixar's Toy Story 4 Review

Pixar's original Toy Story (1995) movie was a major milestone in filmmaking. It was nominated for three Oscars (Best Original Screenplay; Best Original Song; Best Original Score), and two Golden Globes (Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical; Best Original Song). Director John Lasseter won a special achievement award from The Academy "for the development and inspired application of techniques that have made possible the first feature-length computer-animated film." Made by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures, Toy Story was a massive commercial success, launching toys (of course), video games, theme park attractions, spin-offs, and two fantastic sequels — Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010). Now, after creating the perfect animated trilogy, Pixar & Disney are extending – and perhaps concluding – the franchise with Toy Story 4, a very weird, melancholic epilogue to the series and to childhood itself.

This new Pixar movie (following Toy Story 4 this summer), out in theaters March of 2020, is set in a "suburban fantasy world" and follows two elf brothers who could not be more unalike. Tom Holland voices Ian Lightfoot, and Chris Pratt voices his brother Barney Lightfoot. The only other voice cast announced so far includes Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. This is a fun introduction to a story described as Lord of the Rings meets John Hughes. I was not expecting Pixar to get into magical fantasy, but I can dig it.

"We have to make sure nothing happens to Forky." Disney + Pixar have unveiled the final official trailer for Toy Story 4, following a bunch of TV spots and trailers over the last few months. Opening in theaters in exactly one month. When a new toy called "Forky" joins Woody and the gang, a road trip alongside old and new friends reveals how big the world can be for a toy… Pixar's emotional sequel looks like it builds on the ideas from Toy Story 3, taking us on another journey outside of the home when Forky tries to break free. All the regular voices are back: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, and Bonnie Hunt, with newcomers Keegan Michael-Key & Jordan Peele, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves as Duke Caboom, and Tony Hale as Forky. Pixar doesn't have the best track record with trailers, but I'm still looking forward to this movie. It might just hit all the right notes and be satisfying in unexpected ways.

Watch: Pixar's SparkShorts Film 'Kitbull' About a Kitten and a Pit Bull

Kitbull Short Film

Awww. Another adorable, heartwarming short from Pixar. The animation studio has unveiled the third short film as part of their exciting SparkShorts program, featuring innovative and creative short films made at the studio by first-time filmmakers. Following the first two shorts, Purl, and Smash and Grab, this new one is about an unexpected friendship. Kitbull is about a fiercely independent stray kitten and a big pit bull. Together, they experience friendship for the first time. The animation style for this one is much than Pixar's usual work, utilizing a hand-drawn look instead of Pixar's typical 3D rendered style. It reminds me of old Disney animated films. And it has that same charm and authenticity with the story. This might be one of my favorite Pixar shorts they've ever made, it's just lovely and amusing and so cute. Watch Kitbull in full below.

Watch: Pixar's SparkShorts Film 'Smash and Grab' About Two Robots

Smash and Grab Short Film

Yes!! Pixar made a short film about robots?! Awesome. The latest SparkShorts film from Pixar Animation Studios is titled Smash and Grab, and it's available online for viewing for free now. Just last week they launched the first short online - Purl directed by Kristen Lester - and they've followed it up with this one being released next. From director Brian Larsen, Smash and Grab is a tale of two robots. After years of toiling away inside the engine room of a towering locomotive, two antiquated robots will risk everything for freedom and for each other. This definitely feels like it fits right into the Wall-E universe, and the sound design is especially amazing and a key part of the characters. I am totally loving these SparkShorts, they're superbly entertaining and unique and clever. I hope they keep this program going for a while. Watch below.

Watch: Pixar's First SparkShorts Film 'Purl' Directed by Kristen Lester

Purl Short Film

"Let's bring finance in and knit our strategies together." Pixar has debuted the first charming, provocative short film as part of their new SparkShorts program online today - for free for everyone to watch. And it's worth a watch, for sure! The short is titled Purl, and it's about a pink ball of yarn that gets hired at a startup. From Pixar: "An earnest ball of yarn named Purl gets a job at a fast-paced, high energy, male centric start-up. Things start to unravel as she tries to fit in with this close knit group. Purl must ask herself how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for and in the end is it worth it?" Directed by Kristen Lester, and featuring the voice of Bret 'Brook' Parker as Purl. It's a fantastic little short about workplace discrimination and giving people a chance beyond their appearances. I really, really like that Pixar is making these shorts and releasing them online right away. See the full short below + a making of featurette. Enjoy.
