Onward (April 3)

Surprise! Thanks to the coronavirus outbreak shutting down most movie theaters in March, Disney decided to release its latest Pixar theatrical film, Onward, well ahead of schedule on Disney Plus. The movie is set in a fantasy land where magic once ruled, but it’s now almost gone. Two elf brothers, voiced by Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, discover a magic gem that brought back the bottom half of their dead father. They can bring back the top half, and speak to their deceased dad, but only if they find another magic gem within a day.
