I Just Watched The New Onward Trailer And Um, Dad Only Has Half A Body? Lawd Have Mercy!

by Shaye Wyllie

Pixar released Onward Trailer 2 this morning and I scrambled home to watch it after dropping my daughter off to school! Lol

Yup … I’m still a big kid, and animations are my absolute FAVE! Plus anything that has Pixar or Disney attached to it, is always magical, so this was a no brainier! I do have to say though … I never saw trailer 1, so I had NO clue what this movie would be about until I watched the second trailer. Lol But now I can’t WAIT for March 2020!

Here’s what I thought of the new trailer …

There are unicorns in Onward Trailer 2 … and that’s all you need to know!

Okay, not ALL … but what else could be more important? Lol

I was a little shocked that they didn’t seem as friendly as we make unicorns seem! So I can’t wait to see them in the movie! Cause in this clip they seemed kind of mean.

However, you should also know that, this may be triggering for kids who don’t have dad around.

Onward Trailer 2 is emotional! Especially if you’re a single mom! Watching a kid say “I wish I knew dad” is a cue for the dramatic waterfalls on this end. Lol (Despite my kid KNOWING who her dad is!) So I can only imagine what this would be like for kids who don’t know who their dad is, or who don’t see them often.

I’m hoping that the magic of Disney and Pixar will be enough to distract them! But I’ve worked with kids long enough to KNOW that even if they don’t voice it, they could very well be thinking it! So I’m a little worried, but hopeful that Disney will get this right!

Onward Trailer 2 Review

I’m also excited about all the magic in this movie!

Like literal magic, not Disney fairy dust magic. Lol To know me is to know that I love anything that has magic in it, so I can’t wait to see this!

Had someone told me Onward had magic in it months ago, I probably woulda watched trailer one! Lol

Oh and the quote, “there’s no magic like family” really stood out to me in this trailer! So yeah … I’m hopeful that Disney and Pixar got this right! Lol Because I already know my kid is gonna wanna see this. And the older she gets, the more she understands, and the more worried I am for her. So we’ll see!

(I’ll show her the trailer tonight and let her do a reaction video, which I’ll upload to my channel so you guys can check it out later!)

But can we discuss dad’s half of a body for a second?

Where the hell do they come up with this shit? Lol

And WHO came up with the idea to have a “half loaded” dad walking around? No seriously, WHO! Cause I’d like to meet them and talk to them! No kidding!

As crazy as I think this concept is, I absolutely LOVE the fact that it’s different! It kind of reminds me of a website where the page hasn’t fully loaded yet. Lol

Hopefully this man, sorry elf, without his entire torso and head doesn’t creep any of the little kids out! Lol But since it’s funny and light hearted, not creepy and dark, I doubt it’ll be an issue.

Onward Trailer 2 Review

Onward will be in theaters on March 6th, 2020.

Which is two days after my daughter’s 8th birthday, so I can’t WAIT! There’s usually always a good movie out during her birthday weekend, so I’ll definitely take her to see it. Of course, unless we get to see it before her birthday! Lol That way we can go to Disney World or something that weekend. Lol (Shhhh, don’t tell her!)

About The Movie

Onward is an upcoming American, computer-animated, urban fantasy, comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures. It was written and directed by Dan Scanlon, produced by Kori Rae, and stars Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer as the main voices. The film also stars Ali Wong, Lena Waithe, Mel Rodriguez, Bonnie Hunt and John Ratzenberger.

(And after watching Queen and Slim, I’m super excited to see Lena in this!)

Onward is set in a magical world populated with elves, trolls, mermaids, centaurs, fauns, satyrs, unicorns, gnomes, sprites, goblins, fairies, cyclops and all other mystical creatures. This world, however, where fairy tale was once the reality, is losing its sense of magic.

Since using magic isn’t an easy skill to master, the populace instead worked on getting by with science-created answers, and using modern-day machines such as mobile phones and cars instead of magic. (Oh the horror! Lol)

Two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, find themselves embarking on a quest to discover if there is still some magic left in the world so that they can spend one day with their father, who had died when they were both too young to remember him. Using a magic staff they received as a prearranged gift from their father and prompted by Barley, Ian has tried to bring him back by using a spell that will do it for 24 hours only for Ian to bring back just his legs, causing both of them to find a way to bring back the rest of him before the 24 hours are up.
