Tom Holland and Chris Pratt play elves in Pixar’s animated fantasy adventure “Onward.” In the movie, the brothers attempt to resurrect their late father for just 24 hours using a magic wand. The film explores the relationships between brothers, fathers to sons, and mothers to sons. Pratt tells Yahoo Entertainment, “This is kind of that ‘Field of Dreams.’ Men will cry.” He goes on to say, “I think it’s important for young boys to start learning emotional intelligence.These are healthy and natural things.”
Writer-director Dan Scanlon’s personal experience of losing his father at a young age inspired the movie. “Luckily everyone at Pixar is super supportive and encouraging for filmmakers to be vulnerable.”
“Onward” is in theaters on Friday, March 6.
