Pixar released four new character posters on Dec. 16, revealing three new characters. In celebration of the 50-day countdown until the launch of the movie, Pixar released another three new Onward character posters on Jan. 16, featuring the trash panda-esque unicorns, the legs-only father and three pink pixies.
The Disney-owned studio dropped the first trailer in May, and we got a small glimpse of Onward footage during Disney’s D23 Expo in August. A more expansive trailer finally launched on Oct. 10, showing more details about the brothers’ quest to restore their father using the wizard’s staff.
Disney announced in mid-December that a new trailer would be dropping soon. Pixar then showed off the second trailer for Onward on Dec. 17, showing the brothers getting quest advice from the manticore in a diner, including a map and a gem. Unfortunately, she forgot to tell them about the curse, and she sets off on a rescue mission with the boys’ mother.
It’s also revealed in the second trailer that their father wrote the spell himself so he could see who his boys grow up to be. “He wanted to meet you more than anything,” their mother tells Ian.
