Synopsis

Set in a suburban fantasy world where magic still exists but no-one really uses it anymore because of the various technological inventions which have made life more convenient, Ian and Barley Lightfoot are two teenage elf brothers. On Ian’s 16th birthday, the two boys receive a gift from their father – who died of an illness shortly before Ian’s birth – of a magical staff, a rare phoenix gem, and a letter instructing them how to cast a ‘visitation spell’ which will allow their father to be resurrected for a single day. However, when they attempt to cast the difficult spell, it goes wrong, and only the lower half of their father’s body appears. Ian and Barley, along with the legs of their father, must go on a quest to find another phoenix gem in order to complete the spell before it’s too late so that they can say their final goodbyes. ‘Onward’ is a heartfelt animated adventure about grief, moving on, and brotherly love.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
