Pixar has done it again!!! Woohoo! Definitively my Pixar geek heart is full. This movie offers much. In particular, here are 4 Uplifting Onward Movie Moments that I just have to point out. Yes, I am ready to see Onward over and over again at home. Luckily it is now available on Disney Plus and on digital format for purchase. Read on for the special feel-good moments of Pixar!
Feels and Inclusion.
As usual, Pixar ensures we experience all the feels with Onward. You laugh, cheer, feel angry, anxious and hopeful in the span of 30 minutes. And, that is not all. Besides really living this film, the messages are all over the place. In this animated epic adventure, I can’t but help think about total inclusion as I watched it. Horns, teeth, blue, hooves, and tails do not matter. All that matters is in our hearts, truly. Thanks for the reminder Disney-Pixar!
4 Uplifting Onward Movie Moments
So, I did laugh, a lot. There are some great lines in the Onward movie. Also, I cried. Additionally, I experienced uplifting moments that filled my cup.
Guess what, those 4 uplifting Onward movie moments come with Pixar quotes 🙂
- “You will never be ready MERGE!”: and goooooo! I was really pumped with this scene. It was beautiful to watch Ian face his fears and have his brother to cheer and push him, well, onward!
- “Don’t look back just keep moving straight ahead.” to that I can also add “For anything to work you must have confidence in yourself”: I am talking about the invisible bridge scene, of course 🙂 The one where
- “With a little bit of magic you can do anything”: It is beautiful to see Barley have a moment with his dad. Even more underlining is the fact that Ian gives up his moment with his dad so that Barley can say good-bye.
- “With a little bit of magic you can do anything”: and I believe this is the theme of the movie itself. That and the light it sheds over the power of sibling relationships.

In ONWARD, teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. But when the boys’ fearless mom Laurel (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior – aka The Manticore (voice of Octavia Spencer) – and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.
