The film is also directed by 'Monsters University's' Dan Scalon
Octavia Spencer, who appeared in Oscar winning film The Shape of Water, will also feature in the film, which is set for release in March 2020.
In a press release, Disney described the plot of the film: “Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney-Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.”
Monster’s University director Dan Scanlon will direct the film, described as a “suburban fantasy.” Kori Rae, meanwhile, will produce.
Speaking about his directorial role, Scanlon said: “At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth…This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
Reaction to the film filled social media earlier this evening:
After debuting divisive new character Forky in a previous trailer, the second look at the anticipated Pixar sequel features two more characters.
In the meta clip, the pair are seen voicing new characters Ducky and Bunny, who appear to live at a funfair sideshow.
As the pair break the fourth wall, they discuss their apparent love of Toy Story and even struggle to remember Buzz Lightyear’s most famous catchphrase – right up to the point where the man himself enters alongside Woody.
