Spider-Man & Star-Lord Team Up Again In Pixar’s Onward
How about that? After appearing together in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, Chris Pratt and Tom Holland — Star-Lord and Spider-Man respectively — are teaming up, again.
No, it’s not another MCU film. It’s Pixar’s new flick, Onward.
The new animated feature, which debuts on March 6, features the pair as the voices of two fantastical brothers:
The official plot outline says, “Set in a suburban fantasy world, two teenage elf brothers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, go on a journey to discover if there is still a little magic left out there in order to spend one last day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him.”
And, when asked who they would like to “bring back” from the beyond, Marvel reported that the pair responded in two distinct ways:
Holland revealed that his great-grandfather passed away when his grandfather, Bob, was only 18 months old. Selflessly, he would bring back his great-grandfather so he and Bob would have the opportunity to meet each other.
Pratt shared he would bring back his late dad “who passed away just before Guardians of the Galaxy came out.” Pratt stated, “I would show him Guardians of the Galaxy,” before joking, “if he didn’t like it, I would bring back a known criminal to beat him up on Instagram Live and become popular.”
“If my dad didn’t like Guardians of the Galaxy, I’d be like ‘alright, gee, go back, dad,” continued Pratt.
That sounds pretty true to character for Peter Quill and Peter Parker.
However, it also sounds as if we’ll all need to bring some tissues to the cineplex for Onward.
