Monsters University director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae will take on Onward, Pixar’s next project following Toy Story 4, due out next year.
“At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth,” said Scanlon in a statement, per THR. “This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother.”
Onward is set in a suburban fantasy world, and centers on two teen elf brothers who go on a quest to discover if there is still magic left in the world. While we can expect fellow Marvel superheroes Pratt and Holland to play the two brothers, we don’t yet have any news on Louis-Dreyfus and Spencer’s roles.
Pixar’s Onward hits theaters on March 6, 2020.
