These times are hard. Covid-19 is here, there, and everywhere… and it’s taking its toll. Physically and emotionally, we’re all feeling it in one way or another. This includes our tiny humans. Many are now in orders to shelter in place, while the rest of us have been instructed to practice social distancing with little to no outside interaction. No school. No play dates. No trips to the playground. It’s stressful and exhausting – but it’s necessary. As parents, we are desperately trying to entertain and secure some sort of normalcy for our children while being socially responsible people.
I am so excited to share with you that Pixar has decided to release their newest film, Onward, for digital purchase TODAY – March 20, 2020 and on April 3, 2020 they will be adding it to the Disney+ line up.
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.
Something fun and new for your families to enjoy SAFELY FROM YOUR HOMES.
While you’re at it, they have provided these amazing new Onward coloring and activity sheets to enjoy some creative, screen free time, as well.
Hang in there, moms and dads. Together, we can get through this.
