Every month Talkies follows a monthly theme! Today we’re going to talk about Onward, our second film with the theme of “ animation”.

Onward was co-written and directed by Dan Scanlon. Scanlon has been with Pixar since 2001 and also co-wrote and directed Monsters University. The film followed in the footsteps of Coco, The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out as Pixar’s new IP that was not associated with the old Pixar film franchises like Toy Story and Cars. I’m looking forward to seeing more standalone animated films from Pixar and hope that films like Onward and Soul are encouraged.
