ONWARD - Arriving Early On Digital & Disney+ AND Activity Pages

I am bummed that I won't be able to see this in theaters, but I am excited to share the news that The Walt Disney Studios announced today that Disney and Pixar’s ONWARD will be available to buy digitally and on Movies Anywhere beginning today at 5:00pm PST/ 8:00pm EST and on Disney+ on April 3rd in the U.S. 

The film premiered in theaters on March 6th and earned rave reviews from audiences, including a 95% Verified Audience Score on RottenTomatoes. With cinemas currently impacted by closures due to the global health crisis, Disney will offer the film ahead of schedule to purchase on digital platforms in the U.S. beginning today at 5:00pm PST /8:00pm EST for $19.99.

“While we’re looking forward to audiences enjoying our films on the big screen again soon, given the current circumstances, we are pleased to release this fun, adventurous film to digital platforms early for audiences to enjoy from the comfort of their homes,” said Dan Scanlon (Director, “Onward”) and Kori Rae (Producer, “Onward”).

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.

With this exciting news, I also wanted to send around some fun new activity sheets and coloring pages which can be downloaded here:


  1. I am so glad that I read your Onward Movie review! I was wondering how Disney was going to handle this this predicament with the Corona Virus quarantines??
    The poor kids can’t even go to the show! I know the younger ones probably don’t understand totally and I don’t think we should scare them either. I know my younger grandkids were looking forward to this movie. They pretty much like every film that Disney makes. I didn’t know too much about it until I saw the trailer above and read your review. At least this will be one new movie that they haven’t seen. Parents can make a party out of it. Popcorn �� juice �� and whatever else that’s needed. I really hope this virus thing doesn’t last too long! Be safe! Pinning! Thank you for sharing!

  2. P.S. Thank you for the much needed activities sheets!
    I shared on Pinterest and Facebook.
