Onward, 2020 - ★★★★

Pixar's latest offering is not really groundbreaking but once again the story is solid and the message towards the end really meant something to me. I was not emotionally as invested as with Coco but I still go choked up at the end of this. Holland and Pratt are really good in the lead roles lending their voices to two well-developed characters. The quest to restore Dad's upper-torso is an interesting plot direction but Director Dan Scanlon does a great job of moving the story along. Kudos to Octavia Spencer for providing the right amount of comic relief. This is not one of the best Pixar films but it's an entertaining well-crafted quest-tale that contains the right amount of heart.
