    Quest for Magic: The Making of Pixar’s Onward


Project Affiliation:

    Pixar Animation Studios


    Onward tells an original, heartfelt story of two brothers’ quest to reunite with their late father. An epic journey presents the film’s audience with a unique world full of settings and situations that are simultaneously exotic and familiar. Onward’s crew faced a similarly varied set of challenges: some fantastic, some mundane, some both at the same time. In this session, the crew will discuss the process of creating Onward’s unusual characters, diverse environments, and magic.
