What are some top rated kids movies that the whole family will enjoy? If you are looking to entertain your kids if your school or daycare is closed then this movie is a great movie to fit your need. It is even better that I expected. But, the latest Coronavirus Scare of 2020 has impacted the box office performance at movies and people just aren’t seeing movies during the scare. But fortunately for me, I am healthy and usually don’t get sick.
This movie has been called Frozen for boys, and I can see why. This movie is as heartwarming and especially kids will want to watch it over and over again. There will soon be a big cult following. I want to go back and watch this movie a second time.
I know that a grown man going to see a Pixar movie is kind of weird, but don’t worry I’m not some weird criminal. In fact when I see kids, I shout out stranger danger…lol.
During the Coronavirus and beyond, this movie is worth going out to see, if you are willing to brave the fear of the current pandemic. But, if you are home and can’t see movies at the theaters, I recommend other great Pixar movies like this one.
This is currently the best Pixar movie of 2020 and will be one of the best Pixar movies for a long time. Below, I am excited to tell you about the newest Pixar movie, Onward.
I’m going to tell you a little about the movie to pique your interest, with telling you all about it.
Magic was common in previous time periods but magic began to fizzle out as time progressed. Their father Wildan was a great wizard but died before Ian was born. What Ian would have given for the possibility of knowing his father.
Ian Lightfoot and his brother, Barley, live in the quaint town of Mushroomtown. Ian, who is still in high school, struggles with self-confidence unlike his brother Barley, a role playing, historic fanatic older brother.
On Ian’s birthday, he gets a gift that his mother gives him from his father. It is a magical staff, a special gem for the staff, and a letter describing a spell called ‘The Visitation Spell’, which can resurrect his father for one day. First, Barley attempts to wield the staff and make his father appear, but to no avail. Later on in the day, Ian accidentally succeeds in doing so, but only the lower half of their father’s body appears before the gem disappears.
Upon realizing that this happened, Barley discovered that magic really is real and claims that in one of the role playing games that he plays, a card matching the gem that disappeared can tell them where another gem is so that they can reattempt the spell.
This sends them on an adventurous quest to find the lost gem before the spell wears off. If they find this gem, they can use it to re perform the spell so that the upper half of their father’s body appears.
This quest is full of dangers, laughs, and adventure. I’m going to stop here right before the exciting plot so I don’t spoil the movie for you. You’re welcome. You should watch the movie yourself. You and your family will love this movie. Your kids will eventually want all the Onward gear. Also, find out how Ian gets more self-confidence.
Here is the trailer that is sure to get you hyped about this movie.
This film got a $101.8 million at the box office, and had the third lowest Pixar start for a movie. The next weekend it also went down 73%, leading to the worst second weekend for Pixar ever. But, this film looked like it underperformed in the box office and these stats can mislead people into thinking that this movie is not worth seeing. During one of the weekends, movies at the theaters have grossed the worst since October 1998.
I give this movie a 10 out of 10. What do you give this move?
In some Arab countries the film is banned though, because there is mention that a female officer being a lesbian and this also lead to that part of the movie being censored in Russia.
Do you think that this movie is worth not seeing because one minor character we see for a few minutes is Gay? Different people have different opinions about this and I don’t want this article to turn into a back and forth debate.
However, if you don’t see this movie because of that issue, it is your prerogative.
Here I will give you some easter eggs before easter. I am sorry if you don’t like puns.
Thank you for reading my article. If you liked it, you will like my other articles about Cars and Monster’s Inc and I will also give you more information about Disney and Pixar movies to watch.
I have recently taken advantage of a deal where you can get 4 movies for $1, however be sure to read the fine print. I am sure that you will enjoy it, especially if you have a slow or unreliable internet and Disney+ doesn’t work for you. This is a more flexible option backed by Disney.
