Another of the film's big names includes Octavia Spencer, who recently shared a photo of a billboard that features her character, The Manticore.

Onward stars Tom Holland, Chris Pratt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer, Ali Wong, Lena Waithe, and Mel Rodriguez. The film was written and directed by Dean Scanlon (Monsters University) and follows two elf brothers who are given a magical staff by their late father, which will grant them the magic ability to bring him back for one day so he can see them grown up. The magic doesn't work out quite as well as advertised, as only the bottom half of their father is resurrected. The duo then heads out on a quest to finish the job the staff started before their father disappears for good and they miss their chance.
