How to watch Onward online with a free trial

Disney Pixar’s big 2020 film has parked itself on Disney Plus, iTunes and more.

On the road again.

Every day, more and more studios are fast-tracking theatrical releases for home digital services. After Universal announced its latest kids flick Trolls: World Tour would be hitting streaming services soon after its release in April, Disney Plus subscribers were surprised with Frozen 2 three months before intended for home entertainment. Then it went one step further, accelerating the release of its 2020 roadtrip feature, allowing Australians to watch Onward online early.

Onward released on iTunes and Microsoft Store 3 April 2020, closely followed by a Disney Plus release on 24 April 2020.

What is Disney Pixar’s Onward about?

Onward is an animated Pixar flick from the director of Monsters University (also streaming on Disney Plus) starring the voices of Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home, Prime Video), Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney Plus), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep, Foxtel Now) and Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures).

A mythical road trip adventure, Onward is set in a fairytale world where modern-day, real-world technology has replaced the need for magic. Two elf teenagers, Ian and Barley Lightfoot (Holland and Pratt) hit the road on a mission to track down a gem with the power to restore their father, who passed away before Ian was born, for a single day.
