*”Thomas the Terrific and Christopher the Charismatic!” – Dan Scanlon
Motivated by director Dan Scanlon‘s life with his brother, “Onward” chases elf siblings Ian (voiced by Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (voiced by Chris Pratt) on an adventure to discover if there’s still a little magic in their world. EUR correspondent Fahnia Thomas joked with the fellas about zodiacs, parties and secrets.
FT: Ian was nervous about his birthday party, what did you do for your sweet sixteen?
CP: I have the best birthday in the world at least in the northern hemisphere because I am born on June 21, the first day of summer and it’s the sunniest day of the year! It’s truly the best birthday in the whole world!
FT: You sound just like a Gemini!
CP: I am a Gemini! You know it!
TH: I’m June 1st! I’m a Gemini as well!
CP: …there’s six of us in the room right now!
TH: …and we’re all going to switch!
CP: June 1st is actually the best one because it has never rained on my birthday, in the 23 years that I’ve been here, I live in England, do you know how amazing that is?!
FT: For his birthday Ian wrote a New Me list, what would you put on your list?
TH: [Jokingly] Be less two-faced! I’m not two-faced at all, I’m just a Gemini and that’s the [zodiac sign, the] twins.
CP: Every year I do a solid inventory [and I wrote]…
TH: [Jokingly]…spend more time with Tom.
CP: Pulling my head out of the sand in certain areas of my life. Being cognizant of relationships in my life I need to foster or cut myself away from. Being on my phone less when I’m around my son.
FT: Who is the voice actor for dad?
DS: We wanted to keep it a little bit of a secret so people wouldn’t think of a specific person right away.
