Did you hear the news? Since most of us can’t make it to the theaters these days (thanks, social distancing) Disney went ahead and released Onward digitally! It is available RIGHT NOW to buy digitally and on Movies Anywhere and will make its way to Disney+ on April 3rd.
Yes, the film technically premiered March 6th and people were positively RAVING about how great it was.
But now, March 6th feels like it was years ago (because every day in quarantine feels like an entire year) and they’re letting those of us who didn’t get to see the film in theaters yet, enjoy it online!
If you hadn’t heard yet, here’s the lowdown on the film.
In ONWARD, teenage elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) get an unexpected opportunity to spend one more day with their late dad, embarking on an extraordinary quest aboard Barley’s epic van Guinevere. Like any good quest, their journey is filled with magic spells, cryptic maps, impossible obstacles and unimaginable discoveries. But when the boys’ fearless mom Laurel (voice of Julia Louis-Dreyfus) realizes her sons are missing, she teams up with a part-lion, part-bat, part-scorpion, former warrior – aka The Manticore (voice of Octavia Spencer) – and heads off to find them. Perilous curses aside, this one magical day could mean more than any of them ever dreamed.

But now, on to the printables. Whether you’ve seen the film or not yet, these are fun activities you can print out and do with the kids!
Download the Onward activity pack here.
Its eleven pages of pure, awesome activities straight from Disney, and I’m thrilled to be able to share them with you. There’s a matching game and loads of adorable coloring sheets (like this one!).
If you download and realize that you’re out of printer paper, you can grab some through my affiliate link here. I realized we were down to 3 sheets when I tried to print a homework assignment today, so I already figured out where to order some for us.
Looking for more? I have a whole collection of Disney’s best coloring sheets and activities free for download right here.

.Yeah social distance very necessary in this hard time. Kids at home get bored and that’s how we can entertain them. What great ideas! Stay home, stay safe.
