50 Magical Onward Movie Quotes

Learning about how Pixar put the magic in Onward was fascinating and really gave insight to this modern world of New Mushroomton. There used to be magic in this world until it was gone and people chose to rely on modern conveniences. 

In Pixar’s Onward, brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot go on a quest to complete a spell to bring back their father for one day. Amongst these adventures are magic spells, heartwarming quotes, funny quotes, and sad quotes. They’re definitely relatable. Enjoy these Pixar Onward quotes, but if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I would wait to read them all, because there are some mild spoilers. Barley Lightfoot really has some great one-liners.
