Fans of Peter Quill’s Thor voice, get ready to be very happy - it looks like you’re about to get a whole movie of it. Well, that’s if the first teaser trailer for Pixar’s Onward is to be believed, which you can watch below.

The set-up is simple, we’re in a fairytale land that’s turned boring and suburban, with miraculous monsters and crazy creatures made commonplace. Trolls charge cars to drive over bridges, garden gnomes do gardening, and unicorns raid the bins.

Two brothers, one played by Tom Holland, the other by Chris Pratt are embarking on an adventure - or, at least, we think they are - Pratt’s character could just be a total blowhard. He certainly sounds like one.

Of course, this is only a teaser, so we’ll hopefully get more plot detail when the full trailer lands, but there’s enough here to make us think this could be Monsters Inc meets Game Of Thrones, and that sounds like our new favourite movie.

Director Dean Scanlon has said the film will be a "mix of the fantastic and the everyday" with "elves, sprites and pretty much anything that would be on the side of a van in the ’70s".

"At Pixar we try to create stories that come from some kind of personal truth. This film was inspired by my own relationship with my brother."
