Set in a world where mythological creatures like elves and dragons evolved into modern suburbia, the film tells the story of elf brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot, (Creator/TomHolland and Creator/ChrisPratt, respectively), who embark on a quest in search of magic that they hope will allow them to spend one day with their father, who died when they were too young to remember him. The film also stars Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus as Mrs. Lightfoot, plus Creator/OctaviaSpencer as Manracore.
