YMMV / Onward

Go To

  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks!:
    • Some people had this reaction for Ian's character design. They usually compare him to a blue Linguini.
    • There have also been complaints that Laura looks like a elven version of Sadness.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: There are many Marvel Cinematic Universe fans who are interested in seeing this movie just because Tom Holland (Peter Parker/Spider-Man) and Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star-Lord) voice the main characters.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • The title, considering how Pixar literally moved Onward from making sequels to their movies.
      • Alternatively, the animation industry could finally move Onward from remaking everything.
    • The casting of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt has inspired jokes about Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and Peter Quill (Star-Lord) getting reincarnated into another world after getting snapped, or this movie being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking place in one of the Alternate Universes.
      • Speaking of Chris Pratt, his voice and manner of speaking as Barley has many joking that he is still trying to imitate Thor.
      • Alternatively, because Parker and Quill share the first name "Peter", some have decided to call the movie "Pete & Pete".
    • Common descriptions for the film include "Zootopia, but with demi-humans instead of furries" or "Bright if it was actually good".

  • Tainted by the Preview: Some express concern that the movie is going to be an oddball to Pixar's filmography, due to the extensive focus on comedy shown in the trailer and the movie staying away from their usual formula. Then again, Trailers Always Lie (and Pixar has created many comedic Missing Trailer Scenes for their movies' marketing).
  • Win the Crowd: The trailer received unanimous praise for being a fresh idea for an animated movie. Especially with the wave of sequels and remakes that come out alongside it.
