Chris Pratt on his role in Onward: Barley Lightfoot is overbearing
Chris Pratt is voicing the character Barley Lightfoot, the brother of Tom Holland's Ian Lightfoot in the animated film Onward
Actor Chris Pratt is part of the upcoming animated urban fantasy Onward. Set in a suburban fantasy world, Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there.
The Guardians of the Galaxy actor is playing the role of Barley Lightfoot, who is the big brother of Ian Lightfoot (voiced by Tom Holland).
Recently, Chris Pratt opened up about his role in the film. He is quoted as saying, "Barley is overbearing. And he tries a little too hard. He can be kind of a bumbling idiot, but he's got a good heart."
The actor said he can relate to Barley's love of fantasy. "I had a book on dwarf culture — their weapons and their societies. There were beautiful illustrations, and I was all about just drawing as a kid, so I loved to copy the drawings. I always loved the look of fantasy characters — elves, dwarves, massive ogres, and wizards."
Disney-Pixar is all set to release Onward in India on March 6.
