A Real ‘Quest of Yore’ Game From Disney-Pixar’s ‘Onward’ Is In Development. Getting tired of Monopoly and Uno? Never fear, Disney-Pixar is hear to save you with an all new board game, Quests of Yore, based off the game featured in Disney-Pixar’s latest film, Onward.
Onward is set in a modern suburban fantasy world and tells the story of two teenage elf brothers, Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley (Chris Pratt) Lightfoot, on a quest to conjure enough magic to spend 24-hours with their late father. On their journey, the brothers encounter treacherous obstacles and must deploy magical tactics culled from Quests of Yore, Barley’s favorite role-playing board game. The magical story of Onward was inspired by Pixar movie director Dan Scanlon’s real-life experience of his own father.
Together, The Op and Disney and Pixar are thrilled to make Ian and Barley’s game a reality for fans of Onward and role-playing games (RPGs). Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition will deliver an imaginative and immersive fantasy gameplay experience, where the “Quest Master” unfolds the story narrative while players develop, enrich and actualize their characters along their journey.
“Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this project is that it allows fans to play the same game and experience the same excitement as Barley and Ian, and furthermore, get to embellish these adventures,” shared Maggie Matthews, Vice President of Licensing at The Op.
According to The Op, Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition will be available this Fall throughout North America in specialty stores as well as in Europe, Australia and New Zealand with a US $49.99 MSRP. The Op’s social media channels will feature more details and updates leading up to the launch of the game in Fall 2020.
For those who can’t wait and want more Onward merchandise, there is currently a Quests of Yore guidebook available on Amazon for $16.99 USD. You can order your own copy by CLICKING HERE.
“As seen in Disney and Pixar’s film, Onward, Barley and Ian Lightfoot would never set out on an adventure without their Quests of Yore guide book! Based on the book featured in the movie, this guide is full of wondrous characters and creatures to meet, exciting landmarks to explore, and powerful spells to learn. It even includes Ian and Barley’s fun doodles and notes, so you can join the two brothers on their epic quest!”
