For director, Dan Scanlon, this story starts at home. The family dynamic of Ian and Barley Lightfoot with their long lost father is something Scanlon can relate too. Dan and his brother lost their father at a very young age. In Scanlon’s mind, everything his father is was always a mystery. This is the same way that the Lightfoot brothers feel about their father.

Ian and his brother are left with a letter from their father, a magic spell, and a staff. Following their father’s instructions and an old spell, the two attempt to bring their father back from the dead for one more day with him.
