Oh and of course I’m extremely excited to see Lena in her new role! (Have y’all seen Lena’s new movie Queen and Slim yet? Cause you should!)
Corey played by Octavia Spencer
Octavia Spencer plays Corey, a Manticore, who’s also a restaurant owner.
(And just so you know, it took me FOREVER to figure out who this character was cause she don’t look like this in the movie! Lol This poster had me thinking I was looking for a man god damn it!)
But the diversity in this casting is incredible!
I’m loving the direction Disney has been going in recently! And I’m extremely excited to see Onward when it releases next year on March 6th, 2020!
P.s – Speaking of the casting … I know he’s not pictured above but, did you know John Ratzenberger has played a character in EVERY Pixar film? Isn’t that CRAZY!? Like did he have to sign a contract for this or something? Lol
