Pixar comes up with a rather fresh concept, fantasy creatures in a modern times world, with some strong emotional moments. It was an excellent idea to make the film about the two brothers Ian (voiced by Tom Holland) and Barley (Chris Pratt) going on a quest to briefly reunite with the the late father they never knew or barely remember. It is a very heartfelt tale: wanting to connect with a relative you never knew. The connection between the two brothers (one’s the shy guy who isn’t into magic but can do it and the other is the outgoing, immature one who is into magic but can’t do it) is handled really well. The ending may be up there with some of Pixar’s great moments.
