Collider talks to Octavia about her new role in The Witches and what animal she is not a fan of!

With Robert Zemeckis’ The Witches now available to watch on HBO Max, we got the chance to catch up with Octavia Spencer to discuss her experience making the film. Spencer plays the grandmother of a young boy (Jahzir Bruno) who loses his parents. Soon after taking him in, they venture off to a hotel where, unbeknownst to them, the Grand High Witch (Anne Hathaway) is hosting an event to show off her new scheme to her underlings, a plot to transform children into mice.

In addition to discussing her experience making the movie, Spencer also took a moment to address the inspiration behind the continued work she’s doing with her alma mater, Auburn University, and if she’d rather work with a real animal or CG creature. Check it all out in this interview!

Pixar’s Latest Movie, Onward, Has a Fairy Tale Twist with an Avengers Connection

May 31, 2019  •  Ali  •  No Comment  •  Onward, Videos

Check out the new trailer for Octavia’s film Onward from Pixar!

A teaser trailer promises a world in which dragons are pets and unicorns are dumpster monsters.

All the fairy tale stuff you’ve been told about—centaurs, mermaids, unicorns, dragons? They’re all present and accounted for in Pixar’s newest upcoming film Onward, a suburban tale about a world in which all those mythical creatures live together in a chill suburb. In a new teaser trailer, the film promises a universe in which mermaids casually live next door, dragons are basically domesticated pets, and unicorns are raccoon-like dumpster creatures, feasting on your trash if you leave it in your front yard without the lid on.

The story revolves around two elvish brothers, Ian and Barley (voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt). Ian is the good-natured, responsible type, while Barley is more rebellious, a rock music-cranking, reckless-driving rebel. Together, they embark on some sort of quest to find the last scraps of magic left in the world.

Onward, written and directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) also stars Octavia Spencer and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, though it’s not clear what roles they’re playing just yet. In a brief interview with People, Scanlon shed a bit more light on Holland and Pratt’s characters.

“We were looking for someone who could have this shy quality and someone who is good at being a little awkward. And Tom is great at that!” he said of the current Spider-Man actor. “And yet has a genuine sweetness to him that you really root for him.”

For Pratt’s character, meanwhile, Pixar was looking for “someone who was the exact opposite of that. Someone who could be wild and chaotic and out of control, but in a very charming and infectious way. And Chris Pratt is perfect for that. He has this ability to be both sort of wild and out of control but in a really lovable, fun, infectious way.” And, what do you know: after being in the Marvel family together for quite some time, Holland and Pratt already have a built-in brotherly chemistry. Onward hits theaters on March 6, 2020.

Octavia is doing press for Ma and this week she was on The Late Late Show with James Corden along with actor Henry Winkler.

With Henry Winkler sitting next to her, Octavia Spencer shares her favorite memory of Fonzie. After, James asks Octavia, fresh off a flight from London where she’s been filming, about her time in his home country and learns she found it makes you want unusual things, like dish detergent.

James arranges for “The Price Is Right” super fan Octavia Spencer and fellow show guest Henry Winkler to take part in one of the show’s featured games, Squeeze Play.
