Pixar Onward Guinevere Van Tour

A real-life version of Guinevere, Barley’s groovy purple van aka his mighty steed, is off on a 10-city tour to celebrate Pixar’s upcoming big-screen quest, Onward. Fans are invited to take photos with Guinevere and pick up some free swag which will also be on hand — including posters, stickers, and bags (while supplies last).

Other recent Pixar films like Cars 3 and Toy Story 4 have held these family-friendly (and fun) events that allowed people to get up-close with a life-sized Lightning McQueen, or even toss a snake into Woody’s boot during the Toy Story RV tour. We’re so excited that people are going to be able to see Guinevere up close — and potentially win some cool Onward-themed merchandise as well.

Check out the walk-around video of Guinevere we took while visiting Pixar Animation Studios. Watch along embedded below or on our YouTube channel.

Guinevere’s Van Quest Tour kicked off January 27 at Pixar Animation Studios in Northern California, trekking across the U.S. to 10 cities, including San Diego, Phoenix, Dallas, New York City, and Miami, among others.

Real-Life Guinevere from Onward Van Tour

ABOUT THE MOVIE: Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney and Pixar’s Onward introduces Ian and Barley Lightfoot, two teenage elf brothers (voices of Tom Holland and Chris Pratt) who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. Pixar Animation Studios’ all-new original feature film is directed by Dan Scanlon and produced by Kori Rae—the team behind Monsters University. #PixarOnward

ABOUT GUINEVERE: Guinevere is more than just a van—she’s Barley’s mighty steed! Built from the ground up by Barley himself, the beloved van is a bit rundown but spectacularly decked her out with crescent moon windows and a Pegacorn—part Pegasus, part unicorn—mural. So, of course, Barley calls on Guinevere to shepherd them on their epic quest.
