Trivia

According to director Dan Scanlon, who lost his father at a very young age, the film is inspired by the question he's always asked: "who was my father? The story is set in a world with no humans. Elves, trolls, sprites, and "anything that would be on the side of a van in the '70s," exist in this world, said the director. "In the film, we're going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him. But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father."
