The actor voiced Barley Lightfoot, and he chose a rather interesting format to emphasize why people should vote for Onward.

As you can see in the below Instagram post, Chris Pratt started writing the following about Onward which has sparked quite a bit of backlash:

“With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote. Just ask any celebrity. They will tell you. Every day. Several times a day. To vote.”

His post then continued:

“But me? I will tell you EXACTLY who to vote for Onward The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy. The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity.”

Chris Pratt then ended the post on this particular note:

“Vote for Onward for family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard.”
