Netflix has revealed the first trailer for their new animated film Over the Moon, which follows a young girl who wants to build a rocket ship and prove the story of the moon goddess is real to her disbelieving family.
From the moment this trailer began, it had my full attention. I live for stories that tackle mythology and Over the Moon does all that and more. It follows a young girl determined to build a rocket ship to take her to the moon and meet the legendary moon goddess that only she believes is real.
Fueled with determination and a passion for science, a bright young girl builds a rocket ship to the moon to prove the existence of a legendary Moon Goddess. There she ends up on an unexpected quest, and discovers a whimsical land of fantastical creatures.
Directed by animation legend Glen Keane, and produced by Gennie Rim and Peilin Chou, Over the Moon is an exhilarating musical adventure about moving forward, embracing the unexpected, and the power of imagination. The film stars Cathy Ang, Phillipa Soo, Ken Jeong, John Cho, Ruthie Ann Miles, Sandra Oh, Robert G. Chiu, Margaret Cho, and Kimiko Glenn.
Over the Moon will arrive on Netflix in the fall of 2020.
