Glen Keane, ex-Disney animator famous for bringing the likes of The Little Mermaid to life, has been selected to produce an new animated movie called “Over the Moon”. The musical film is based on an old Chinese tale about a girl who builds a rocket ship and heads to the moon to try and meet the legendary Moon Goddess.
“Over the Moon” will be released theatrically in China in 2020 and around the globe exclusively on Netflix.
“I am powerfully drawn to characters who believe the impossible is possible,” said Keane. “Over The Moon has just such a heroine as its centerpiece. The compelling script by Audrey Wells has tremendous heart and humor that called to me and I had to respond. I’m honored to bring this story to life alongside my producer Gennie Rim. We are both looking forward to creating a wonderful film and partnership with Melissa Cobb at Netflix and Peilin Chou at Pearl Studio.”
