Netflix has released the first trailer for their upcoming animated movie “Over the Moon” from legendary director and animator Glen Keane (“The Little Mermaid”, “Tangled”). 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.
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. Directed by Oscar®-Winning Filmmaker & Animator, Glen Keane, and produced by Gennie Rim and Peilin Chou. Starring Cathy Ang, Phillipa Soo, Robert G. Chiu, Ken Jeong, John Cho, Ruthie Ann Miles, Margaret Cho, Kimiko Glenn, Artt Butler and Sandra Oh.
“Over the Moon” will be released theatrically in China later this year and around the globe exclusively on Netflix sometime in Autumn / Fall.
“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.”
