First Trailer for CG Animated 'Over the Moon' Directed by Glen Keane
"It's not a silly myth! It's real. She's on the moon… right now!" Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for an exciting new animated movie titled Over the Moon, developed in partnership with Pearl Studio in Shanghai. This is the first feature film directed by legendary animation master Glen Keane, who is working with John Kahrs (of Paperman) as his co-director. The story is about a girl who builds a rocket to travel to the moon in hopes of meeting the legendary Moon Goddess. It's also a musical with songs by Christopher Curtis, Marjorie Duffield, and Helen Park (KPOP); with a score by Oscar-winning composer Steven Price. Featuring a voice cast including Cathy Ang, Phillipa Soo, Ken Jeong, John Cho, Ruthie Ann Miles, Sandra Oh, Robert G. Chiu, Margaret Cho, and Kimiko Glenn. Keane is known for being one of the best classic Disney hand animators, so it's quite interesting to see him directing a 3D CGI animated movie. This looks charming! It reminds me of the animated short One Small Step also about an astronaut dreamer.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Glen Keane's Over the Moon, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
