Netflix continues to shake up the animation panorama with authentic function movies. Final December’s Klaus, from Despicable Me creator Sergio Pablos, snagged an Oscar nomination. Earlier this yr, The Willoughbys, a quirky kids’s story tailored from a Lois Lowry e book, hit the streaming platform.
Netflix’s subsequent film comes from the acclaimed Glen Keane (a personality animator on The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Tangled, to call just a few) and China’s Pearl Studios. Entitled Over the Moon, the film follows a younger woman in China bent on proving the existence of the legendary Moon Goddess.
Because the trailer progresses — the CG animation interwoven with 2D watercolor visuals when recounting the — it’s evident that the woman sees the Moon Goddess as a stand-in for her deceased mom, making her mission to show that the gorgeous lady within the sky is actual all of the extra heartfelt.
When you’ve made it about 95% of the way in which by the trailer and like me thought to your self “Wow, this looks like a beautiful and poignant film tied together with a culturally relevant grief allegory, I am definitely sold” and are about to click on out of the tab, watch the final remaining moments. Whereas all the magic and house journey looks like it may very well be a metaphor, these final moments reveal a vibrant and beautiful house world. How did she rise up there? Who’s the Moon Goddess? And how on earth is she going to get again residence?
Over the Moon hits Netflix this fall.
