Over The Moon Could Grab Netflix An Animation Oscar
"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."
This looks incredible. The 3D animation combined with 2D visuals are a spectacular combo, and the story is probably going to make me cry multiple times. Netflix nabbed a nomination for Klaus last year, but if this film lives up to its promise, it may steal the Oscar itself this year. We don't yet have an official release date for Over The Moon, but it better be sooner in the fall as opposed to like November. I do not want to wait that long to experience it.
