Netflix and Pearl Studio have unveiled the final trailer for Glen Keane’s highly anticipated CG feature Over the Moon — a beautifully crafted, musical fantasy adventure inspired by both Chinese mythology and contemporary life. The new spot takes us into the light-filled city of Lunaria and reveals a bold Moon Goddess (voiced by Hamilton star Phillipa Soo), who tasks our young heroine with finding her long lost true love in exchange for the wish that will send Fei Fei back to Earth.
Over the Moon premieres on Netflix streaming on October 23. Read more about the project in the November issue of Animation Magazine, available soon.
