Animated films hit the hardest when it tackles grief and loneliness, and this one is no different. Over the Moon is an animated musical film that tells the story of a girl named Fei Fei, who used her wits and passion to build a rocket ship, in order to meet the moon goddess, Chang’e. Losing a loved one is a concept that everyone struggles or will struggle at some point and losing that loved one at such a young age can tremendously impact one’s future. The topics of grief and reluctance to change are concepts that are nothing new, especially to animated films, as films like Up (2009) and Inside Out (2015) embed themselves to our minds, by showing the…
As a kid I always dreamt of being an astronaut and climbing my own rocket till my dad crushed my dreams. So this hits too close home for me to love💀
Call me miss petty. Thanks dad🖕🏻
Over the moon has a heartwarming story that can be so comforting when you’re feeling lost, it deals with grief and loneliness is such a personal way. what stood out to me was how impactful this movie will be for young chinese kids watching it. it depicted chinese culture and chinese people so beautifully. this film would’ve made my world when i was a young chinese girl growing up in america, i got emotional watching it thinking of how many young chinese kids watching it see their culture as something so meaningful and beautiful and not something weird or odd. love the casting choices for the voices of each character and the songs were modern musical/pop-edm which i think matched the overall essence of the film very well. my new go to comfort movie. (this is super biased as well lol)
cant believe they faked the moon landing just so we wouldn't see the pop girl living in there
When did American kids movies become so preoccupied with death? When did being a beloved relative in a colorful animated children’s adventure become as much of a death sentence as being a teenager in a “Final Destination” film? Loss and the lessons that come with it are somewhat foundational to a genre that’s still associated with the likes of “Bambi” and — more recently — “The Lion King,” but over the last few years it’s started to feel as if feature-length cartoons have embraced their function as surrogate grieving counselors for young people who need a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down.
This is not a complaint: As someone raised on the grief-adjacent “My Neighbor Totoro” (and…
Everything was fine and I enjoyed this quite a bit until this annoying green blob appeared and ruined everything...
The main reason I watched the film was ultimately because of Phillipa Soo and Sandra Oh (whose songs and screen time did not disappoint)…and my four-year-old niece who forced me to watch it with her. It turns out that it isn’t half as bad as the trailer makes it out to be.
I love how beautiful animation films are turning out this century, and how they explore themes in such a way that children are able to understand and appreciate. Over the Moon's animation is superb and visually stunning. There is no disappointment there at all, yet I feel like the many extra characters added during the second half (such as the biker chicks) were so random and only…
This is the type of film where, for me, the songs get in the way. And there are an enormous amount of them in here.
Over the Moon has a big heart and that's where its strength lies. It's a tender, at points heartwarming, story that takes a while to get going, but when it does there is a lot to like.
I was especially pleasantly surprised by the quality of the animations, particularly in the sequences on the moon. They are really vibrant and off-beat enough for this film to be its own thing.
For the better part that is, because it leans (perhaps too) heavily on the formula these films apparently need to follow. You know you're in…
2020 Releases Ranked-HERE
Well, Over the Moon was a nice little surprise. This American-Chinese computer-animated musical/adventure film directed by Glen Keane and stars the voice talents of Cathy Ang, Phillipa Soo, Ken Jeong, John Cho, Ruthie Ann Miles, Margaret Cho, and Sandra Oh.
You’d think that by October an animated film would have come out to rival Pixar’s crown. Yet, from what I’ve seen very few have come close this year. Could Over the Moon be that film to rival this years Onward? Well to begin with, It’s undeniable that the colourful animation mixed with the occasional brilliant song is what makes it as good as it is, but the true highlight of the film is the brilliant score by…

why cant i stop crying at stupid animation movies
when did netflix orignals start being good??
how to make mooncakes!
My most anticipated film of the month, Netflix finally released over the moon to the public and while I can safely say it's not any sort of masterpiece, I pretty much loved every moment. The film feels truest in its moments of character with the naive young girl grieving - and subsequently searching - for her mother, and is strongest in its early moments of family life and everyday youthful innocence. Even when it treads ground far less than what one could conscionably call "original," it achieves it with such visual flair and straightforwardness that it's always a treat for the senses if not the mind.
The inconsistency of the soundtrack - a 'How Far I'll Go' style anthem followed…
this has so much heart and was so stunningly animated!!!!! give it the disney level hype that it deserves please!!!
this movie is seriously everything! its an all-rounder! to me it didn't feel like your typical animated children's film, it felt so much more than that, i loved how they explored different themes, family, grief and loss, moving on and healing and loneliness all while still keeping the balance between sadness and joy equal. and the music!!! god that was so good im gonna go and download every song now skwslk
Asian Flynn Rider
I went into this not knowing anything about it, started off incredibly strong and then I became incredibly disappointed. I would love for a kids movie to stay within the confines of somewhat reality rather than some unexplainable fantasy land with neon creatures. I think it would have been a lot more powerful if it tackled grief and acceptance that way. Could help a lot of children. I love the representation of culture though, and the Le Voyage dans la Lune reference
the cultural details in this were everything 🤩
Sure, it wants to invoke the feels that every Disney princess movie has, but it so clearly wants to be something different too. I'd rather see a movie brazenly be itself, than try to mimic something else.
OVER THE MOON (2020)
"A girl builds a rocket ship and blasts off, hoping to meet a mythical moon goddess."
The 3D animation in this is so good, it almost looks real!
Visually, this film is quite excellent but story and character wise it's a big letdown. I really like the concept of it all, it's just the execution of the plot falters for me. Plus, despite being a musical, I felt sleepy most of this movie and almost shrugged it off. Also, the main character in Fei Fei (voiced by Cathy Ang) isn't that likable, at least she wasn't to me. I felt bad for Fei Fei's dad more than anyone else in the flick.
Kids will enjoy it, but it could have been better!
not philipa soo crying her heart out over a dead guy again
pippa soo as a pop singer goddess... yes please
So many colours!!!
I really wanted to like this movie. I really did. The first half hour was so beautiful and wholesome and so culturally appropriate. And I am all for Asian American representation in movies. However it all went downhill from there and there were so many plot holes and random scenes. I just wished that the plot was more cohesive and that the characters had more heart and purpose. Needless to say this movie is aimed for children and I can see its appeal in the demographic.
i love this future nostalgia concert movie omg!
phillipa soo i love you so much!!!!!
that bunny has to be in the top 10 cutest animated pets i’ve ever seen.
i can’t stop crying, this was really beautiful
Elsa but in SPACE.
the animation was beautiful and this was very cute and also sad. might have to rewatch in the original dub when i intend to finish this. also why does the review section of this movie reek of racism 🤧 chill out this is not a blight on animated movies. worry about the minions movies instead
