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…
cant believe they faked the moon landing just so we wouldn't see the pop girl living in there
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)
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🖕🏻
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...
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…
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…
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…
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!!!
In this animated musical, a girl builds a rocket ship and blasts off, hoping to meet a mythical moon goddess. With the grand, colorful, and cultural showcase of Coco, and the magic of certain classic Disney stories, Over the Moon should make lots of kids glad they watched. It’s absolutely a film that holds moments for adults, but this is the kind of film that I would have been mesmerized by growing up. It also has to be the most colorful animated movie of the year so far. I loved the cultural aspects hit on here, and our main character is great. She leads us on this wild adventure to the…
Such gorgeous animation in this and some fun songs.
Over the Moon is a modern story that combines folklore, emotional themes, and science-fantasy to take younger viewers on an adventure.
The ENG VA cast is absolutely amazing and I rather enjoyed Fei Fei as the central character.
Chang e' is also a fun character to see on screen and Philippa Soo gets a lot out of the wide range of emotions, genres, and styles that the character demands. A lot of these Moon portions for me worked in the style of extreme camp which made the more emotional moments land a little flat.
Over the Moon has a lot of talent involved, there's a clear high production value on display…
Every moment of this film was beautiful and unexpected. I can't remember the last time I was so pleasantly taken on a wild ride of emotions like this. The music was amazing, the story beautiful and heartfelt, and the fantasy elements intertwined perfectly with the moments of ultrarealism. So much is going on in each frame, it's impossible not to be entranced. There wasn't a single wasted moment and I can't think of anything more I could want out of a animated musical. Better than anything Disney has produced in years. I hope this becomes a modern classic, it is well deserving of such.
would love to go the moon and not have a luminescent Ken Jeong sidekick but that's just me.
Mooncake, god tier chinese dessert
only watched for Phillipa Soo and Sandra Oh, worth my time
What an amazing film the animation is stunning! This movie is so bright and colorful the story is beautiful and the music slaps. You owe it to yourself to watch this one.
feels Disney, sounds Disney, and makes me feel like Disney does all while not being Disney. A win in my book!
I wish I could like this more, but I didn't. I felt no empathy or so ever.
The particular theme is needed, it's not just about death but it's about grief and how to overcome a lost love. It's relevant. It's a particular story, the story of this girl. All the heart of this movie comes from the script and it's wonderful, but it's ruined by all the disney-like fantasies.
The music, the funny quirky pet, the style... even the culture - that it's the most unique thing in this film - it's left behind. They wanted to make something new and particular by vulgarising it's essence (?). That's not how it works.
It ends up being just another movie about death that doesn't add up nothing really meaningful to the future. And it's sad because it's not really like that.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Visual stunning! But a pretty flat and lazy story. There were a lot of wasted potential in a few aspects, and too many comedic relief characters...but I guess for kids, which it's for, it was a simple story about loneliness,closure and acceptance. All would be solved if the deng dad was actually involved with his daughters mental health tho.
Only if building a rocket is that easy and simple. This was so cute and emotional. And I want moon cakes for Christmas!
