Watching Over the Moon

I was looking forward to watching Over the Moon, and when I saw my Twitter feed filled with news about it, I had to watch it immediately. I was kind of blown away by the animation and art style, especially Fei Fei’s hometown. It was beautiful! The scenes on the moon were pretty cool, but I preferred the Earth-bound visuals.

The story was fun, a bit silly, but there were a couple of sad scenes when my eyes teared up a bit, so I guess it was a pretty good movie. 😭

I know this film is kind of a big deal for Chinese Americans, and I felt a little bit of pride in my heritage, even though I am very far removed from it. Still, something stirs within me when I see Chinese, Japanese, or Hawaiian heritage represented like this. The English and Scottish part of me… not so much, but maybe some day.
