OVER THE MOON (Internet Release USA 2020)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Over the Moon almost plays like a Disney film even though it is a Netflix production. It is partially Disney staffed, has a good storyline, and could easily be re-watched. The heart shines through the story and it may be one of the best of 2020 animated films. This little animated treasure tells life’s story as it is. WOW! Listen up for the voice of Phillipa Soo…fantastic. Great work for all involved.

Yes. It does classify as B-grade class, but WOW! WOW! It deserves its place in the family home video library. It’s completely re-watchable.
