Even though there are a few new selections fit for the littlest binge-watchers among us, one of the best new children’s programming bets has to be Over the Moon. Netflix’s animated flick made some waves on social media, and it’s destined to become a hit. The movie follows a young girl named Fei Fei (Cathy Ang), whose determination and passion for science prompts her to built her very own rocket ship. Fei Fei intends to fly to the moon and confirm the existence of a storied Moon Goddess known as Chang’e (Phillipa Soo), but she also discovers a colorful new world full of fantastical creatures and unbelievable imagination.

Over the Moon comes from directors Glen Keane and John Kahrs, who have worked as animators on such iconic films as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Tangled, A Bug’s Life, The Incredibles and many more. Clearly, we’re in for another potential family-friendly animated classic. Featuring a handful of recognizable voices and a story worth investing in, you won’t want to miss Over the Moon. For an out of this world adventure that’s fun for the whole family, be sure to check out Netflix’s new original animated film when it blasts off on Oct. 23.
