"Apollo 10 ½: A Space Age Childhood tells the story of the first moon landing in the summer of 1969 from two interwoven perspectives – the astronaut and mission control view of the triumphant moment, and through the eyes of a kid growing up in Houston, Texas who has intergalactic dreams of his own."

Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood trailer

Remember that stunning art style we talked about earlier? Yeah, well, you definitely need to see it to believe it. Check out the official trailer for Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood below.

The story is shown to us using a mix of 3D and 2D limited animation, a highly detailed art style that takes tons of talented hands to not just complete but perfect. Apollo 10‘s filmmaker Richard Linklater had this to say about the gorgeous animation you just laid your eyes on:

"Our unique animation style allows both the conjuring of a world long gone, and the flowing, playful expression of memory and imagination. It’s been a fun, creative journey to incorporate things like 3D graphics into a live action shoot to help bring this story to life."

Knowing all this, it’s clear Netflix is stepping its game up! We couldn’t be any more excited for this title that, hopefully, marks the beginning of even more beautifully animated titles.
