Over the Moon: What are hints dropped?
In this modern reimaging of a classic Chinese legend, 13-year-old Fei Fei attempts to connect with her deceased mother through a myth her family regularly recounted to her when she was little. The story of the Moon Goddess who waits on the moon “for her one and only true love”. Desperate to hold on to her mother’s memory, Fei Fei sets out to prove the Moon Goddess is more than “a silly myth” to the family who doesn’t believe her.
But when the young girl builds a spaceship and launches it into the sky, her ship is knocked around and nearly crashes. Instead of Fei Fei and her bunny tumbling back to Earth, they find themselves transported to the stunning and magical world of the moon. There, she finds the actual Moon Goddess, but she is far from what Fei Fei expected.
You can hear Fei saying in the trailer that “Nothing like Mama said she would be”, she quickly realizes the goddess is actually a pop singer who regularly performs for her adoring fans when she is not ruling her kingdom made up of aspiring celebrities.
When the Moon Goddess announces she will grant one wish to the person who finds and brings her one true love back, Fei Fei, her bunny, and the alien Gobi set out to return the young girl home and prove the myth is reality.
