The newest trailer for Netflix’s Over the Moon turns the Moon Goddess into a pop star

There is also a green alien dog thing who has my heart

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

Netflix’s newest animated feature — Over the Moon — is fantastical journey to outer space. The first trailer felt very rooted in reality, exploring the grief that the main character felt, but the newest one promises wacky, space hijinks and some brightly colored sidekicks.

Over the Moon follows a young girl named Fei Fei who is coping with the loss of her mother. Determined to prove that the legend of the Moon Goddess is real, Fei Fei builds a rocket to travel to the moon. When she lands, she finds a whole wacky world full of alien creatures and a Moon Goddess who’s less ethereal being and more extraterrestrial pop star.

The movie is also acclaimed Disney animator Glen Keane’s theatrical debut. Previously Keane directed the Kobe Bryant short film Dear Basketball, which won the Academy Award for best Animated Short. Over the Moon is a partnership between Netflix and Pearl Studios, which worked with DreamWorks last year on Abominable.

Over the Moon launches on Netflix on Oct. 23.
