Moonbound – Movie Review

Movies Reviews

Moonbound is an adorable movie based on a German fairy tale Little Peter’s Journey to the Moon by Gerdt von Bassewitz. It follows the story of Peter and Anne and their journey to the moon to help an elderly June bug called Mr Zoomzeman.

After a thief cut down Mr Zoomzeman’s birch tree home, the Night Fairy banished him to the moon but tragically Mrs Zoomzeman and Mr Zoomzeman’s arm were sent there too. Mr Zoomzeman spent his life searching for some brave children to help accompany him on a rescue mission to the moon.

Moonbound is a sweet adaptation about two brave children who go on an epic mission to help their June Bug friend. The movie is funny and relatable and has positive role models and tons of uplifting messaging. Due to some scary themes (facing an evil villain and his henchmen, losing loved ones, leaving home etc) the movie is most suitable for a family audience with young children.

We loved this family film its so beautifully animated.
The kids are now asking me to get the children’s books, they want to know more about Pete. A really uplifting and sometimes funny story that shows bravery and strength isn’t always limited by your size, and even a tiny beetle can succeed!
