Over the Moon is a 2020 3D animated movie directed by Glen Keane, produced by Pearl Studio and Netflix Animation. Pearl Studio had produced the 3D animated movie Abominable in 2019 which I kinda enjoyed. I really like Asian designs, people and environment, in Abominable.

I’m a big fan of Glen Keane. His character drawings are so lively, and look so physical as if you can hug them. If you have him as the director, you can be pretty sure the art direction is going to be amazing, and the art direction is amazing.

Designs for the characters and environment look so good. Glen Keane himself contribute plenty of character sketches of course. The Asian aesthetics is captured really well. One look at either the characters or the environments and you can identify the Asian theme. I know the story of the Goddess of the Moon quite well but all the imagery I’ve seen in my life are all the Asian art drawn by Asian artists. To see a whole new world designed around this story, together with new designs is incredible. The artists did a fantastic job coming up all the creative designs for the Lunaria, moonscape, props, everything. It’s creativity at full blast. I guess you can tell I’m pretty excited because I am. It’s always very refreshing and exciting to see non-Asian artists’ take and interpretation of Asian culture and lore.

Text in the book cover the characters, storytelling and also design. I actually wished there was more text because I would love to read more about the story adaptation and development.

The book’s a 192-page hardcover published by Titan Books.

I highly recommend this book.
