Blurb from NetflixWhen the old guardian of the moon retires, the mischievous Mune is chosen as his successor, but he worries he's not up to the job.

Cat's Point of View: 

Today I felt that a little pick-me-up was in order. As I was scrolling through recent additions to the titles available on Netflix, I stumbled across this movie. I recognized it right away that it was one for which I have been waiting patiently for streaming availability.

I happily dove into the world of interesting creatures, their fascinating culture, and the balance of night and day. I loved how each time of day was represented – such as the bio-luminescence in the plant life and creatures at night. The visuals were quite stunning.

The majority of the film is rendered in modern computer animation style, though there are some small sections that seem to be in a more traditional, and some might say simpler, style. With the context of those segments of the movie, I think it was an excellent choice to make a distinction in that way so that it stood out in contrast with the rest of the film.

This is a great story to share with the whole family. I think most of us can relate to the feeling that we might be biting off more than we can chew. It’s a tale of personal growth and perseverance. I absolutely adored it and can’t wait to show my daughter that it’s available now.
