The man on the Moon is bored.
One day he hitches a ride to Earth on the tails of a passing comet, an attack from outer space that sets the alarm bells ringing in the President’s headquarters. The moon Man starts to explore the fantastical creatures and sights of a new planet. But all is not well, the Moon man’s absence from his post means that all the world’s children are unable to sleep. Before the megalomaniac President can capture him, they must join forces to return him to his rightful place in the sky. Based on the much loved children’s book by Tomi Ungerer, Moon Man is an unmissable experience for all ages, both young and old.
This beautifully animated film is a German, French and Irish co-production involving Ireland’s Oscar nominated animation studio Cartoon Saloon with narration provided by Tomi Ungerer.
