„Trip to the Moon“ is a modern version of the classic children’s tale by Gerdt von Bassewitz. An adventure story for children and family audiences, full of magic and adventure, magnificent imagery and loveable creatures, like Mr. Sandman, the Night Fairy, the celestial Forces of Nature and Mr. Zoomzeman, the talking June bug.
But most of all it’s about Peterchen and Anneliese. The two siblings have a hard time at school because they are the new kids in town and get bullied by the other children. Thanks to a chance encounter with June bug Mr. Zoomzeman, they get a unique chance to prove themselves. Due to unfortunate events, Zoomzeman’s sixth leg has been banished to the moon. And according to an ancient prophecy, he can only get it back if he finds two brave human children who accompany him on a trip to the moon.
