To The Moon, the pixel tear-jerker is getting an animated feature film so you can now cry about the story as a movie for To The Moon!
The project will be a collaboration between Japan (main production) and China (main funding). First tier Japanese animation production companies are aboard, with specifics to be announced at a future date.
On the funding side, significant budget has been secured for the project, quoted as somewhere above the budget for the animated film production of “Your Name” as reference.
The film project was planned and made possible in partnership with Beijing’s Ultron Event Horizon, whose CEO, Danyang Zhao, was responsible for bringing “Your Name” to China.
The original creator of To the Moon, Kan Gao, will play a part in the film script creation process and consultation.
