Moonman DVD landing in Ireland and UK

At last, the animated feature film Moonman can be bought on DVD in Ireland and the UK.

The movie is based on the classic children’s book by Tomi Ungerer who was also actively involved in the development of the story for film.  The man on the moon is bored. One night he hitches a ride to Earth on the tail of a passing comet and starts to explore the sights and the fantastical creatures of the new planet. But all is not well. The ‘attack from outer space’ sets off alarm bells ringing in the President of Earth’s headquarters and the Moon Man’s absence from his post means that all the worlds’ children are unable to sleep. Before the President can capture him, the children must join forces with Moon Man to return him to his rightful place in the sky.

A feature film co-production between Schesh Filmkreation, Le Pacte and Cartoon Saloon
