The Celestial Railroad is a fantastic journey of a boy, Giovanni, in a dreamscape created into a colorful full-dome CG animation picture with inspiring background music.

Based on a story written in the early 20th century, KAGAYA, a digital fine artist, has breathed new life into the unique imaginary world using creativity and precise astronomical knowledge.

The starry sky is depicted as the Celestial Field made up of a river, a field of silver grasses, flowers, birds, survey towers, railway signals and more. Across this amazing beautiful scenery, the Celestial Railroad runs along the Milky Way.

No character is shown, although we can hear Giovanni's and Campanella's voices in many moments in the narrative.

The animation focuses on showing the ...

This film is one of the most whole experiences that I've ever had. The film mainly takes us to an astonishingly beautiful and relaxed atmospheric audiovisual journey.
