Five elementary school children are spending their summer break camping at a remote mountain village. While on a hunt for their missing rabbit, Pyon-kichi, they find an injured dog in a field with crop circles. After nursing the dog back to health, they are shocked when he suddenly speaks and introduces himself as Pochi Rickman—an alien researcher who has been on Earth researching its plant life.

As thanks for saving his life, Pochi offers to take the children to the moon on a sightseeing trip. When they arrive, the group quickly discovers that the moon hides a vast alien metropolis which they begin to gleefully explore. Unfortunately, after hearing that Pochi was severely injured on his mission, the government of the moon issues a travel sanction on Earth, preventing the children from returning home.

Left with no other choice, the group journeys around the galaxy in search of a way to safely return to Earth. Amidst their adventure, they are pursued by aliens affiliated with "The Space Show," the universe's most-watched production shrouded in mystery.

Leave any child unattended for a length of time and they will undoubtedly find themselves in some sort of mischief, even if they weren't looking to get into trouble, and all world weary parents, teachers and carers will attest to this as truth. The main reason for it is because kids are naturally curious individuals (when you're young the universe tends to be a fascinating place), and are more willing to accept as fact things that many adults would find preposterous, ridiculous, or just plain crazy.

The irony is that while the "mature" population of the world will often scoff or smile condescendingly at children's tales ...

I loved this movie. It reminded me of a Miyazaki Film.

The story is really fun. It's enjoyable for all ages. mostly comedic with action and emotional times stirred in. It makes for a great ride.

The characters are your basic mix for an adventure story. You have the older responsible one, bookworm, cute kid, girly girl, and engergetic character. Even though we've all seen these character types before they each have their own unique feel to them as the develop.

Art is Great hands down, only complaint any one could have is when they fly over the moon.

As i said i abosolutly loved this film, it ...

I tend to do exhaustive research on most media before I commit to watching/reading it. Many reviews of this film gave it moderately positive scores, but many also commented that it was too long (especially in the second half) and could have been edited down to be a better film. Being the crotchety old guy that I am, I just guessed that these comments were being made by people with abbreviated attention spans. However, after watching it I found myself agreeing with those other reviewers.

I just purchased a new projector for my home theater and have been watching films that are advertised or reviewed as ...
