Mice and the Moon: New 360° animated film for kids aged 3 to 6, opens June 6 at the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan

Pip and Chip are two very curious little mice who’d really like to know who’s nibbling away at the big Moon Cheese each night. But none of their friends seem to know the answer. Light will be shed on the mystery in the brand-new 360° animated film for kids aged 3 to 6, Mice and the Moon, which opens June 6 at the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan.

Children and adults will get to know the phases of the moon, projected on the dome, by acting them out along with a guide. At the end, they’ll all put on a brief choreography of the phases of the moon. This 10-minute activity will take place in the Chaos Theatre before the movie.

  • One ticket gives you access to all the day’s shows at the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan.

MICE AND THE MOON – (OPENING JUNE 6, 2019)

The original film was produced by Fulldome Basement of Minsk, Belarus. The artists used stop-motion animation with puppets, in conjunction with fulldome 3D animation. These pioneers in fulldome projection in their homeland have created a beautiful blend of fantasy and science. As the two little mice look for answers, the film explains simply and clearly the secrets of the planets, and especially the Moon, which is different every night.

This production won the award for Best Fulldome Film for Children at the Fulldome Festival held in Yaroslavl in 2017 and the Annual Recommendation to Young Audience Award at the Beijing International Science & Technology Film Festival in 2018. The story, adapted into French by the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan under the direction of Simon A. Bélanger, is narrated by Élodie Grenier and Martin Wathier. The voice adaptation and soundtrack were mixed by Benoît Dame and recorded by Studio Harmonie.
