To The Moon Getting Animated Film Adaptation


To The Moon, a powerful interactive story that made waves back when it released in 2011, is getting an animated feature film.

Kan Gao, the creator of To The Moon, will have a hand in crafting the film’s script, as well as the entirety of the creative process. The funding was secured mainly by an unannounced Chinese company with help from¬†Ultron Event Horizon and,¬†according to Gao, this funding is more than for last year’s anime hit Your Name. The production company making the film is Japanese but also still under wraps, though Gao says “they’re pretty big players” in the animation, and that those familiar the industry will have heard of them.

Although Gao is involved with the film, he will still continue to make games and is already working on his next game, and promises that for fans of his games, “things are going to get pretty weird from here on.” You can watch Gao discuss the announcement in depth below.
