Apollo 10 ½ Release Date
Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood was announced for production all the way back in February 2018. Thus, fans have had to wait for quite a few years to watch the movie. Fortunately, their wait is almost over as the movie is coming to Netflix on April 1,2022!
Apollo 10 ½ Plot
The movie is set in 1969 and deals with the great space race between the U.S and the Soviet Union. Linklater uses some of his own childhood memories to display the astounding scenario of the U.S sending the first human to the moon. However, he has replaced Neil Armstrong with a child protagonist as the lunar module accidentally becomes too small to hold an adult. The story is unique and exciting. It features excellent graphics and an excellent team. Thus, we’re expecting nothing less than perfection in Apollo 10 1/2.
Linklater shared his take on Apollo 10 1/2 saying,
“After the years of work on Apollo 10 1/2, I think everyone involved is excited to take folks on these intermingled journeys – one a young astronaut’s trip to the moon, and another that runs hand-in-hand with him and his family in the suburbs near NASA. I wanted it to be many things at once: a re-creation, a fantasy, and a memoir of ephemera, and making a large portion of the film during these dark and unsettling last two years only sharpened our focus as to what were primarily trying to share in this story, namely the hope, optimism, communal spirit, and creativity of that time.”
Apollo 10 1/2 is going to be like no other movie. A lot of hard work went into making the movie as it doesn’t just make use of computer animated imagery. It adds in hand drawn animations to spice things up and make the movie extraordinary!
