I saw this before a screening of Strings at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. Sure, you can create neato animated characters. Sure, you can have a cute little storyline. Sure, you can make it. You can find and pay animators to create it. But, this short has no heart... it just frankly doesn't work. The crowd didn't laugh, smile, clap... nothing... And my heart felt empty after watching it. On a different note, I liked Corpse Bride fairly well though not great. But Moongirl is a huge waste of time and money. It feels like a marketing ploy. Let's throw a bunch of cuteness at the audience. They'll love it. But you don't feel the love of the director or animators. Its totally flat.
