STAR BOUND cover image
The animation and art style of Star Bound is especially charming; it looks as though it was drawn with crayons, which is cute. Plus the conversation between a Mission Operations Engineer at NASA and his 6-year-old nephew is very real and genuine.

The documentary is a discussion by a NASA engineer and his young nephew about space and what they wish to discover.

This film is so cute, especially if you have a love for space. It's an animated conversation between a professional adult and a six-year-old. Most of the film is made of drawings of space. The art style is very information and juvenile. In addition to the space setting is a stairway entrance to house where the two appear to be seated while having their conversation. There is minimal background music and it's nothing noteworthy. The characters are based on real people, although they are animated in the film. However, their conversation is very genuine. The simple, yet charming animation is the most notable thing about the film.

The message is that the universe is so vast and filled with things to discover.

I give Star Bound 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 4 to 18, plus adults interested in space exploration. Reviewed by Calista B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

Joey Jefferson, a Mission Operations Engineer at NASA, talks with his outer space-obsessed six-year-old nephew Jerry Morrison. Together they explore why space is so fascinating, where they would live if they could choose another planet, and how much more we have to discover. As Joey says, "my hope is that you are always going to be doing and learning about the things that you love the most."
