2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Richard Linklater’s Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure

Netflix decided to completely forgo the film festival circuit around the midway mark this year and so the big mystery question at this point is the outfitters’ strategy for Sundance. Acquired back in July, the finicky nature of animation means that Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Adventure could still have a lot more time to go until completion, but the good news is that the live action portion wrapped in this last March in Austin. Richard Linklater enlisted Jack Black, Zachary Levi, Glen Powell, Josh Wiggins, Milo Coy, Lee Eddy, Bill Wise, Natalie L’Amoreaux, Jessica Brynn Cohen, Sam Chipman and Danielle Guilbot for the 1969 Apollo mission to the moon – here’s a set pic. We think this has moonshot chances to land in the programme but seeing that Linklater has been a mainstay at the fest perhaps Netflix might added some family fun to the ’21 mission.

Gist: Set against the backdrop of the 1969 Apollo mission to the moon this is inspired by Linklater’s childhood in Houston, TX.

Production Co./Producers: Tommy Pallotta, Mike Blizzard, Femke Wolting, Bruno Felix.
