Plot summary

What is Over the Moon movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Over the Moon" movie plot summary.

A girl named Fei Fei (Cathy Ang) is being told the legend of the Moon goddess Chang'e (Phillipa Soo) who took a potion for immortality, causing her to become a goddess and ascend to the Moon without her lover Houyi (Conrad Ricamora), and awaits for him there. In preparation for the annual Moon Festival, Fei Fei and her family make mooncakes for the village. However, Fei Fei's mother falls ill, and gifts her daughter a bunny named Bungee (Edie Ichioka), before passing away.
Fei Fei, who still believes in Chang'e four years later, is upset when she learns that her father is engaged to Ms. Zhong, and is annoyed by her son, Chin (Robert G. Chiu). Fei Fei's family joins them for the Moon Festival celebration, but during their meal Fei Fei realizes that her father no longer believes in Chang'e as her family dismisses the goddess's existence. Upset, she runs away to the lake she used to go to with her family and remembers her mother. Inspired by a crane and the legend of Chang'e, she decides to build a rocket to the Moon to prove that Chang'e is real. She designs a rocket that resembles a Chinese paper lantern in the shape of a rabbit that uses fireworks to boost her speed. Her rocket almost succeeds until she realizes that Chin snuck aboard her rocket and they begin to crash to Earth. Suddenly, the rocket is captured in a mystical beam of energy and taken to the Moon. They crash land after being beset by playful spirits, who then rescue them and take them to Lunaria, a kingdom composed entirely of light on the dark side of the moon and Chang'e's home.
They are introduced to Chang'e and her backup dancers, the Lunettes. Chang'e tells Fei Fei that she was supposed to deliver a gift for Chang'e to bring Houyi back. Fei Fei takes a photo with Chang'e to prove she is real, but Chang'e takes the photo from Fei Fei and demands the gift. Fei Fei doesn't know what she is talking about, and a frustrated Chang'e announces a competition to find her gift before the last of the moondust falls. Fei Fei gets upset with Chin and leaves him, getting a ride with the Lunarian Biker Chicks to the crash site. Chin sees some Lunettes with the photo and is captured by Chang'e who demands the location of the gift. Chang'e challenges Chin to a game of ping pong that Chin wins, where he chides Chang'e on her past selfishness of taking the potion for herself which caused her separation from Houyi in the first place, further upsetting Chang'e. In retaliation, she traps Chin in a chamber and refuses to give him the photo. Chang'e then cries in despair that she will never see Houyi again, causing a meteor show with her emotions. After Chin's imprisonment, Bungee escapes and follows the Jade Rabbit into his workplace where they both fall in love with each other.
