A new Netflix animated movie will give a new perspective on the first moon landing. Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood comes from the mind of Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Richard Linklater (Boyhood, A Scanner Darkly) from his time of growing up as a kid in Houston in 1969 during the Apollo 10 launch. It features an all-star cast that includes Glen Powell, Zachary Levi, and Jack Black. Instead of just being fascinated by a moon landing, Stan is recruited by NASA since the lunar module they built is too small for an adult to pilot.
