The Kid Should See This

One Small Step, an Oscar-nominated animated short

Update: The short was removed so we replaced it with the trailer.

One Small Step is a touching and bittersweet story by Taiko Studios, a cross-cultural animation studio based in Los Angeles and Wuhan, China. Directed by Disney alums Andrew Chesworth and Bobby Pontillas, the award-winning animated short is Oscar-nominated for the 91st annual Academy Awards. Chesworth describes it as a “love letter to everyone who chased that impossible dream, and the family that supported them through it.”

Luna is a vibrant young Chinese American girl who dreams of becoming an astronaut. From the day she witnesses a rocket launching into space on TV, Luna is driven to reach for the stars. In the big city, Luna lives with her loving father Chu, who supports her with a humble shoe repair business he runs out of his garage. As Luna grows up, she enters college, facing adversity of all kinds in pursuit of her dreams.
