Six Flags to get 'Moon' 3D film
This summer, two Six Flags parks will receive a new three-dimensional ride film that aims to bring the excitement of man's first journey to the moon to guests. 3D theaters at Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags Over Texas will premiere Fly Me to the Moon, a new computer animated film featuring the voices of Kelly Ripa, Christopher Lloyd and Nicolette Sheridan. Notably, it is the first-ever computer animated feature film designed, created, and produced from the first frame exclusively for the 3D experience. The fact based film follows three teenaged flies that end up stowaways inside the helmets of astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins on the Apollo 11 mission that marked America's first manned landing on the moon. "This innovative film is a great example of the kind of unique, first-run entertainment that our guests have come to expect at the new Six Flags," said Dan Weinberg, Six Flags Vice-President of Entertainment. "The collaboration with nWave allows us to continue the expansion and diversification of our in-park product." Fly Me to the Moon will debut on opening day 2008 at each park.
