Let's Go Luna! Premiere
The Wilson Theatre is thrilled to invite you to the Idaho PTV Premiere of the new PBS show "Let's Go Luna!" Join us November 17 (time TBA) for a FREE screening of the newest PBS Kids offering.
At the PBS Annual Meeting, PBS KIDS announced that the new animated social studies series LET’S GO LUNA! will premiere Wednesday, November 21, 2018. Produced by 9 Story Media Group’s award-winning animation studio Brown Bag Films and created by Emmy Award-winning animator, writer and artist Joe Murray (Rocko’s Modern Life, Camp Lazlo), this new multiplatform series will debut nationwide on PBS stations, the 24/7 PBS KIDS channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms.
Research shows that young children have limited exposure to social studies concepts in school. To help address this gap, LET’S GO LUNA! will encourage kids ages 4-7 to explore and appreciate cultures worldwide, and build global citizenship and social skills.
LET’S GO LUNA! follows the adventures of three friends – Leo, a wombat from Australia; Carmen, a butterfly from Mexico; and Andy, a frog from the U.S. – as they traverse the globe with their parents’ traveling performance troupe, “Circo Fabuloso.” At each of the Circo’s stops, Luna the Moon, voiced by Judy Greer, guides the trio as they get to know the local region and its people. The gang’s adventures take them through cities around the globe – from London to Cairo to Beijing – where they explore the food, music, art, architecture and other features that make each place distinctive. Episodes end with the kids back at the Circo Fabuloso and Luna back in the sky, with a reminder that there’s always more to see, learn and experience in every place they visit.
“LET’S GO LUNA! gives children a vibrant introduction to some of the most interesting aspects of life around the globe, helping them appreciate what may be the same, and what may be different, about people’s everyday lives,” said Linda Simensky, Vice President, Children’s Programming, PBS. “The show combines the humor, detail and artistry for which Joe Murray is known with one of the core values of PBS KIDS: to encourage children’s curiosity and invite them to learn more about the world.”
