As legend has it, the first Guardian of the Sun threw a harpoon into the cosmos and roped the sun to bring light and warmth to all of humanity. Then the Guardian of the Moon lured the moon to the Land of Darkness to provide a balance to the sun and supply the world with dreams. At a ceremony to appoint the two new guardians, an accident seems to occur: the heir apparent is passed over, and the title of Guardian of the Moon is bestowed on the waif-like creature, Mune, a small forest faun who is unprepared to take on such a weighty responsibility. This news excites Necross, the nefarious ruler of the Underworld, who decides to prey on Mune's weakness and steal the sun for himself. Now it is up to unlikely hero Mune and his friend Glim to save the sun and restore order to the world.
MUNE: GUARDIAN OF THE MOON will hit theaters nationwide on August 12th for a one-day-only special event! The award-winning fantasy adventure from the creators of "The Little Prince" will be newly released as an English language version featuring a stellar voice cast: Rob Lowe, Christian Slater, Patton Oswalt, Ed Helms, and Jeff Dunham.
