Disney+’s new science-fiction film Crater follows a road trip across the surface of the moon. The coming-of-age film features We Can Be Heroes star Isaiah Russell-Bailey as the lead alongside Ghostbusters: Afterlife‘s Mckenna Grace, Invasion‘s Billy Barratt, Only Murders in the Building superfan Orson Hong, and Thomas Boyce. Crater will land on Disney+ on May 12.
Walt Disney Studios recently released the trailer for Crater, a new science-fiction movie headed for Disney+ that follows a group of children on a road trip across the moon. Check out the trailer below:
The trailer teases a heartwarming story of friendship and family, and through impromptu baseball games and meteor showers, the group bonds on their perilous journey on the lunar surface.
Everything We Know About Crater
Set on a lunar colony in the year 2257, Isaiah (Russell-Bailey) leads his three best friends, Dylan (Barratt), Borney (Hong), and Marcus (Boyce), on a quest for a distant crater, a destination revealed to Isaiah by his recently deceased father. Addison (Grace), a mysterious new arrival from Earth, joins the group on their dangerous trek. Isaiah must complete his father’s final request before he is sent off to live on another planet.
Directed by The Stanford Prison Experiment‘s Kyle Patrick Alvarez, Crater was penned by The Twilight Zone and From scribe John Griffin years prior. His spec script managed to place on the 2015 Black List, an industry collection of the most liked unproduced original screenplays. Although 20th Century Fox bought the script in 2017, Disney’s major acquisition of Fox halted production on the feature film for several years.
The family-friendly adventure movie promises a moving experience dealing with themes of loss, as Isaiah struggles with moving on following the untimely death of his father. Addison’s unknown Earth background may parallel Isaiah’s, providing the impetus for their connection. With Crater set to premiere on Disney+ next month, audiences don’t have to wait much longer to see what lies at the end of the friends’ lunar expedition.
