The Rebel Alliance
A gorgeous interstellar adventure for anyone who’s looked to the stars and imagined the cosmos.
With the help of her awesome parents, 8-year-old Ellen, paints a spaceship she has drawn at school on her bedroom ceiling. As darkness falls and the moon rises, the ship comes to life. Joining Ellen on board are new friends and trusted crew members Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstong, Laika the space dog, and the first woman in space, Valentina Tereshkova.
Ellen goes on an extraordinary adventure that takes her past the edge of the unknown and onto the surface of an alien planet, Vitanonan X. Acclaimed theatremaker Anders Falstie-Jensen pays tribute to the extraordinary imagination of kids who manage to stretch mightily to keep their feet on the ground as they reach for the stars.
