In celebration of the one-day theatrical event for Mune: Guardian of the Moon from GKIDS and Fathom Events, AWN has a set of tickets to give away to one lucky winner!

A fantastical animated adventure from the producers of The Little Prince, Mune: Guardian of the Moon will be in movie theaters nationwide for one day only on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 12:55 p.m. local time. The French-produced film is being released in a new English language version featuring Rob Lowe (Sohone), Christian Slater (Leyoon), Patton Oswalt (Mox), Ed Helms (Spleen) and Jeff Dunham (Phospho).

Directed by Alexandre Heboyan and Benoît Philippon, Mune: Guardian of the Moon was produced by ON Entertainment, the French prodco behind the 2016 animated feature The Little Prince, with animation provided by Mikros Image. The CG-animated feature follows Mune, a mischievous faun who is chosen to be the Guardian of the Moon: the one who brings about the night and watches over our dreams. But catastrophes occur and the underworld demon steals the Sun. With the help of Sohone, proud Guardian of the Sun, and fragile Glim, Mune embarks on an extraordinary quest that will make him a legendary guardian.

Tickets for Mune: Guardian of the Moon can be purchased online at, or at participating theater box offices. The program also includes GKIDS MINIFEST a super-fun, super-condensed festival of the best short animation from around the world.

The release of Mune: Guardian of the Moon continues the partnership between GKIDS and Fathom Events, which brings six masterpieces from the legendary Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli to theaters this year as part of STUDIO GHIBLI FEST.

Moviegoers throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 350 movie theaters. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
