Time for a new blogathon! This time, I am inviting you to write about films that take place in outer space.
Space operas, space fantasies, space parodies, space horror stories, animated films set in space–any and all of these are welcome!
Only two rules:
At least one character in the film MUST leave Earth’s gravitational pull at some point.
So it’s O.K. if much of the film is earth bound, as long as at least one character is not during the film.
Of course, it’s also O.K. if the character(s) were never on Earth in the first place, i.e. in a galaxy far, far away.
Any film from any era, any country is eligible. Shorts (including animated shorts) are welcome, too!
The blogathon will run Friday, April 13 – Sunday, April 15. You may post any day (or earlier, if you wish).
To claim your topic, please request your choice in the comments section below, or contact me on Twitter (@DebbieVee). Include the name and URL of your blog. Then grab one of the banners below, display it on your blog and link it back to this post.
Thanks for joining in!
