A neat spin on the alien invasion movie, this bright and breezy cartoon has a picturesque planet of little green men and women thrown into a panic by the arrival of a visitor from beyond the stars. A US astronaut turns up and is confused to discover that he's seen as an extra-terrestrial aggressor. With plenty of nods to sci-fi classics and great voiceover work, this is a real treat.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
