After their space ship is damaged in an asteroid field , 10-year-old Willy is separated from his explorer parents and finds himself alone on a dusty planet with only a cute robot for company in this fun animated adventure.

Nicely animated with a sweet story at its heart, this junior space adventure with a really likeable lead character is well worth seeking out.
