This week’s trailer opens like an episode of The Twilight Zone: ethereal mist slowly trickles over a black screen as a hushed narrator describes Lucky’s strange dream-ventures into space. The background jingles intensify as the constellations brighten, and Lucky—drawn like a two-toned comic character—reaches for a white-hot star. Suddenly, he awakes in his corporeal form, his bedsheet turned to ash. The effect is whimsical, jarring, and especially intriguing. “An inspirational tale of embracing empathy and fighting despair,” S. F. Said’s Phoenix (Candlewick) explores how one boy’s power can bring two species together.
